    Common Abbreviations

    Hi Guys,

    As was mentioned in a previous thread, there are a lot of abbreviations for concealed weapons permits. Here's a list I started. Feel free to add to it if you know of other commonly used abbreviations. Also, we can have a section of other abbreviations that are found on discussions, like BUG for back-up gun, BG for bad guy, etc.

    Once I have a substantial list, I'll send it to Luke and see if he wants to put it up as a link somewhere on the site.

    Common Firearms Abbreviations:
    CWP: concealed weapons permit
    CCP: concealed carry permit
    CFP: concealed firearm permit
    CHL: concealed handgun license
    CWL: concealed weapon license
    WCL: weapons carry license
    LCH: license to carry handgun
    CDWL: concealed deadly weapons license
    CPL: concealed pistol license
    CHP: concealed handgun permit

    State of Confusion
    NY permits now may come with abbreviated restrictions. We always engaged in restriction stacking when doing permit services. We would advise clients to apply for a CCW permit for hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, mountain biking, exercise walking, target, competition and carrying sums of money. The actual permit has a one inch space to list restrictions so many times the permit would just be "unrestricted." Worked well for a while. Now the state got wise to it and some counties are using the abbreviations (H, F, HIK, MB, EX, TAR, COMP, $$). Damn, had them fooled for a while.
