    Open Carry States

    Hey all ~

    I currenty hold a Washington State CWP and just recieved my paper work to obtain a non-resident Florida state CWP, which covers quite a few more states, I do a lot of motorcycle touring and ride through Colorado often, Colorado does not issue CWP's to non-residents. My question is this ... ...

    Is it legal to "Open Carry" in the state of Colorado ?

    Washington does not issue a CWP, or permit of any kind with regards to firearms. Actually.

    Actually they do. They are even a "shall issue" state.

    Washington state issues a "Concealed Pistol License". They don't issue a "Concealed Weapon Permit" or a "Concealed Weapon License".

    Florida OTOH issues a "Concealed Weapons License". The difference is what you're allowed to carry under the authority of the license. If the state issues a "Pistol" or "Firearms" license, then the license is restricted to "firearms" or "pistols" unless otherwise authorized by law or statute. In the case of Florida, the use of the term "Weapons" would allow the licensee to carry knives, daggers, etc. unless otherwise limited or restricted by law.

    I AM NOT A LAWYER! DO NOT TAKE ANYTHING I POST AS "LEGAL ADVICE". I'M AN EXPERIENCED FIREARMS INSTRUCTOR WITH PERMITS/LICENSES IN VAROIUS STATES OF WHICH I UNDERSTAND THE LAWS GOVERNING THE CONDITIONS AND RESTRICTIONS OF THE LICENSE/PERMIT. PLEASE CONSULT AN ATTORNEY FAMILIAR WITH FIREARMS LAWS IN THE RESPECTIVE JURISDICTIONS IN QUESTION FOR "LEGAL ADVICE'.

    The term "weapon" implies an offensive use. I like to use the term "pistol", "firearm", "handgun", etc. As a NRA Instructor, and one who often comes in contact with strongly "anti" groups or individuals, I find that using the more "PC" term, though at times nauseating, will help difuse many of their arguments.

    I do my best to appeal to as many people as possible. I might not agree with having to be "PC" all of the time, but it's the most effective way to get my message across.

    As a child I took boxing lessions from my golden glove brother-in-law, as a tenager I took 4-years of Taekowndo, and later in life I took hand to hand combative classes, just to be PC how should I refer to my hands.

    Should I call my hands, hands or weapons, wait .... nose pickers ! BUT you're right the PC people are nauseating ... ... it's time for a change, they need to get over themselves, as I am tired of being PC.

    My point was that it's a license not a permit. No drama though, I knew what you meant.
