Known as CCW
in the USA and PTCFOR
(permit to carry firearm outside of residence) in .ph
, a document which signifies that its owner is allowed to carry a concealed weapon as is specified on the permit. "Weapon" more often than not means a firearm. In some places carrying a jungle knife
is illegal even with a CCW.
The PTCFOR in .ph also has restrictions on where you can pack. Packing a concealed weapon is allowed in most places except amusement places, churches, drinking places, and rallies. One is, by law, limited to 50 rounds of ammunition while packing, fortunately this is never enforced. It would be silly to shuttle back and forth to the gun store and one's home just to buy a case of ammunition.
