You're talking duty carry only, right? Because Wa. has no restrictions for permit holders at all.

Duty and off duty. I don't have a CPL. I carry as an off duty officer meaning I have to carry with what I qualify with. I could carry "anything" but I may not be legally covered if the shooting goes wrong. Citing I was using an unauthorized weapon.
But then of course I might be a 13 year old girl who reads alot of gun magazines, so feel free to disregard anything I post.
You are aware of the LEOSA, yes?

I can't even imagine being tied to a specific weapon or having restrictions on it's function.
My dept (I'm reserve) has a similar policy. We have to qualify with on duty BUGs (which makes total sense) but we're also supposed to qualify with what they call "off duty guns." I qualify with my G-26 for use as an on duty BUG.
I have an IA permit with no tie in to any weapon. Off duty (which is 99% of the time for me) I carry whatever I want.
It gets muddier when carrying out of state under LEOSA, my dept requires qualification and logs serial numbers.
We can carry any handgun we want in Louisiana. Maybe a few at the time.
And no, junior not being able to hold still for 5 seconds is not a disability.
Nevada used to make you qualify and list weapons.

Texas used to distinguish between revolvers and semi-autos, but now does not. There is one permit only.
The fish is mute, expressionless. The fish doesn't think because the fish knows everything.
Believe it or not, in Illinois we can carry our handgun of choice and as many as we want.
My NY permit listed the guns right on it.
At least I had a NY permit when I lived there.
plus I was young...I only had 3 pistols

LEOSA is a complicated issue. There have been several cases where corrections officers have used the law to carry off duty even though their departments don't allow 'on the badge' carry. AFAIK no one has been involved in an off duty shooting with a weapon not blessed by their department.
NY for all it's 2a issues doesn't restrict what you can carry. If you own it you can carry it. And unlike other states there is no live fire qualification required to get a pistol license.
'I'm pretty fly for a white guy'.
Yup. VERY complicated, and more if you're a reserve like me. Here's a recent article:
Kentucky is unrestricted. You can qualify with a different pistol than you carry, and your permit doesn't specify what you carry. It's nice to re-evaluate my carry options and change without having to involve any governmental agency.

In addition, you may be good to go under the federal law, but your department can still discipline you for violating policy, and your state's certifiying agency may suspend your certification due to violating state administrative code.
It's a mess.
Knowing what one is talking about is widely admired but not strictly required here.
Although sometimes distracting, there is often a certain entertainment value to this easy standard.

And let me add, please, that when you get a CCW here in Idaho it doen't just make it lawful for you to be armed with a pistol. It means you can lawfully carry ANY type of concealed weapon, and as many of 'em as you want, in any combination that you want to carry at any time, too, ie: knives, black-jacks, crow bars, brass knuckles, et al. You could legally conceal a 12-ga shotgun if you could figure out how to do it.

No restrictions in WA, anything you like.

Revolver or semi (or both), whatever you qualify with. And no caliber larger than what you qualify with.
Thus the metric system did not really catch on in the States, unless you count the increasing popularity of the nine-millimeter bullet.

No restrictions here.

Seriously??? If you have purchased a 226 and licensed it as a concealed carry. How the funk is the state going to know you are safe enough to carry a 229?!?!? That 1/2' difference in essentially the same gun could cause the planets to collide if used improperly.
We have no restrictions where I live. Once you pay fee and wait around 30 days to get the permit you are GTG with whatever you feel like strapping on that day. No permission needed to swap your carry weapon if you make a new purchase.
I used to think VA was a R state and conservative, it's not so much anymore. I fear that things could go wrong with a few more McAwefuls and Kaines in leadership.
My state leaders are in bed with the Clintons and the morons around me keep electing these corrupt POSs.
Sorry to turn political, but gosh I hate the State of my State.
