Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
Hi and welcome to the forum. You can Google "Reciprocity Map" and find out which permits are good for where and if they have reciprocity with other states. If you wanted to get more defined, you will probably need to get some information from local law enforcement agencies that you are planning on traveling through. You have to be careful about some places and the recency of postings about the subject on the internet as they may be outdated. It can get confusing I think and I'm affraid it's not all black and white. Good Luck!

As stated above, use handgunlaw.us but take it a step further. Don't just rely on it being up to date. Use their info to find the states own web site and verify. Do this EVERY trip or you run the good chance of getting caught with "old" info and possibly loosing your permit to carry.
You have to be willing to invest the time to carry legally.
In addition to handgunlaw.us; here's a site where you can plan your trip and it guides you through the gun laws, and routes you and such. You click on the states you're planning on traveling to and it provides a complete list of those "planned" states and your concealed carry status. One pager. Pretty neat!

handgunlaw.us is gives statewide laws but there may be town specific laws within each state. for example within NC, open carry is illegal in Durham, and any type of carry is illegal in Cary...
"In a world of compromise, some don't." -HK
From the town website:
The Town of Cary does not allow the open or concealed carry of a weapon while on any public property within our community including on greenways, in public parks or Town facilities, or in Town-owned parking lots. The ordinance does not allow the open carry of any firearm on public sidewalks or right-of-ways. See Section 22-51(a) of the Town of Cary Code of Ordinances.
So they are trying to say your cannot OC anywhere in town, but you can CC as long as it's not on town property. It's a strange distinction.
My suggestion is to make a list of each state and its firearms laws that may affect what you are most likely to encounter, IE: can you carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol, can you carry in an interstate reststop (GA no), is that state a "must notify" or not, and such. Handgunlaw.us is a good place to start, but I'd go with each state's website on the subject as final authority. It will take a bit of research but may worth it. I think you'll find most states are fairly similar.
On index cards:
FL: Reciprocy - Yes (No)
OC - No; CC- Yes Must retreat - No
CC in Restaurants - Yes (but not in/at bars/taverns)
Et cetera for those carrying situations you are most likely to encounter.

sorry for the late reply been working late in cincinnati ohio. thanks for the websites and information.
And stay out of NY... is a dangerous waste of time. You can't even get within 100 feet of the state line with a handgun, you will be banished! (This is an exaggeration, but they are strict. And you cannot even posess, in vehicle regardless of condition, unless you are only passing through with no stops, or are going to a sanctioned shooting sports event.)

You should print out the pages from the handgunlaw site and make a little book for your car. It's pretty handy.
