    RI is also not that bad, at least if you have a NYS permit. We just got a new AG though and I haven't heard how his standard will be. You could also apply to one of the local chiefs for a permit (who are Shall Issue). I do not know anyone who has gotten a non resident permit from a police chief or of any case law on it, so it might be difficult.
    You should also come up with a good reason why you need/want the permit.
    If you are simply traveling through a state, you probably do not need a permit for every state as most states let you pass thorugh if you firearm is unloaded and secure. However, you need to check the laws in the state you travel through.
    I think the issue here is he would like to be able to CARRY the LOADED gun while traveling through the state. Is that really too much to ask of these states? I don't think so.

    If you want the coverage in FL, then you'll have to get FL.

    Otherwise, I'd recommend Arizona. You can use your NY permit for the required training...it gives you ALMOST the same reciprocity as FL...and it about 1/2 the cost for the initial and about 1/3 the cost for renewals.

    I didn't think MA would give you a CCW w/o a good reason and would normally issue a target/hunting license. Maybe I've been misinformed. You are correct about RI, I was going on old info, maybe the new AG is better. I'm eventually going to hit up the Chief in my hometown where my parents are to see if he'll give me one. I grew up there and am trustee of the estate. When I travel there it's late night/early morning and I'd like to be able to carry door to door non stop.

    I am frequently reminded of the ridiculous hodgepodge of laws that create the veritable minefield just waiting to blow to hell a law abiding citizen's legal status and right to carry for the rest of his life. One little slip up and you are staring at a felony that will strip you of your 2A rights. Every single time I plan a motorcycle trip I have to carefully map out a course that will prevent me from going to jail due to the whim of a particular state. They honor my damned driver's license and should be forced to honor my carry license.

    Very frustrating.

    It would be a lot easier to gas up and drive non-stop thru the states your permit doesn't cover.

    A while ago a saw an interactive map where you could pick the start and end state you would travel through, and I think it let you pick the state permits you had. It would then map a route where you could travel to legally carry. I don't remember where this is, can someone else help me out?

    Thanks guys - this is the type of info that it'd take someone like me forever to figure out. Keep the good info comin. So...the MA has a non res, but it's 100 /year ? That seems a bit steep. But it seems I'm spending more and more time there. It went from once every 3-5 yrs to annually..and longer stays.

    I assume non residents need a "MA Legal" gun?

    If you have your home state permit, they will usually give you a permit without a restriction. However, if you have a restriction on your permit, they will put that restriction on the MA permit. A lot of RI permits have Work Purpose Only, or Target Range, and they get that restriction. It's too bad the AG puts restrictions on the permits in RI since they have no legality.
    MA residents are a different story, and it depends a lot on where you live, unfortunately. Some chiefs hand out permits like they were candy, while others don't give them out at all...
    I think I have seen your name on another thread, but I don't remember what town you plan on visiting in RI... Drop me an email/message if you need help/info on RI permits.

    Yeah, we talked about RI in another thread. I've got some other things going on right now but when thats over with I'll tackle RI and will reach out for help.

    Thanks for the MA info I didn't realize they would use your home state as a base. My NY is restricted but my FL, CT and PA are not and I'm sure MA wouldn't care about those.

    chivvalry, I wish everyone honored every ones like drivers license also and I would be able to really retire. The laws are different in every state. With the way we move around now it is very difficult to keep up with everything.

Unbeatable!

    I hope that new SC law goes through...then it would also be covered under the FL/Utah non-resident!
    Don't know what you mean...FL concealed carry law specifically says that the names of permit holders are not to be made public except by court order as part of an investigation.

    I don't know if it has been mentioned here, but FL does not accept any non resident permits except their own issued non-res permit. So if you don't live in AZ and got a non res AZ permit it will not be honored in FL.
