AZ CWP Reciprocity
I email AZ CWP DEPT for a friend of mine to get a application for a non-resident for him. They replied and said we only have one permit - we do not differentiate between resident and non-resident. My question is, on the carry maps should'nt the reciprocity be the same for the resident and non-resident since they do not differentiate between resident and non-resident?
I rather be safe then sorry.
It's better to have it when you need it then need it and dont have it.

For the states that don't recognize the "non-resident" permit, what state is the driver's license issued from?
That will settle the residency matter. If your friend has a NY driver's license and an AZ permit and is in a state that doesn't recognize non-resident permits things could get a bit troublesome. So, the answer to your question is, "No."
Each state is free to do as they wish, within the guidelines and framework of already established law, and the Constitution. Not recognizing an out of state or non-resident permit is pefectly within the bounds of the law.

If you have a Arizona Driver's License... you have a resident permit.
If your driver's license is from ANY other state, your Arizona CWP is non-resident.

At least while in our fine state that is! However, remember the laws about establishments that serve alcohol and CCW, i.e. permit holders only. AZ has different requirements for receiving the permit for residents and non-residents, but the permit itself is the same.

Go to handgunlaw.us, the yellow states are the ones where you can't use a non-resident permit. If your friend is going to visit FL anytime, he may want to get that one instead, since AZ won't cover him if he doesn't live in AZ. That's assuming he doesn't have a SC permit, if he lives there.

When it comes to recognition/reciprocity, your residency is determined whether the permit in question is from the same state you reside in, not the permit itself.
