Hello I am planning a trip east from Illinois and am wandering which states on my trip have reciprocity with my non resident Pennsylvania permit?
Seems many CC site maps are out of date, any help would be appreciated

"If I walk in the woods, I feel much more comfortable carrying a gun. What if you meet a bear in the woods that's going to attack you? You shoot it."
Since you didn't mention where you were going (Stopping in PA?), you are not legal in DC, New Jersey or Maryland either.

First off, welcome to the forum.
Hard to really answer your question without knowing where your headed, and what route your planning on taking. I believe handgunlaw.us is going to be your most up to date info, however don't just rely on it, check with each state as well. Remember the internet is a resource to use, but is not always up to date.

the border of your next nearest state which might honor your PA non-resident?
I think (unless I'm missing something which is always possible) that you might have a lot of learning and catching up to do on your situation; and probably would be wise to lock that gun away until you determine with 100% certainty if you can even leave your front porch.
You certainly won't be protected by either FOPA or PA non-resident while driving in IL. (Or if you are covered by FOPA--assuming you are even legal to have it in your home and under FOPA maybe that would count as a starting point where you are legal-- then all you can do is lock it the trunk of your car and drive, pretty much non-stop, to PA.
I think you have lots to think about before you leave on this trip with a gun in possession. It sounds to me like it is not possible to do it legally; and therefore shouldn't even be attempted.
Hopefully others will comment on your present handgun possession in IL and shed some light on the legality or illegality of that.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

Keep it, unloaded in a case and you are fine until you get out of the state. After that you really need to review the laws of each state or locality which you are going to travel through. Knowledge of the law will be invaluable during your trip.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
