The two that are most-often obtained for that purpose are Utah and Florida. There are advantages and disadvantages to each. A great place to research these and others is www.handgunlaw.us.

Without diving into your personal lives, I was wondering who carries a permit for where they live, where they travel, or for as much of the nation as they can. Obviously, we all have non-gun friendly states we try to avoid, but I find myself wanting to obtain a permit for as much of the United States as I can. The reason being in case of travel for business, vacation, and some times termporary duty away from my present duty station. So I attached a poll to find out who: Carries a permit just for where they live, where business/vacation often takes them, and for as much of the US as you can. Trying to find out if I'm the crazy one or if I'm just joining the club! Lol
I obtained my CWFL for where I live. Fortunately, it also covers any state I'm likely to visit. Anywhere else is pure gravy.

Our North Carolina permit is good in over 30 states and covers anywhere I want to go and even some places I have no desire to go.

I have my Missouri ccw and the Missouri permit is the most accepted in the country. So I'm covered. Whatever states that don't except it I don't want to visit.
I obtained mine from NC where I reside. That covers me most places I travel (excluding other countries). My HR 218 (for retired LEO's) covers me most other places although with that permit I have to carry a semi-auto because thats what I qualified with.

Hard to answer with the limited choices given. I have my permit from my home state. It also covers where I work as well as where I vacation/travel to. As for work travel, I don't. Not many places a warehouse manager travels for work.

I have a Georgia permit and it covers any state I wish to visit.
I avoid long-distance travel as much as I can. When I MUST go visit relatives (in-laws) it's in California so I'm screwed no matter what permit I have. There are enough folks at work that volunteer for TDY that I never have to go anywhere for that. If I did it would be San Diego, Pearl, or Yokosuka, so I would still be screwed.
So I've not had much interest in getting any other permit than WA.

I have both my state's permit, and the Utah non-resident permit. The latter I got so that I could carry in Ohio...we have family there and travel there at times. Actually, I wish they had a "national" carry permit, but am a bit afraid it would turn into some kind of registration scheme under this administration.
I would rather die on my feet, than to live on my knees.
I have an Oregon Concealed Handgun License and a Utah Concealed Firearm Permit that cover me in most of my travels. Nothing works in California. I was going to add an Arizona permit, but Nevada dropped them as a reciprocal state. Florida doesn't add anything for me.
I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.
