    If I were in your shoes, I would go introduce myself to the local PD Chief and /or Sheriff and ask them..surely they would know.

    Check gunlaws.org to see if your IN permit has reciprocity in KY; if so, you're probably legal to carry, but you should apply for a KY permit post haste, and carry documentation that you have done so.

    As a resident, you have to live here 6 months to apply for a permit. I would think the IN permit is good, but I don't know. Let us know what you find out. Call your local sheriff's office.

    OH , and welcome to Kentucky. It's one of the most gun friendly states there is.

    KY does recognize an Indiana license - BUT-

    Technically you are NOW a resident of KY
    (You have a KY DL and Address )

    You must be a KY RESIDENT for 6 months to get a KY carry license.

    You're no longer a resident in Indiana, but does your resident Indiana CHL still keep you legally carrying? I highly doubt it. I'm betting your license ceased to cover you the moment you no longer maintained residency and claimed primary residency elsewhere. Check with your Sheriff in KY and IN, to be sure.

    Well, I did do a search and found that MI, FL, and a few others will not recognize a permit from a state the holder is not a resident of...KY was not on that list.

    Effective July 15, 1998, Kentucky recognizes valid carry concealed deadly weapons licenses issued by other states and, subject to the provisions of Kentucky law, a person holding a valid license from another state may carry a concealed deadly weapon in Kentucky.

    Even the KY site does not seem to require the holder of a permit from any other state to be a resident of that state...I would certainly check with local LE, but I suspect you may be OK...I would be getting a KY permit ASAP anyway!

    (There was a USA CCW Reciprocity Map on this forum a while back, but it was not correct according to FL law...although FL gives out CCW permits to individuals who are not residents, FL only recognizes CCW permits from states where the holder is a resident.)

    This may not apply in Kentucky but is something to think about.

    Colorado does not recognize CHL from states in which the holder is not a resident of. I can't legally carry in Colorado with a Florida permit if I'm a Colorado resident.

    I'll call your local sheriff for the final answer.

    DO NOT ask a cop. Go to your state's website and access the appropriate laws, or get in touch with someone who is a certified CW trainer. Most police officers aren't aware of the finer points of firearms law. You are liable to get incorrect information.

    ttpete is correct. You could ask the same question to 3 different LE and get 3 different answers

    For what is worth, don't trust what you read on the internet. Way too easy to hack a site, content and such. Most don't realize that, but, trust me on this one. As others have said, AG office or other knowledgeable state rep would know. Luck.
    I know, I know, you are smarter than me..just ask you..
