    Reciprocity

    Simple question here. When was the first time you carried out of your home state to another that honored your CCW permit? What state was it and what state were you coming from?

    West Virginia was technically the first state for me, but I never got out of the car. Virginia was the first state that I got out and carried.

    At the time I lived in Florida so Georgia or Alabama. I traveled for work at the time and can't remember which one it was.
    It's nice living in the southeast, most states have reciprocity down here.

    North Carolina for me, I live in SC and work in NC. Other states since have been Virgina and Georgia, only because GA recognizes my NH non-res permit. As for my numerous trips to Florida, no reciprocity there for me, hopefully that will change soon. Oh almost forgot the state of Walmart.

    PA Permit, Was in college in TN and carried a friends gun anytime he and I were out. He was 20 and could not get his permit yet and I was unable to LEGALLY have my gun on Campus nor allowed to live off campus. We shot together often and he trusted me with his Gun. I only got caught once by a hugger who I let catch me (leading him toward CC).

    In July I drove to MI from OK (and back) and carried the whole way without a hitch. This Saturday I will be flying to MI and will be taking my sidearm with me.

    From PA to VA. Had to keep my CCW locked away under Peaceable Journey while transiting the PRMD though :(

    Didn't go to a restaurant that serves alcohol, so I haven't tried the "Virginia Tuck" yet.

    Got my UT permit last month after a 4 month wait, so DE will probably be my next out-of-PA experience carrying.

    I like the state of Pa although it sucks bordering Md and NJ and NY. I live right on the MD line and all my fam live in Md. Don't get the chance to carry out of the state. I am envious of you all down south.

    Good call on the UT permit rmarkob. I live in CT, have a NH non-res, VA non-res will be in the mail tomorrow, and then I will be getting the UT non-res. There are a couple of UT certified instructors here in CT. After that will be Maine. Those 5 permits will allow me to legally carry in 36 of the 50 states (DC doesn't count).

    It cost almost the same as FL when you factor in the $50 I paid for a course with a Utah-certified instructor, but the wait was much longer than FL.

    At the time I applied, there was a 2 or 3 state difference between UT and FL, and I thought the UT permit would be more useful to me. PA has added reciprocity with more states since then. Now KS is the only additional state that recognizes FL but not UT for me as a PA resident. The catch is that the FL permit is only good (in KS) for FL residents, so no net gain for me.

    My score: 34-16 (also not counting DC)
