    Which state should I get my permit in

    As soon as I get back from Afghanisatn I want to get my permit. I'm a resident of Texas but am stationed in Virginia. I would just get the Virginia one except I know I will be moving around August. If things go my way I'll either go to Kansas or Oklahoma. Should I get VA's then change it once I get were I'm going or can I get Texas and just leave it at that? I hope this makes sense.

    Kansas does not honor non resident permits.

    Without doing a lot of research, and depending which state you end up in, if it were me, I think I'd get the Florida non-resident license. Check handgunlaws.us to see the states where it's accepted.

    I think your best bet is to get a Texas resident license, since you’re a resident of Texas you can apply for a Texas license and be legal in VA, KS, and OK. You can apply on line for a Texas License as long as you have a TX driver’s license or ID card (http://www.texasonline.state.tx.us/N...sp/welcome.jsp )
    This will save you the time and money of applying for multiple permits and changing your resident status.
    Once you know exactly where you will end up you can go from there. If you do a lot of traveling, it may be wise to apply for a FL and/or UT none resident permit.
    CT, ME, PA, VA, UT, NH, FL all allow you to apply by mail for none resident permits.

    Hope this helps.

    If you get a Utah non-resident, you can carry in like 27 states.

    Since Oregon is essentially only valid in Oregon, I had to get the Utah one just to cross the river into Washington. Plus it gives me the flexibility to go other places.

    Nothing in military regulations forbid military personnel from CC, as long as they follow the laws of the state they are in. As for carrying on base, NO, you may not, unless authorized by installation commander. Base housing residents may transport to and from their quarters, but only from car to house.

    JMO, but since you are a resident of Texas I would get your Texas permit. It has a wide recognition base, and until you change your official home of record you are legal to apply as a resident.

    Thanks for the info guys, I think I'm just going to get the Texas and call it good until I plan on traveling through some other states. Just gotta wait until I get back to the states and get a new Texas drivers license, otherwise I'd already start the process. Thanks for the Info.
