Moving to a reciprocal state with your permit
On another forum this morning, a member posted about moving from NC to TX in which the person has a NC permit which is recognized in TX. Now...........once a person has established permanent residence in their new state, just how long is the original (now out of state) permit good for? Or is it good at all? We all know that a new driver's license should top the list of things to do, and that a carry permit should go hand in hand with the person's DL (not looking for arguments here). I've never heard of 'grandfather' clauses pertaining to carry permits. Will some states allow an even trade with a processing fee? Can a person legally use their out of state (reciprocal) permit until it expires? Anyone have good, solid info on this subject? I'll be checking with my state police on this, but I'm sure different places have different laws and hence different interpretations of how things go. I'm sure some of our members who are permit instructors should know this for their respective states.
