My sister and I are planning to take a trip through most of the Southeastern United States next spring. I checked Handgunlaw.us for reciprocity and it seems the only Southern state that doesn't honor Alaska's permit is West Virginia. Are they pretty up to date on the reciprocity, or should I look elsewhere for more accurate information?
Another thing I'm sort of worried about is putting my handgun in my checked baggage, and having it lost or stolen. I would like to think most airlines are pretty good about preventing guns from going missing. For those of you who travel frequently, have you had pretty good luck with getting your gun through?
I think the states we'll be going through are TN, MS, FL, VA, OH, and MO, and finally DC (I know I can't take my gun into DC). Should I check each state's carry laws?
