However, again according to Handgunlaw, most states appear to accept certain permits no matter where you live. I kind of wonder if those states may adjust to make their residents have their own state permit in order to carry there.

I was about to ask that question, which states require you to have a state permit if you reside there.
I was planning on getting stationed in Wilmington, NC...that fell through. Most likely I will be going to Philadelphia now. As soon as I leave NC and establish a domicile in PA, my NC permit will no longer be valid.
Technically, accoridng to my home of record for the Coast Guard, I am a resident of Florida. I wonder in I can get a resident CCW and just give them a copy of whatever form it is with my address in Hialeah?.?. Any ideas?
Depending on what state you get moved to, you may have to get that states carry permit. Some states require you obtain their permit if you are living there. Other states will only accept resident permits. To find more info try:

I would like to mention that the site handgunlaw.us is a privately owned and operated website. I have actually found information on this site that was not quite accurate. They may make every attempt to be current but CCW laws can change in a heartbeat. Make sure you check each states official website for the current CCW laws or write the Attorney General of the state in question. Remember, as a responisble permit holder, it is your responsibility to know the law of each state if you plan to carry outside of your permit area. FYI

Many Canadian firearm owners were getting this permit, so they could carry while in the US. There was an Instructor running an excellent course and who submitted all the required paperwork to make it legal. Sadly I missed his class and am now unable to get the permit as the Utah office refuses all new applications, despite not having a legal reason to do so. As an out of state resident I could fully understand local taxpayers not wanting to subsidize my permit application and would accept the requirement of a higher fee. Also the permit validity could be tied to the firearm licence issued by the home state to the person and if their home state pulled their permit or barred them from having a gun it would invalidate the Utah permit. In the case of Canadians, all firearms owner need a licence, are vetted by the RCMP and required to take a course before getting a licence. Why do I want a CCW permit? As a tourist travelling through the US I know that the bad guys will zero in on me and my family as they know we won’t be armed.
