FL, NH, NY and PA. These get me to most of the places I want to be.
I have my state of residence permit which is Florida and I also have a non-resident permit from Pennsylvania. I'm debating adding Utah although I don't think it will gain me anything? I'm also considering adding Maine and Connecticut to Non-resident permits as well.

I have a PA LTCF (Resident), which is recognized in PA and 25 other states, plus a UT CFP, which gains me recognition in 8 additional states (2 of which I go to quite regularly).

West Virginia (State of residence)
Pennsylvania ( I don't need it but spend lots of time there and it is only $27. I believe it is best to have a permit from the state you spend a lot of time in if possible
Massachusetts (I gave this one up last year as it is to expensive and to much trouble to obtain.)
Arizona I had a non resident permit from here before they started honoring all other states permits. Only way you could get legal there.
I was also making plans to get a Nevada non resident permit before they started honoring other states permits. My Utah and Florida permits covered it so I dropped my plans. Then they dropped Utah and Florida but got lucky and they added West Virginia so I was still legal there.
I also missed out on getting a Washington permit by mail. They use to do it but stopped and they sent my application back saying they no longer accepted applications by mail. I think I would have had to drop it at renewal time any ways as they started making you show up to fill out the application and by then they started honoring other states.
The most states I have been legal in at one time is 39 which is today. I dropped MA before NE was added to my list of states I was legal in. The Max # of states I can be legal in is 40.
The max states anyone can get legal in is 43. If you lived in California and had a business in Rhode Island you could pick up California Oregon and Rhode Island. As Oregon will issue non resident permits to residents of state that boarder them. If you have a business in RI you can get a non resident permit there.
If anyone would have told me just ten years ago (1999) I would be legal to carry in 40 states years in 2009 I would have laughed at them. I would have told them they were dreaming.

West Virginia resident permit.

That about covers most of the states where I need to go. The NH permit allows me to CC in Georgia and Alabama. They do not have reciprocity with us yet.
