Utah is friendly.

I have to say UTAH also. Very few restrictions on places we can and can't carry. Carry at public schools, Colleges and Universities are no problem. Restaurant carry with alcohol, no problem. Recognized by the most states in the US. I like Utah.

Living in Texas, I wished the 30.06 laws were done away with, and a CHL holder could carry everywhere.

I love only that which they defend.
The Utah permits are selling aggressively in the Pacific Northwest.
Reading all of these posts, one question comes to mind. In those states where there is no permit required for CC, how liberal or restrictive are they in the use of deadly force? It occurred to me that the statutes regarding use of deadly force could be more restrictive where there is no requirement for permit. Does no permit equate to no training required either? Texas statutes have provision for use of deadly force for not only our person, but for property as well, and the protection of a third person for everyone CCL or not. Of course there are specific elements that need be in each of these scenarios. I heard a while back that there is a push for open carry here, but I have not confirmed that.
While some states are much better than others for ccw, I wouldn't move to one just because of the ccw laws.
Somebody mentioned California, probably meant as a joke, but in reality, once you get your California CCW, (Not as difficult as many think) there are very few restrictions on where you can carry. For example, you can carry in a bar or a restaurant that serves alcohol as long as you are not drinking. I have never seen a "no guns allowed" sign anywhere, except courthouses. Federal buildings and schools are off limits of course.
With all that said though, I will be moving to Texas when I retire in about 18 months. Texas gun laws are a part of the reason, but taxes, politics and cost of living are bigger factors.
How a politician stands on the Second Amendment tells you how he or she views you as an individual; as a trustworthy & productive citizen, or as part of an unruly crowd that needs to be lorded over, controlled, supervised and taken care of.
Alabama's pretty good - Only $20 a year for permit.

The only thing AK and VT have on Utah is CC without a permit. All other restrictions leave Utah as the MOST gun friendly state.
As others have said, CC in schools, (elementary, secondary, and colleges/universities), bars and restaraunts that serve alcohol, very OC friendly. "No gun" signs don't matter, and much more makes Utah the most gun friendly state.

My biggest complaint with Alaska is having to ask a homeowner if you can enter their house while armed.. Yes, it is their right to say no as private property owners, but still, having to ask permission???????? Out of sight, out of mind.....
it's cold and beautiful and no permit is required. Vermont without a doubt. God I love it here, mountains, skiing, tons of mom and pop shops, and lots of offroad Jeep trails
Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.
