    Delaware resident +NJ+MD=?

    I know that NJ and MD have some screwed up CC laws. I live in Wilmington Delaware and travel through PA, NJ and MD almost daily. I have applied for my florida non resident license which will allow me to carry in DE and PA. As far as I know MD only allows one to carry to and from a range, housing and similar instances. Since I am only going into the state to conduct business and come back do I need to dissarm myself put my pistol in the trunk stored away from my ammo in 2 seperate locked casses? Is this enough for LEO to see that I am legitmatly trying to abey the law even if I'm not in transit to the range ect... ect... I cannot drive home and leave my gun everytime I go to these states, that would be ludacris. What are my option here?

    Maryland is going to be a big problem for you. You can take your unloaded etc. weapon as long as you are legal to posess the weapon at the location you are going to. Also it has to be a direct trip. That means no stopping for lunch. That also means no visiting multiple clients. I imagine NJ is going to be similar, but even worse. If you should ever legally have reason to have your weapon in NJ make sure to check your ammo before you go. Hollow points are prohibited!

    I think I am going to apply for the Utah NON Res license, That will give me Delaware and its only $59. Plus looks like they are processing applications pretty fast compared to some states. Then I can apply for the Pennsylvania NON Res license which is $26 I think. The Florida license would cover both but costs $117. I currently have a Taxas Res CCW. I am wondering if there is a way I can just send them a copy of my license and they can send me a NON Res. But of course that would be to easy! All these options and still no NJ and MD!?!?

    De. wants me to publish my CCW in a local papar that is read by atleast 35% of the public in my community. And I have to write a letter explaining why I want a CCW AND... I will have to take another weapons training class. Then I would have to pay PA. $26 license fee to be able to carry in their state. I would rather just do it all online, send in the documents and bada boom bada bing. But the real reason I started the thread is to find out how I can travel from state to state legally even when the traveling I am doing has nothing to do with a gun smith, a range, a gun shop ect... Dumb laws!

    If applying for the PA permit, send it to the Centre County Sheriff. I hear he usually has a 1 week turn around and requires a copy of your current CCW license from your state

    A Florida NON-resident may not give you the rights to carry in DE. Being a resident, you may need a DE permit.

    I wondered about this as well. If You get pulled over by a LEO in DE he will ask You for Your Drivers License and if You got to produce Your Permit for any reason. Then the fun will begin.

    This is true of most states that issue. If you can get one in your state they won't honor an out of state non-resident.

    Florida carries this one step further, it appears they don't honor ANY non-resident permit (except their own)...... Probably because theirs provides so much revenue.

    But check the laws of the state you intend to carry in!!

    I dont really like the Delaware permit course of action if you will. I may just have to bite the bullet and do it. Damn! No hollow points in NJ?!?! Sigh... I mind as well just carry a baseball bat in my car to defend myself. Cant wait to move back to Texas!

    If a Florida non resident license may not let me carry in DE, even though it is recognized here, what would be the point of states having a NON resident license program? You will have to excuse my ignorance on the subject. But thank you for your insight.

    They might arrest You for that in NJ Be careful. When I drive thru NJ I watch for the Bears, I'll run 5 over. They love to give a hard time. Don't give Them a reason to get started.

    Hallow points are legal in NJ for legal purposes. Target shooting is fine. If you are forced to use a weapon and the shooting is found justifiable then using hallow points is fine. If the shooting is not justifiable, then you have to deal with the shooting plus using a hallow point.

    Since you are not a NJ resident, don't consider bringing a gun into NJ unless you can prove you are driving through (don't stop) or going to a NJ range. The weapon needs to be unloaded, locked in the trunk. If you get caught transporting in any other fashion expect to spend the next 7 years in one of our lovely vacation resorts.

    That is the way I understand the law here in DE.

    DE is very demanding no doubt, but if you meet the qualifications you will get your CCW

    DE is not so bad, there is a lot to offer in this area, also once you have your permit the rules are very limited. According to Gunny Hartman there are only two things.......

    The non resident allows people to visit FL and carry legally.

    Yea, I can think of somewhere else I would like to spend 7 years in a vacation resort, although I'm sure they have amazing views!
    DE requires me to have 5 refrences that say that I am not a "threat" and I need the weapon for self defense... I dont even know 5 people here. It just seems like a little over kill to me. Sorry I have to lash out at the technicalities when it comes to hand gun laws in these Eastern states.
