I've taken the list of states that recognize the permits of those states that issue non-resident permits. In addition to Virginia, it looks to me like I will add the most states if I apply for a Florida non-resident. If I then add the Utah non-resident, I get a couple more states, but I don't know if it is worth the cost. What have you done to optimize your concealed carry across the country, if anything?

I carry a resident Nevada, non-resident Utah and non-resident New Hampshire. By last count that makes me legal in 32 states.

That NRA link needs some updating. 2 more states now have RTC leaving just 2 that have no issue.

Back to the orginal question, I got PA only. The only other permit that would be of any use is FL or UT which would add Delaware and Ohio. But since I travel there infrequently I'll do w/o the added costs. (PA permit is $19:danceban: ) PA is recongnized in something like 18 other states.

Yes, another 10 states have "may issue", leaving only Wisconsin and Illinois that have no provisions for concealed carry by citizens.

Hawaii? I thought you couldn't even own a handgun in Hawaii.

How can a state be considered shall issue if they don't issue?

500 mag - that price is IIRC the old one - what I paid. My wife got hers a year ago and now I think it is $25 or $26 - but you finish up with a DL type card - with si milar photo ID.

I checked the reciprocity recently for PA before leaving for OK - was surprised to find a few extras I had not known about. Yes seems to 18 - and with an FL another six added.

For my limited travels this works pretty well for me.

I'll attach a real simple text file - I listed the PA reciprocal states then added in FL ones too - to see the extra more clearly. I stress, it is basic!

Only need the One

I only have AZ and it is good in every state I work in. As well, it is good in every state I have to pass through to see the Grandkids as well as the state they live in. So, the one works for me!!


As for Hawaii, they will issue when they freeze over. That will be 2 hours after Hell
