Carrying out of state

Recommended Posts

Someone’s gotta have the skinny on carrying pistol outta state. 
We’re up and down the east coast and I’d like to be able to carry on trips going forward.

I recall yrs ago maybe it was Utah permit covered a ton of states?

not sure how accurate this is > https://www.usacarry.com/concealed-carry-permit-reciprocity-maps/

@Chef  and @Marion might know more. Years ago I got a New Hampshire permit so I could carry a ton of states. Of course, I never did- so, I just let it expire after 5 years and never renewed. I took a class and it was NH, Utah and maybe Florida? I only paid for NH

PA and Utah seem to be the ones that everyone in NY also go for. PA is easy due to proximity to NY and it's a quick process. Utah last time I checked into it the easiest way to get it was a class taught locally. Once you have those 2 states your covered for a large portion of the USA.

I have NY and PA.

Maryland is the PITA state that I can't carry in that I need to drive through.

 

South Carolina from what I read 

Law-Abiding Adults Can Now Carry Guns Openly in South Carolina After Governor Approves New Law. March 7, 2024, at 3:41 p.m. COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Any adult who can legally own a gun can now carry one openly in South Carolina

 

I think Maine, NH and VT none require state permits.

 

I am not a lawyer and do not stand behind any of this lol. Do your own research lol

Check the link Biz posted . It’s tricky and changes from time to time . 
We all got Fla and Utah back in the day because nobody honored NYS permit ,but those got you like 38 states . Then some states said they would not honor non resident permits ,which of course those two are .

Penn. was one state that said that and they became a block for most of my  travel so I got Penn too, it’s super easy.

I pass through Maryland and SC each year , this year SC wasn’t constitutional carry on my way down so two blocks .

Their are federal laws pertaining to bringing a handgun through those kind of states, the gun must be unloaded separate from the ammo ,locked up  no glove box or center council , it must be far away from you . Your journey must be uninterrupted, ie you  don’t spend the night . You also need to be legal at both ends of the trip .

Oh and just for fun, that’s an affirmative defense, meaning they can still arrest you and you can bring up that at your trail .

I have a Stop Box which suffices for the locked container. I generally don’t carry while driving it’s close by and I lock it up before those states .

 

Im and old guy in a Subaru, no gun or hunting stickers on it , and I’ve never been stopped out of state .

Oh and here’s a BIG OH, some state you have a duty to notify the cop of the gun !

Yes I research all this before my trips

Next winter I’ll have about a ten minute drive through Maryland where I’d have to unload etc . Other then that I review the states I have to notify the cop , any mag restrictions and so on, but being the same states each year it’s a two minute deal .

I don’t carry in Fla ,we’re on a barrier island of very low crime ,I like having it in the condo and for traveling back and forth ,and I have the opinion to carry if I feel the need . Some years when I brought a pocket pistol I did carry in different parts of Fla

Non resident Utah gets you 31 states I believe. PA opted out couple years ago. But quick drive to Erie sheriffs station and 5 minutes you’re good. Drove to Nashville and good in every state. NY does get you a few states in reciprocity

massive pain in the d*ck. I almost did the Florida Utah class but that doesn't really help you as much as it used to. aside from VT, NH, and ME northeastern states are a bunch of aholes. there's no reciprocity at all with anything once you get to Maryland and go north.
