Difference Between Concealed Carry Recognition and Reciprocity
Some states have reciprocity agreements with other states which means each state honors the other state’s concealed carry permit.
Example of concealed carry reciprocity between two states: State A accepts State B’s concealed carry permit holders to carry in State A and State B accepts State A’s concealed carry permit holders to carry in State B.
There are also some cases where State A will accept State C’s concealed carry permit holders but State C WILL NOT accept State A’s concealed carry permit holders. This is NOT reciprocity.
The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Maps above will show you:
Map 1 – States That Honor My Permit(s):
The first screen on this map shows whether a state is Shall Issue, May Issue, or Right Denied.
Shall Issue: States that are Shall Issue will issue any private citizen a concealed weapons permit as long as they meet all requirements.
May Issue: States that are May Issue have the authority to make the judgment on whether or not they want to issue a concealed weapons permit to a private citizen even after they have met all requirements.
Right Denied: States that are Right Denied DO NOT allow private citizens to carry handguns and do not issue concealed weapon permits.
To view which states accept your concealed weapons permit, just click on the state your permit is issued in. If you have multiple permits, start with your Resident Permit (The permit issued in the state you live in).
You may be asked if your concealed weapons permit is a Resident or Non-Resident permit. Some states issue permits to Residents of their state as well as Non-Residents. On the other hand, some states ONLY issue to Residents of their state. And to take it one step further, some states only allow permits issued to Residents of the states they have reciprocity with. This is what the yellow state color means on the map.

Map 2 – Permits Honored by State
This map is a quick way to find out what state concealed carry permits a particular state allows. Just click on a state, and any states that are blue are allowed within the selected state, red are not allowed, and yellow means only residents of that state that have permits are allowed.
