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.

If you need to reset the map and start over, just click on the Clear Map button.

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.

Need to update for Wyoming:
As of July 1, 2021, permitless concealed carry is legal for any legal resident of the U.S. who is 21 years old or older, and who may lawfully possess a firearm.
See: https://wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2021/HB0116

From WI. Plan to travel through IL in Sept. They do not honor my permit. What can I do to legally travel through that state?

When I click on the above map it tells me IL will not honor my WI permit.

You could get a non-resident CCW

Hi. I’m a NYS (not city) resident and pistol concealed carry permit holder. I thought I would be able to carry in Maine because I thought Maine is a constitutional carry and permit-less and open carry state. Is that only for residents of Maine? I used the USCCA app (see pic) and it said my NYS permit would be ok with some restrictions in Maine. Just looking for clarity.

Given the recent SCOTUS ruling, shouldn’t they all be Blue?

I just wanted to say thank you for creating such an amazing and helpful page! Because of you and your awesome work, I was able to plan my road trip and know where I had the right to carry, and where I had to lock my gun in my trunk.

I always thought that New Mexico would honor my permit, and I was glad I found out from your website, rather than a police officer, that my Utah non-resident license was not valid in that state!

Thank you so much, and keep up the amazing work!

I am not quite sharp enough to understand the difference between the yellow and green when I click “permits honored by states” then click Colorado. Yellow says Colorado Honors Resident Permits Only from these States, and green says Colorado Honors All Resident Permits from these States. Can anyone tune me up on this? Thanks.

I saw a notice effective 7/1/22 that states Florida permits are honored by NV. Is this something that will be verified and updated on the site soon?

It appears that Hawaii is now shall-issue, but only for concealed carry. Open carry is still may-issue.

You need to update Georgia. They accept all other states now.

Jennifer Sensiba

It might be a good idea to differentiate residents-only constitutional carry and general constitutional carry separately from resident and non-resident permits.
