Concealed Carry Q&A Digest – Feb 26, 2018

Concealed Carry Digest: You Asked - We Answer

We get asked a lot of questions, and it’s only fair that we attempt to answer them. Questions with longer answers often become articles and sometimes we even get some USA Carry Readers to submit their answers. This article is for all the questions that didn’t need their own article. Click here to view all of our Concealed Carry Q&A Digest articles.

I have a concealed carry permit in Illinois can I carry legally in Iowa or Missouri ??

Does Wisconsin recognize a Nevada CCW and, if so, if I obey their laws can I carry with impunity?

We got quite a few questions this week asking whether or not certain states accepted other state’s permits or licenses. These readers might not have been aware that we have our Concealed Carry Reciprocity Maps that show this. Just remember that you need to obey the laws of the state you are carrying in, not the laws of the state that issued you a permit or license. Each state has different laws so make sure you read up on the state you plan to visit.

Hi, I recently moved to Oklahoma from Missouri. I took a conceal carry class back in 2009 or 2010 when I lived in Kansas and was issued a permit to conceal carry. Then as you know, Kansas didn’t require a permit to carry, so I never renewed my permit. I have since divorced and moved a few times. My question is, do I have to retake the class all over again in Oklahoma to get a permit to conceal carry, or do you honor the fact that I already passed the course in Kansas? Thank you for any feedback!

Oklahoma requires that you supply an original signed training certificate indicating handgun authorized to carry or an original signed exemption certificate, both of which need to be issued in the past three years. You will need to take a firearms safety and training class from a certified gun safety instructor.

You can find a list of Oklahoma Certified Gun Safety Instructors here.

In Texas, if I am pulled over I must give the officer my License to Carry and/or let him know I have an LTC.

If I travel to state X which does not have the obligation to inform the officer for their ‘permit’ carriers…what do I do. Follow my Texas requirement or the local requirement?

I am no lawyer, but, whenever you enter another state, you must follow their laws.
As always, keep them coming. Have a great week and keep carrying concealed! If you have any questions for us fill out the form below and we will try to get to it in the next digest.
