Thread: CCW valid in most states

    CCW valid in most states

    I live in Ohio and have a CCW in Ohio. Can I get a permit in another state that would allow me to carry in most states? I am mostly interested in the states that border Ohio but more would be better. If I got one from IN, that should cover what I am after, correct?

  3. Look at PA

    PA is a good choice. With Ohio and PA you can carry in 33 states. PA uses your Ohio CCW permit to qualify you for their permit and it is only $25.

    That's the route I went. A bit of paperwork to fill out, but about a week later I had my PA permit in hand. I believe it was the Centreville Sheriff's Office that I went through?

    Thank you! No additional tests or classroom?

    I live in Indiana and have that CCW permit. I took a class to get my Utah Non-resident CCW so that I could carry in more states, including Ohio. Indiana recognizes Ohio's permit, but Ohio does not recognize Indiana's, so that is why I got the Utah CCW. Refer to the maps that are on the home page and click in the states that you have permits for, and it will tell you what states you can carry in.

    Do you fill out the same application online as a resident of another state does? Indiana asks about your residence of Indiana and I didn't want to fill it out improperly. I clicked IN and PA, PA doesn't include Alabama or Mississippi so I figured IN was a better choice.

    In order to get a non-res IN you have to work in IN.

    I would suggest Arizona...$60...your OH permit will suffice for the training requirement...Reciprocity is awesome. You can get it thru the mail....in about 2 weeks.

    Call or email them...they'll send you a app packet

    It doesn't look like an out of state permit will fulfill the training requirement.
    I pulled this off the Arizona website, following the link you provided.
    Damn I wish it did.

    Note:

    * All changes of address and phone numbers must be reported in writing to the CWPU within 10 days of the change. Utilize the 'Change, Error or Non-Receipt of Permit Form' available under printable forms on this web page.
    * All training for an AZ CCW permit MUST be conducted within the borders of the state of Arizona.

    The website hasn't been updated fully yet. I pointed that out to them back in November...they said they'd "take care of that".

    The constitutional carry bill that passed last year added these training options:

    See #7

    N. An applicant shall demonstrate competence with a firearm through any of the following:

    1. Completion of any firearms training program that is approved by the department of public safety and that is conducted by instructors who are authorized by the department of public safety or who possess current national rifle association instructor certifications in pistol and personal protection and who submit to a background investigation, including a check for warrants and a criminal history records check.

    2. Completion of any firearms safety or training course or class that is available to the general public, that is offered by a law enforcement agency, a junior college, a college or a private or public institution, academy, organization or firearms training school and that is approved by the department of public safety.

    3. Completion of any hunter education or hunter safety course approved by the Arizona game and fish department or a similar agency of another state.

    4. Completion of any national rifle association firearms safety or training course.

    5. Completion of any law enforcement firearms safety or training course or class that is offered for security guards, investigators, special deputies or other divisions or subdivisions of law enforcement or security enforcement and that is approved by the department of public safety.

    6. Evidence of current military service or proof of honorable discharge or general discharge under honorable conditions from the United States armed forces.

    7. A valid current or expired concealed weapon, firearm or handgun permit or license that is issued by another state or a political subdivision of another state and that has a training or testing requirement for initial issuance.

    8. Completion of any governmental police agency firearms training course and qualification to carry a firearm in the course of normal police duties.

    9. Completion of any other firearms training that the department of public safety deems acceptable.
    I got mine using an NRA Basic that I took here in PA

    Thanks for the clarification, I just asked for the application packet.
