Thread: NY permit holder looking to add other states

  1. NY permit holder looking to add other states

    I have had my NY CCW permit for a while now, and am looking to add more "coverage"
    I travel alot, and might be moving to colorado soon, so I am researching other states non resident permits to add to it.

    I looked at utah, and florida, those are the most popular of course, but what other states are good too? Price wise and renewal time frame.

    Depends on where you plan to travel. Best bang for the buck would be the Floida one as that gives you, I believe, around 30 States. I think they have new rules for the Utah non-resident now that makes it more difficult.

    I live in NY and have that CCW and then added PA and CT. Then got the Florida one and don't need the PA one renewed now as that's included in the FL. We travel more on the east than west coast, so the Florida one made more sense.

    I have New York. I added PA (if you go to PA, get one there as the Philadelphia PD will only honor a PA permit even though that action is against the law, you don't need the hassle). I added VA, FL, CT, NH, ME, MA and NV. While VA, PA and FL are redundant in many states, I didn't want to bother chasing changing reciprocity laws if they indeed change.

    This leaves RI, NJ, MD, SC, OR, CA, WI, IL and DC as the non-carry states. This us the best you can do with a NY CCW. RI, MD and NJ state they are
    May issue to non-residents but they do not issue. CO and SC are resident reciprocity issues as is OR that can't be resolved. WI is coming around but still not there and the last three (IL, CA and DC) are communist states that we can forget trying in. (Yes, I know DC isn't a state before someone points that out).

    The only suggestion on top of this is to get a NJ FID card as this will let you possess your gun but not carry it in NJ. You can then fly out of Newark legally with the weapon as the NYC airports are off limits. It is easy to get a FID card as a non resident of NJ, but it will take 6 months and a few hundred bucks.

    FL is your best bet. Unless you need the NE states you'd need to get one from each and every one.

    NH is a good one - gives you 13 more states, is cheap, can apply by mail, good for four years and only takes 4-5 weeks to secure.

    So how much do you pay to renew all those permits and how often?

    Arizona will get you almost identical coverage to FL at about half the cost. It is $60 for initial 5 yrs and $43 for renewals. Your NY permit will suffice for the training requirement, you can get it thru the mail with turn around time averaging about 2 weeks.

    I didn't realize MA issued non resident permits, but i was interested. But looking it up i see that its 100 bucks a year. Not worth it for my 1 or 2 trips a year. I have my NY permit and rarely leave the state as it is, so paying for permits and renewing all the time isn't worht the hassle for me.

    I've got a NH permit, which for me is good since I got to NH, but for an NY resident you leave a big gap on the east coast. FL still the best bet if you go up and down 95 a lot. You would THINK the east coast commie states (MA,NY,NJ,MD) would at least have reciprocity with each other if nobody else.

    It costs a good bit. MA is $100 per year and the others are renewed every 4 or 5 years and range from a low of $35 to a high of $90 each. Not bad. I figured it out and it's about $225 per year to carry. Not as cheap as driving, but it is worth it IMHO. It's critical to take advantage of opportunities to exercise my right to a firearm in as many states as possible, lest the right be denied. If more were available by mail, I would apply as the more who apply, the harder it is to remove the programs as they are vital revenue streams for the issuing entities. I am lucky enough to be able to afford this and "contribute" to the cause in this way.
