    if you have all those permits you can conceal carry your weapons on a good portion of your trip, the places you could not carry your guns on you is NJ, MD and SC (assuming travel on I95), noticing you PA travel I don't want to get into this too deep but I believe your FLA permit will cover you there, the "ban" on fla permits is only for PA residents using a FLA permit to circumvent the PA permitting process.
    But I am not a lawyer nor an expert on all northern gun laws

    you can drive through SC w/ a loaded pistol as long as it is behind a latched storage, ie glove box, center console, etc. this is w/o any permit.

    Why? FOPA requires both the unloaded gun and the ammunition to be in a locked container or compartment separate from the occupants of the vehicle. Washington state law only requires the gun to be unloaded and not concealed on the person. So why "make sure" you are travelling per FOPA guidelines in WA? I would rather have the unloaded gun in the center console, glove box, door pocket with a loaded magazine readily available in Washington..... IMHO. Once the person exits the vehicle, they can load the gun and open carry in Washington, if they wish.

    I've seen and read about cop's giving a person a hard time with CCP even though it's perfectly lawful to carry. I've only been stopped twice while carrying and although I didn't need to inform the officer I was carrying, while I kept my hands on the steering wheel in plain sight, I comely informed the officer that I was carrying and had a permit to carry. Both times the officer thanked me and after a few moments I was on my way. You never know what kind of policeman you'll come up against, but I've found that if you keep calm and courteous, everything will go fine.

    Other people have found exactly the opposite.

    Obey applicable law. If you do, it doesn't matter what the cop does or doesn't like.

    THe PA change affects ALL non-resident FL permits. PA will only honor a FL permit issued to a FL resident. However, while driving thru PA a permit from ANY state, regardless of reciprocity, is sufficient.
