    Why two states’ permits are such hot tickets for concealed-carry crowd

  3. Utah & Florida are two of the best permits out there. At last count they were valid in 33 & 31 States, respectively. Neither are valid in Nevada which has been a business killer since they dropped the Utah permit last year. Hopefully they will reconsider when they do their assessment this year.
    I have traveled all over the country to teach the Utah BCI class. Most people opt for the Utah over Florida due to class time (4 hours vs. all day) and the fees to the State ($65 vs. $200+/-), but a few want both so we teach both courses.

  4. I got the Florida "hot ticket" but the Utah I would have to take their course. None of my other qualifications will work with Utah.

  5. I got the Florida, New Hampshire, and Virginia "hot tickets" but the Utah I would have to take their course. None of my other qualifications will work with Utah.

    Because NY doesn't reciprocal gun laws with any state and the other state don't have reciprocal laws with them. So if I want to go outside of NY then I have to leave my weapon at home in NY.

    Talk about a bias report! This so called news article had numerous quotes from anti's and only one or two pro 2A comments and you had to wade through the whole article to find them. Just what you'd expect from msnbc.com.

    You have to be careful of the "33 reciprocal" number because some states do not recognise the non-resident permits.

    The "Big 3", IMO would be Florida, Utah and Nevada. With FL, you get a whole bunch of states as well as the state of FL if you're not a resident of UT. The state of UT will give you everything that the state of FL does with the addition of WA. The state of NV does not recognize the UT CFP or FL CWL, so if you're a frequent traveler to NV, that would be another permit to maintain.

    With the above listed permits, assuming you're not a resident of FL, UT or NV, you will be good in approx. 30 different states at this point in time. I advise my students to get and maintain as many CC licenses/permits as they can afford. State laws constantly change. What may be good today, might not be good when you need it 6 months from now. Having a wide range of options increases the probability that you will have a CC permit/license will work in a particular state you're planning to visit.

    Check the state laws BEFORE traveling. Be sure that you understand the law and know what is and what isn't allowed. Finding out "street side" from a LEO isn't the way you want things to go down.

  10. What about a MO CCW? At last count I believe we had reciprocity w/30+ states

    But MO only does resident permits, but is the most recognized now.
    Glad I have my MO permit.
