    Lightbulb Traveling w\ CCW permit...

    Hi all, first post on your forum...very impressed with your numbers! I mostly frequent the Smith & Wesson Forum as well as The High Road, but will be visiting this site often...

    My wife & I have started taking about a road trip to see friends & relatives in Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, & Georgia next spring...As I started plotting out the gun laws through these states with my Utah (non-resident) permit, wouldn't it be cool to be able to use a CCW TRAVEL PLOTTER, kind of like using the online conversion calculators & language translators... I would pay a pretty reasonable fee to have my entire trip planned out considering my Utah Permit & my travel plans. I understand that there would be a heavy disclaimer, but that info would be priceless!

    Carry across the states

    This might be superfluous, but I will comment from experience, since I just got back from the southeast.

    NOTE: Since you live in Idaho and have a "non-resident Utah permit", that might be a problem for carry elsewhere.

    If your state has a reciprocal agreement with the states, generally you are OK in 99% of the cases. Laws on State Parks, etc. vary.

    When you pass through a state with "NO carry" laws, then when you leave your vehicle, your weapon must not be carried, obviously.

    Almost every state recognizes that when you are INside your vehicle traveling, that vehicle is your domain and you can carry a weapon with you for protection. Sometimes it is a sticky situation that might cause you a hassle if caught at a traffic stop, but extreme courtesy to the officer is 99% of the outcome. But years ago it did cost me $2,000 to be right in court. The judge got a big hunk of the LEO's butt.

    NOTE: Since you live in Idaho and have a "non-resident Utah permit", that might be a problem for carry elsewhere.
    It is fairly simple to research the particular states to find out their laws.

    YES, it would be great if someone had this readily available for us. Thanks.

    Just looked it up.
    Idaho has a carry permit law.
    Question every officer will ask is....... "Why don't YOU have a permit from your own home state?" hhhhmmmmmm?

    That could get you an expensive trial and a "tell it to the judge/jury."

    Interesting post above.....

    Everything I have read is real simple.... whether you are in a car or not, once you cross into another state's territory you are bound by their laws (CCW and all). Look up the various CCW statuates on this site and others... and always verify with the links provided to each state's actual Attorney General or official agnecy site for the most up to date information on CCW-ing.

    For example.... drive into Ohio.... the first words out of your mouth if stopped is "Hello Officer, I have a conceal carry permit and currently carrying a firearm. How would you like to me to proceed or do?" In Ohio, they have a very strict "MUST NOTIFY" rule... more so than some states... brush up!!!

    I live in Kansas and we do not have to notify... but I have chosen to do so if ever stopped (never have been)... and will always do so if travling out of state just in case I am in a state like Ohio and did not fully realize their "discloure rule".

    Your car may be your "mobile, just passing through domain".... but that is open for interpretation that I am not willing to risk!!

    Have fun on your trip.

    print your laws and carry with

    Note,

    I have my state's laws printed off the state police website and I carry them in my car, including the listing of reciprocal states.
    Can't hurt.

    Just don't forgot, an Idaho resident who is carrying on a Utah permit, the reciprocity has to be with Utah, reciprocity with Idaho has nothing to do with it.

    The answer to that is up here in North Idaho, we are a few minutes from Spokane Washington...which does not recognize Idaho's permit...REALLY?

    Yep, base everything on Utah's reciprocity.

    Not trying to be antagonistic; just logical after 40 years of doing this.
    Legal Question remains:

    Idaho has a carry permit law.
    Question every officer will ask is....... "Why don't YOU have a permit from your own home state?" hhhhmmmmmm?

    That could get you an expensive trial and a "tell it to the judge/jury."

    You might discover that "The neighboring city in the next state won't recognize an Idaho permit" is NOT a valid answer when you get to Georgia, etc.

    Do YOU want to be the "test case" at your own expense $$$$$$ ??

    Hey, 16 years ago it cost ME $2,000+ for the judge to say "not guilty", and then chew the arresting officer's butt out for wasting the court's time.
