  1. New Member Taking Extended Trip .....

    Howdy Y'all New member here from Florida.

    I have been carryin' cincealed for 8+ years now & have not had to use it its a real comfort & a added repsonsibility but Its the Real American Xpress card I never like to leave home with out it.

    I am in my mid forty's & a google search of my user name will show I am a classic car nut & tool aholic.

    I don't get out & about often & hardly ever leave the state but I will be going from florida to Penn for a extended stay to help out my mom.

    I will be driving my truck so my basic question & I figure its not a simple one is...

    What do I need to know about traveling thru them states?

    Please forgive me if I do not respond right away I have been in a battle with my PC.

    Thanks you all in advance for your responce.

    you can look at the map on the website that gives you an idea to where your permit is reciprocal or recognized. I know florida and VA have a reciprocal relationship, and all the states on the way down TO florida have a reciprocal relationship except for Georgia. In GA i would recommend unloading your firearm and keeping the gun in a case with the ammo in the trunk, thats generally the requirements for transporting a firearm. maryland is one of the harshest states for firearms laws and i would keep to the transportation scheme in that state as well. also double check bc im not aware about any restrictions for the type of ammo allowed in MA but i know in NJ hollow point bullets are illegal. use the tools on this page and you should be good. have a safe drive!

    If you have a Florida resident permit you're good all the way except for Maryland. Here in Georgia you should have no problems. If you don't have a permit the best thing to do is keep the gun locked up in the trunk. Have a good trip.

    Your permit is good in every state but Maryland. If you are going to western PA -or can use I-79 to get to where you want to go - go through West Virginia - no problems there.

    Check Handgunlaw.us for where you can carry, and deadly force rules. Keep in mind that not all states - including PA - have the Stand Your Ground/Castle Doctrine rules. Virginia requires that you open carry if you eat in a place where alcohol is served (that is true even if you have a permit).

    Two things:
    Why do people keep saying that Georgia doesn't recognize Florida's CWL? Every map or list I can find says they recognize both the Resident and Non-Resident permits.

    Why do people keep sending folks to other sites for information when that information is available on this website? (http://www.usacarry.com/concealed_ca...city_maps.html) BTW, LukeM, thanks for all your effort.
