    This summer my wife and I, both CCW holders will be traveling from Ohio to Florida and then on another trip from Ohio to Texas. Since we both carry I want to get CCW licenses that have reciprocity to cover the states we will be traveling through. Is there one state that we can get our license from that will cover all of the states we will be traveling through. Would prefer to do this online if possible.

    Thanks for any help you can give me in this matter.

    Utah honors the most, but Flordia only honors a Utah Resident permit.

    A Flordia permit might be your best option. Click on the link.

    If you are wrong- or take the wrong advice - then just be prepared for possible felony charges- time in jail and thousands of dollars of fines and legal costs

    The last place you want to ask that question is online and the last place you want to look for advice are websites offering it. The downside is so great.

    You have to get this exactly right - and hope the law doesnt change after you start your trip

    Possession is a crime that doesnt require intent.

    Regards from Iowa

    Someone posted a thread a while back about,"What freedoms have you lost" here is a perfect example of a LOST FREEDOM!!

    There should NO NEED for reciprocity!! PERIOD!!

    AS a US citizen and my state issues me a CCP, ALL state should be "required" to HONOR it!! end of story!!

    When you got your CCW you should of recieved a book with all of the states and their limitations ... If you didn't get that inquire of the place where you got the CCW, its part of the classes ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Taking a book such as WPT mentions or quoting your CCW instructor or a website guru will have absolutely no effect on the outcome of a criminal charge should you be arrested and find yourself in a courtroom in another state.

    Roger along with ohio a utah non res would get you there. Although there are many states that will recognize the Utah concealed firearm permit, the State of Utah has formal reciprocity (written agreement) with the following states (Click on the name of the state for further information):
    •Alabama
    •Alaska
    •Colorado
    •Florida
    •Georgia
    •Louisiana
    •Mississippi
    •New Hampshire
    •North Carolina
    •North Dakota
    •Ohio
    •South Dakota
    •Texas
    •Virginia
    •Washington State
    •West Virginia

    Roger,

    While I completely agree with timberfaller, I think Gene is giving you some good advice. What all those responding to your post failed to ask however was if you are SURE you want to get into a car and travel for several days with Jane knowing full well she is armed! My advice to you would be to NOT TICK HER OFF! Oh yeah, and make sure to tell her I am just kidding, sort of.


    Have fun,

    DuckDog

    Unless I missed something......Flordia does NOT recognize Non-resident permits.
    That is why from Ohio to FL. or Ohio to Texas, a non-resident FL. Along with your Ohio resident, would be best for you.

    Avoid Illinois like the plague. I`m sure you know that anyway, and it was not on your route.

    Agree with Gene, internet advice isn`t always correct.

    Best advice, leave side arms at home.

    Listen to Gold Medal. When you take that trip from Ohio to Texas do not take I70 or I64 through IL! You're safe in Indiana on those roads but head south and go through KY or TN on your way west.

    Just took Ohio course this last weekend and the different state laws was a subject of much debate and discussion. We looked into Georgia laws and our thinking is that you can carry in your vehicle in Georgia, but not out of vehicle unless you have a Georgia or reciprical state permit. Also according to Florida Dept of Agriculture website, Florida and Ohio are reciprical. Some states will not accept an out of state permit unless you are resident of the issuing state. Our instructor said before we travel we need to check each state on our path. This should be done by checking current Attorney General or governing bodies of each state. These laws are constantly changing so a current check needs to be done. To sum it up check it out yourself, second hand info is no good. What I wrote is just my understanding of the laws.

    Because you posted on a public forum, you're going to get public comment. Well, here's mine: Leave the guns at home, take the wife out for a nice dinner and drinks, enjoy your vacation without worrying about your sidearms or the changing requirements depending on geographic locations.
