    I turned 60 yesterday. I'm a disabled ER nurse with infinite respect for the carp that LEO's tolerate. Polymyositis has made me too weak to do much, which is the reason I chose to protect myself with a Texas CCL and Glock 19. Handicap license plates suggest an easy victim. In my younger days I was robbed by junkies while I was on crutches.

    Problem is, all my family is in Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire. I feel the need to move near family, but dread the thought of driving 2500 miles without quick access to my weapon. This would put me in violation of the laws for interstate transport of guns.

    Going home with all I own in my car, obeying traffic laws (well, maybe 5 MPH over so I don't get rear ended) am I really going to end up in prison should an encounter with a LEO occur? I worked in The NM Dept of "Corrections" and know I wouldn't last long incarcerated.

    If you have a Texas CCW license, reciprocity agreements will carry you all the way to the Maryland border before you are breaking any laws. That is if you take I10 to I20 to I30 to I40 to I81. Another 15 miles through a thin strip of Maryland will take you into Pennsylvania, when you will be legal again. After that, Vermont honors the Texas permit as well, but every other state north of Pennsylvania doesn't.

    This is not a bad place to ask this question, but since you are talking about a pretty serious subject... I'd suggest calling a law enforcement agency in the areas where you plan to travel to ask about this scenario. State Police should know, if you plan on traveling mostly interstate.
