    Hey everyone. Let me start by saying that the title to this thread is awful. I didn't know what to call it. I'll explain what I'm talking about.

    As someone new to concealed carry, I have been doing my research into the different permits available to me here in Virginia. Obviously there's the VA resident CHP. That's a given. I'm getting that one. :cool:

    Past that, there are the other states non-resident CCW/CHP/CWP/whatever they call it. It seems that the big two are Florida and Utah. Those get you the most states for your buck. I had been trying to figure out which one to get, or if I needed both, or if VA was going to cover me.

    What I did is, I put together a spreadsheet (nerd alert) that listed all of the states that those permits would allow me to carry in and compared them side-by-side. I figured out that, for me, I'm going to be set with the VA and the FL. I really don't need the 2 or 3 extra states that the Utah permit would allow me.

    I figued I would share this information, as there are probably others out there in a similar situation. Hopefully you guys find this as helpfull as I did. I thought it helped to be able to look at all three of them side by side to determine if it's worth the time and expense to get a permit that in reality is only going to add the ability to carry in Minnesota (for example)...

    Anyway, the file is attached. If you find it usefull, post and let me know. It's good for the ol' ego. :supergrin:

    As noted, VA resident permit gets you Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia.

    Perhaps the easiest non-res permit to obtain (simple application + $20) is New Hampshire. That plus your VA permit will get you: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wyoming.

    So, for $20 and about a two week turnaround, you get an additional five states, totaling 30.

    Adding Florida will get you to 32. Adding Utah will get you to 34 states.

    My understanding is, in Maryland, you don't get a permit unless you know someone and/or are really well connected. They are, in practice, a "No Issue" state. :upeyes:

    how accurate is that map on the usacarry site? On the NRA site for reciprocity, it doesnt show that South Carolina is on the reciprocity list for VA resident CCW holders, but on the usa carry site it shows that South Carolina has reciprocity with VA? is this new state added to VA's list? Can anyone confirm this? Thanks.

    btw nerbs, you need to add Idaho to the VA column. and add Colorado to the UTAH column.

  11. Unless you have some strong employment reason (and then I believe you are only allowed to carry while employed) MD is pretty much non issue for non-residents. Even for residents it is almost impossible to get a permit.
