What non-resident permits do you have? How many more states does the additional permit(s) give you?

Not sure? Check out the USCCA Concealed Carry Reciprocity Map


Michigan CPL is not honored in 10 states plus DC. Having a non resident Arizona CPL doesn’t give me any extra places to carry.


Arizona’s Carry permit is honored in some 38 states last time I checked.


Missouri gets me 37 … Going to add UT and VA non resident and that pick up two more.

My Kentucky CCDW has reciprocity in 36 states. My LEOSA license is recognized in all 50 states.

Isn’t Hawaii trying to exclude themselves from being required to honor LEOSA.


They are trying and, if I were going to Hawaii, I would have to seriously consider whether I travel with a weapon because of their crazy gun laws. BUT, there is no question that LEOSA applies in all 50 states and US territories and supersedes state law.
There are similar issues in other states. Some states interpret LEOSA as to allowing only carrying the weapon you qualify with annually. NJ has an hollow point restriction ($1000 fine per cartridge) and even though LEOSA says ANY ammo legal under federal law is allowed, NJ says no. CA and other states have magazine capacity bans which they still enforce.

The key is to understand every states restrictions before you cross the state line.


Illinois license gets me 30 states.
