Check your states RECIPROCITY with others. It may even be in your favor to get a CCWP in the state you're currently in. For example an Arkansas permit is recognized by 31 states while a New Hampshire permit is recognized by 22. So I (AR permit) can carry in more states than my friend (NH permit). BUT even though another state will recognize your permit, DOES NOT mean the laws of your issuing state are the same. Each state has their own rules on how and where to carry. It becomes your responsibility to know the state laws. Hope this helped!
