can i travel from my home in nys to my place in arizonia, taking all my weapons with me cross country? I realize that my nys ccw is not honored anywhere else, but if all are locked in a case and going from point A to B will i have any legal problems.

Search some of the gun law sites - someone might post them. There are federal laws about travel and sites that show reciprocity. Some do honor the NYS permit.

Kind of busy now to list all that stuff - it is easily found.

Your New York carry permit is honored in Utah.

Here is the federal law that allows you to transport firearms interstate:
Notwithstanding any other provision of any law or any rule or regulation of a State or any political subdivision thereof, any person who is not otherwise prohibited by this chapter from transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful purpose from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to any other place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during such transportation the firearm is unloaded, and neither the firearm nor any ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the passenger compartment of such transporting vehicle: Provided, That in the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver’s compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console.

Your NYS CCL is also honored in Indiana as this state honors all other states' CCL's.

Assuming your leaving NYS for good. Once you get to Arizona your going to need to develop a whole different attitude toward gun laws.
