What do you do driving though the states that do not take my CCW permit
I avoid trevelling through states that do not have reciprocity with my state's CHL permit. I also have a NH non-resident permit which extends the reciprocity to additional states. If you check the website referenced in the reply above, you will find which additional state's CHL/CCW permits are recognized in your state or the states in wich you may be travelling.
Hint--Florida, Utah and New Hampshire non-resident CHL permits seem to provide a lot of bang for the buck...
