Traveling With Your Gun? Download your State’s CCW Reciprocity Map

These days it’s easier than ever to travel long distances and cross state lines. Many of us have to do it often, either for job or family. And for those of us who carry concealed, it can be quite a headache wondering what state will allow your permit. Furthermore, not knowing could land you in trouble with the law.

That’s why we have developed this handy Concealed Carry Reciprocity Map so that you can know easily figure out what states you can visit with your permit and what states might need additional credentials.

Today we’re going to go through the simple process of finding out this information and downloading the map itself for your own personal knowledge.

STEP 1: Go to our Concealed Carry Reciprocity Map.


When you go to the link, scroll down slightly, and you should see a map like this. You will see a small drop-down by “Resident Permit” that will list the 50 states below the map. From there, you select the state you are a resident of. I am from Colorado, so I chose that.

From there, you will click “Show Map.” 

STEP 2: Look at what states accept your concealed carry permit

You will then be able to see all of the states that you can visit with your resident permit in green, while the red may require additional state licensure. Luckily, if you have additional state credentials, you can scroll down a little further on the page and…

STEP 3: Add non-resident permits.

I used Florida as an additional example here. All you have to do is check the box next to the state you have a non-resident permit, and click “Show Map” again, and you will see a new map showing the additional states that the extra permit would allow you to carry concealed now.

STEP 4: Download the map.

    I paid for the digital conceal carry state. And can’t find it

    Thanks for providing totally free and very easy access to this information. There are many other sites who purport to offer this in an ad, and then they hit you up with a long and drawn out solicitation to pay and sign a up for this or that! And to add further insult, they don’t even offer a map such as yours!

    Thank you again my friend for being true to your word, and for providing exactly what your article said it would.

    All I wanted was a map of where I could carry. Can’t get your map to work . Can’t change states where I live and where I have nonresident permit

      Can you describe the issue you’re having? I tried the map on several devices and it’s working as designed. Perhaps you’re trying to click on the photos of the map embedded in the post instead of the link at the bottom of the post?
