to look into getting out of state CCW permits ? I live in Iowa and have had my CCW here since 1992 however I travel frequently to Nebraska and South Dakota . I know both states have CCW permits for residents however I dont know about out of staters . Would very much prefer to be legal when i cross state lines without having to stop ...unloa my weapon and make it in accessible to me .....thats no better than leaving the gun at home.

Any body have any idea where to start? Local level ?? State level ?? :hairpull:

First thing I would do is check out their general statutes, most states will recognize other states CCW permits. Its a shame that packing.org is shut down.

There is another website that talks about CCW but I don't remember what it is.

Looks like SD will honor your Iowa permit but Nebraska doesn't

Of course it looks like Nebraska doesn't honor anybody's permit.

You need to find out which states have permits for non residents. The two states named may not. I know Florida and utah both have permits for non residents and in fact I have a florida permit and no arkansas one even though I live in arkansas. The florida permit covers more states than the arkansas one, including arkansa. So I would check and see if either of those cover those two states. If you are a veteran Florida accepts your dd-214 for training.

thanks gottripletsNC the link answers all the question i have now ... i can carry in So. Dak but Nebraska apparently wont let ANYONE carry lol ... and seems as if they would prefer that even their residents who can AFFORD the ccw dont carry lol .... what a tighta$$ed state ...sheesh ...However in nebraskas defense (sort of ) the residents fought for many years to even GET a ccw option only getting it through a handful of years ago IIRC and hopefully the rules and regs will eventuially expand making nonresidence carry easier for those of us looking for the right and legal option

First, I agree with gottripletsNC. http://www.handgunlaw.us/ is a useful resource.

In addition, you might want to get a Utah or a Florida permits. In fact, why not get both? Of course there may not be any good reason to get both. One of the two is probably sufficient. But I believe "the more CCWs the merrier."

Florida is easier if you already have something they consider acceptable proof of competency. You can order the application packet online (http://licgweb.doacs.state.fl.us/weapons/index.html). One thing about Florida, however, is that you must get your fingerprints taken by a law enforcement agency.

For Utah, you must be certified by a Utah approved instructor. However, there are many outside of Utah. See http://bci.utah.gov/CFP/CFPHome.html for more information and a listing, by state, of Utah approved instructors. You can download the necessary forms from that website.

It looks like Utah is good in a couple more states: Washington and Minnesota. But it also looks like Nebraska doesn't recognize any permit.
