    Concealed Carry across state lines ??

    I have a Maine Concealed Carry Permit, and will soon be taking the Utah course to be permitted in other states also.
    What is the proper procedure to carry across any state that doesn't acknowledge these permits ?? (like my next door neighbor N.H.)
    Trying to plan ahead and not stumble on any difficult times while traveling....

    Thanks for any helpful info thats available......

    RI doesn't recognise any other state's CCW permits. None. Even a loaded mag is counted as a "loaded gun" here, and having a weapon in the car unless you are going from home to work (if you're allowed to carry there) or from home to the range or back then you may not have a weapon in the car.

    Kinda restrictive, but there it is. Since I only shoot at a range, it's not a problem unless the wife says "Can you pick me up something on the way home?" Legally, no. Weapon in the car even if locked is a big No-no.

    Sounds like RI is one of the places I'll never visit. How in the world can they enact such laws and not infringe on the right to keep and bear arms ? It's beyond the comprehension of this old country boy.

    You get used to it, and having grown up in the even-more-restrictive UK it feels quite permissive here.

    In other words, it works for me, but it isn't for everyone.

    According to the "Firearms Owners Protection Act of 1986":
    One of the law's provisions was that persons traveling from one place to another cannot be incarcerated for a firearms offense in a state that has strict gun control laws if the traveler is just passing through (short stops for food and gas), provided that the firearms and ammunition are not immediately accessible, that the firearms are unloaded and, in the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver’s compartment, the firearms are located in a locked container.[11]

    Under this provision, someone driving from Virginia to a competition in Vermont with a locked hard case containing an unloaded handgun and a box of ammunition in the trunk could not be prosecuted in New Jersey or New York City for illegal possession of a handgun provided that the individual did not stop in New Jersey or New York for an extended period of time.

    See 18 USC 926A http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/926A
    You must also meet your home state's legal requirement for the possession of the firearm and also in your final destination.

    Did you know you can get a NH Non-Resident Permit for $100 good for 4 years. I got one just in case I travel north.

    Disclaimer; It is up to you to verify any state law but this is a good starting point.
