The permit maps below will show you which states you can carry concealed in as well as which state’s permits are honored in a particular state. If you have a concealed carry permit and want to know which state you can carry in use the default map “States That Honor My Permit(s). If you want to know which state’s permits are honored in a particular state, click on the “Permits Honored By State” tab. If you need help with these maps or what reciprocity means, click here to view our detailed explanation below.

For those who question what this article has to do with gasoline or diesel prices, consider this thought. This article and the website it goes to does tell us which states to avoid if at all possible which are the states in RED. Even if one must pass through a RED state as depicted on this website map, one can manage not to spend one thin dime within that state especially in the North East and Mid-Atlantic states where the states are so small.

We will try to not travel in, stay in, spend any dollars in or sightsee in any Red state because the states in Blue are safer to be in as a traveler simply because the “bad elements” one may encounter in any state have no idea who is or is not a legal concealed carry person. While there is no such reality in life as a 100% safe place or situation to be in, there are obviously safer places to be compared to other places one can voluntarily be in.

Good to know that this information can be easily found, because sorting it out can make one's head spin. I don't have any firearms myself, but maybe someday I'd like to go through the training just to get the skill. Not really practical for me, though, because I'm a heavy sleeper and most places I go don't individually allow them anyway.

No, this has nothing to do with gas prices, but it's good for those of us who may have them in our vehicles to think before crossing state lines.

The first thing that ALL concealed permit holders learn is where they can and can't take their guns. You just have to know how to reroute around some states which can make for a lengthy trip.

The only right where you must have a permit. and even then some still say no.

And for those who do not wish too, so be it.

Have not been on vacation for 8 years. But concealed is the best, don't advertise with open carry... That makes you a target.. Better to make it a surprise for the thugs if you need it...

Really?? If you're that concerned about your safety on the road, maybe it would be wiser to scratch the vacation & STAY HOME!

Not that I'll be "packing", but I would guess, without consulting the map, that Texas is a sure bet for "open carry"... make sure you are packing when you go to the grocery store so you can become a victim in the event bad guys try something... remember, the two officers killed in Vegas were both well armed and highly trained "good guys" who were taken out by bad guys with guns
