So I took a few minutes to see on Usacarry.com what you get for a Utah vs PA, Vs FLA License.

(information subject to change, and also accuracy of their website, so feel free to correct me)

All three Licenses get you these states:

PA-UT-FLA
Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wyoming

UT-FLA ADDITIONS:
Alabama, Delaware, Mississippi, Nebraska, Ohio, Washington

UT ADDITION ONLY:
Minnesota

FLA ADDITION ONLY:
Florida, Kansas, New Mexico

In Short: If you want coverage only in section 1, you can get by with a PA license. If you want the additional coverages of the states in part 2, you need either a UT or FLA license. If you want Part 3 or 4, you must get the UT or FLA license.

You listed Pennsylvania twice.
And isn't it USACARRY.COM ?

BTW..
Thanks for putting this together.
Now I know since I have the PA license, I don't need FL or UT.

Actually, they list it twice, and I don't know why. They list the states of the states I chose twice. And your right on the website address. Fixed.

Like it lists, if you want Alabama, Delaware, Mississippi, Nebraska, Ohio, Washington, you need to get one of the UT or FLA licenses.

Don't overlook the deleware and ohio regions; they are only a skip away from PA. Plus, its my opinion that having as many individual state ones is a bonus- its just easier to deal with in case you get stopped or run into some trouble.

If you live in suffolk and have an out of state license, are you able to purchase a gun out of state and bring it back?

Thanks, figured that was the case. I have my permit application in, so I am still learing the subleties of all the rules.

It does not matter what kind of carry license you have, transfers across state lines are covered by the GCA of 68. Generally you need an FFL on both sides to transfer a handgun. You can buy a long gun in a contiguous state but you need to buy from an FFL in that state or transfer through an FFL. Of course state laws on both sides can restrict it further.

For instance, I am an Ohio resident, Ohio and Kentucky have reciprocity and I carry there all the time. I can drive 30 minutes to Ashland, Ky. and shop at Borders Outdoors.

  • If I buy a rifle or a shotgun, I can complete a NICS check at the store and walk away with it.
  • If I buy a handgun, I have to pay for it then tell them to deliver it to my FFL in Ohio which they do all the time. In fact I think they have a regular delivery route. I then go to my dealer, give him $20, complete the NICS check and walk away with it.
  • If I meet up with a friend who is a Kentucky resident and buy a shotgun from him, we can take it to a local FFL, complete a NICS check and walk away with it.
  • If I meet the same friend and buy a handgun, then he will have to ship it to an Ohio FFL so that I can do a NICS check.

I can do all of that in Pennsylvania as well. However, I cannot carry there since they do not have reciprocity and I do not have a Penn non-res yet.

While you need to have a permit to buy a handgun in New York, Federal and state laws, independent of any license or permit, may also govern what you buy and where. If you own property and live temporarily in other states, you can, depending upon state law, buy a gun in that state as a resident. That does not mean you can automatically bring it to New York. The federal laws are standard across the country, it is the states that can complicate things. When in doubt, check with the authorities and hope you get someone competent that day.

In New York handgun permits are restricted by most counties.Only retired LEO and No Restrictions are Full Carry in New York.A very popular way of getting a PA LTC firearms is getting it done by the Centre County Sheriff.This enables a New York permit holder cross into other states like North Carolina ,Georgia,Virginia,West Virginia.A popular trend is the Florida/Utah non resident license.New Yorkers are discovering New Hampshire,Maine and Connecticut because they can be done by mail.New York City is a little more detailed and costly but can be done with a Special No Restrictions permit.That permit is issued to only New York permit holders with a full carry.
