I am a resident of North Carolina working in New York on a short term contract,there are 30 states that recognize my concealed carry permit,NY is not one. :( Please give me your thoughts on driving through other states with my Handgun,I know the Gun must be legal in the state where your journey began and legal where your journey ends,but give me the definition of "ENDS"?Can I stop at a hotel for a nap,over night, get lunch,gas,is there a time limit which defines "END"?I think all of us would like to read some of your answers.The law is so vague and open to ones own interpretation.

Yeah, that. It would probably be better to ship a gun to your destination than to carry it through NY without a NY permit. Unless of course, this whole reciprocity bill gets passed. In the mean time, I wouldn't stop in NY unless absolutely necessary.

Also, if you're working in NY, and are driving here, I would leave the gun at home. Even coming to NY and leaving it in your temporary residence could get you in trouble.

Unless you have a NYS Carry license or fall under the very few exceptions you cannot legally carry in NY State. Possession (transportation) in a locked container et al is permissible under a few exceptions coming into NY (sanctioned matches where you are a listed competitor etc) but there are myriad rules to follow. Transportation THROUGH NY from a legal destination outside NY to a legal destination outside NY is permissible as long as you follow the rules for transport.

Agreed.

"End" means the end of your trip. It's not really vague. Stopping overnight, gas, etc. is generally okay, since it's all part of the trip. If you want to be safe, you're better off just making one of your overnight stays in one of the "legal" states.

However, your post makes it sound like NY is one end of your trip. If that's the case, you can't possess the handgun here without a NYS license.

Federal Fire Arms Owners Protection Act allows you to transport from point A to point B if you are legal in both A & B. I would have no worries to transport my handgun thru NJ. I do it all the time. I just go straight thru...I do not stop for any reason. I would assume that driving thru NY without a NYS license would be the same deal. But if you are not licensed in NYS, stopping for anything other than an emergency could get you in some serious doo-doo.

You can do what you want, but your taking a great risk. We have had some recent news stories that can give you an idea of what happend to those with out of state handguns.

I would also imagine being from out of state, puts you at a greater risk of getting pulled over by police, just cause your not used to local traffic laws. I CCW'd in NH on a non res license and I was pulled over within a 1/2 hour of leaving my hotel. NH speed trap :p. I was good to go, cause I had a non resident license. NY does not issue non res licenses.
