Summer is just around the corner and with that brings the start to vacations and putting endless miles in behind the wheel of our cars. As a Concealed Carry holder we need to take extra steps to plan our summer getaway before packing your bags and hitting the wide open roads.
Before picking your final destination check the map showing concealed carry reciprocity with Missouri. Since you are planning to Conceal Carry while on vacation; you will want to stay out of the 13 states that do not honor Missouri’s Conceal Carry Permit. This map will also be useful in helping you plan the route to drive being sure to steer clear of any state not recognizing Missouri’s CCW Permit.
Once you have your final destination picked and your route planned, visit NRA-ILA. This is a good one stop shop to review and print all the states Concealed Carry laws for the states you will be in while on vacation. Be sure to review and print the laws for all states your will drive through and for your finial destination.
After completing your homework at NRA-ILA, pack your bags and hit the road with confidence knowing you are abiding by the law and will be able to protect your family if you run into any danger.
If you are flying to your final destination be sure to review TSA’s guide for traveling with special items.
Stay safe, Carry on, and have a good summer.
