Crossing state lines requires following the law regarding "securing" a firearm. Most communities require a firearm be secured in the trunk.

doesn't matter, if your CCP is not valid in that state. not all states accept other states carry permits.

If you are planning to travel you should get the correct out-of-state CHL's that offer reciprocity for all the states you need to cross.

Only if you have both the UT and FL CCW licenses and are in one of the 33 states where they are recognized. The New England states often don't recognize each others' CCW much less the ones I mentioned. I am getting a CT license for two reasons.

I was really happy I was carrying the former when I arrived at my hotel room in Amarillo last week shortly after midnight. As I was unpacking my trunk, a man came walking across the parking lot from an adjacent hotel. His largely incoherent introduction began something like this:

“Hey, I’m a big scary black man and I need some help. Won’t nobody help me ‘cause I’m a...
