AZ/FL/NV/OR/UT permits...
This year, I decided to just go for it. It just so happens, I travel to each of these states either for Work or Pleasure several times a year. In fact, heading to Phoenix and Orlando again in Sept. While there is reciprocity across states (and I could technically get away with only a few of these permits) I am compelled to acquire them "because I can".

1) Though it costs a bit more, It's my way of supporting the state that allows me, a resident of CA, to obtain their non-resident permit. Take my money.
2) If stopped by LE, I simply feel more complete knowing I'm carrying in their state with a permit they issued to me.
3) Through time, some states' reciprocity laws have changed, and this is my way of "locking in" the permits for the states I travel to most.

The downside obviously is that I'll be renewing multiple permits, but that's OK - that's what I signed up for.

Funny part is the "gateway permit", Utah, will essentially be for good measure as I've only ever been there once in my life to go snowboarding in Park City and Brighton... maybe one day I'll return. If I could do it over, I would have planned to take the NV training class to use for all the permits.... but it turns out I ended up taking 1 class in CA, and will take the 8 hour class in NV.

Anyone else feel that multiple permits is overkill but ACTUALLY justify it in a similar fashion to myself?

Probably going to have some questions regarding TSA/travel soon, but most info I'm finding is consistent.

- Check the airline policy first. Print out their regs and carry it with me (I'm seeing a trend of overkill, LOL)
- Understand the laws of the state I'm flying to.
- Check with Calguns for any additional tips/tidbits =)

Can't argue with your logic. AZ, FL. UT can be done by mail. NV and OR in person only, also for renewals. Worth noting the number of OR counties that accept applications from nonresidents is shrinking, and most of those that do require a county specific statement from the applicant.

^^ Thank you will keep that in mind! I like having an excuse for my wife and I to travel - though she rarely says no to Vegas... LOL

Sounds like a plan. I can easily see it making the difference in an LE contact, a permit from his state v. one he's never seen before from some other place. As in the difference between getting a ticket or a warning and getting on your way, or sitting handcuffed on the curb while other cops, SGTs, and LTs came around and have a lengthy debate about what to do with you.

I saw you posted in another thread where SkyHawk mentioned the GFSZ thing, which I wasn't aware of. (I don't get out much.) That's huge, it doesn't matter where you are, if you're outside your own neighborhood you're not going to know where every school is. I know "There's an app for that", but things change and the app might not be able to keep up. A same-state CCW would give you a little extra buffer from criminality.
