Well here in CA the firearms safety class is only required on handgun sales. Rifles and shotguns do not require the safety class. The only way to pay and walk out with a firearm in CA is with a FFL license or be a law officer. I do not think CA honors other state concealed carry permits.

Here is a site that will tell you Concealed Carry Permit Reciprocity.

It depends on the states. If its ok with the state your in & the state you are a resident of then you are ok. I think though that NYS has a limitaion that says its residents can only buy from "contiguous" states, in other words ones it touches. So if I'm right you cant buy a gun in Cali as a NY resident.
CT is better in that regard & I can buy a long gun in any state as long as that state will sell it to non residents. Handguns cant be sold to non residents period I BELIEVE, but could be wrong. You need to have them shipped to a FFL in your resident state & in NY you couldn't buy it unless you had a permit.

They don't. The Peoples Republic of Kalifornia is a "may issue" permit state, which pretty much means the only people that can get permits in most counties are the rich and powerful. My MS carry permit is not applicable to CA.

The easiest response to the OP and future readers (who posted several months ago) is that gun laws vary from state to state and you must be familiar with your own state. Thus the information in many of these responses may not apply to you. i.e. - waiting periods for hand gun purchases - vary from state to state. My state (MS) has no waiting period.

There are many counties in CA that issue CCW permits like dog licenses. My county issues for a good reason, $200 and a 8 hour class.

I've heard that. So yes it's very dependent on the county and possibly the political affiliation of the powers in that county. Some counties, obviously the urban ones, almost impossible to get a CCW license.

Wow, that's like 200% over what it costs me for a 5 year permit

Well, in MA, it was about $800, doctor visit, safety class, and an 8-month wait. (this was in 1992).
They were really miffed when I ran the CORI on myself and gave it to them (as having them do it would have delayed it even longer).
They wouldn't even give me a 'For all lawful purposes', just a 'Target and Hunting', which is relatively useless, and you can't hunt with a handgun in MA anyways.

Large-capacity carry permits are almost impossible in MA, without a really good reason (like employment)

But, now that I am in NH, it cost $10, took 3 days, and that was it.
When I went in to see the Chief of Police, and said I wanted to pick up a few class-3, he said "I don't care what you buy"

Wooh-hoo! I love NH

Another reason H.R. 822 needs to pass. I don't carry much because I randomly have to go to ME or MA during my workday, and I can't afford a non-resident permit, nor do I want to jump through the hoops required to get one.

I understand your situation. I feel somewhat 'trapped' here in NH... if I get a job in another state and need to move there, I am in for a mess of paperwork. The CCW's may or may not be possible, the Class-3's are either close to, or totally impossible, to move. (I think MA would NOT be happy, though I would never move back there again, for any reason). If I really got stuck, I could put many of them in the big safe in a storage unit here in NH, but that sort of defeats the purpose of going out to the range on a nice Sunday afternoon, with friends, and having an enjoyable shoot.

I wish the Fed gov. would step in and state the rules of 'carry anywhere', and the ATF would lighten up on us. The only people that really get penalized are those of us who are law-abiding citizens. What a sad state of affairs.

They already did with the 2nd amendment. Says we can keep & bear arms. Doesn't say with ATF or state or town or political or nosy busybody's permission. Just says we can do it. I dont think I'd support a national carry law, that would plainly be unconstitutional & step on states rights.
It doesn't have to be a level field just like its not level regarding drivers licenses and registrations. Some states are easier than others, yet they all recognize other states licenses & registrations. What the feds need to do is to start arresting state & city LE that arest people for breaking illegal laws for violating their civil rights. They need to start arresting legislators that even vote for such things, let alone sponsor them, for violating their oaths of office. Least thats how I see it, but I dont play nice.
