This application is about empowering the CCW (concealed or open carry permit) holder (or anyone who wishes to lawfully transport a firearm in any state.) It gives you the direct information that you need to follow the maze of arcane, complicated, and dissimilar gun laws in each state and in each situation. It provides all this information with an easy-to-use User Interface. Laws updated monthly or more frequently!

UNIQUE: This application comes with a convenient map, useful in planning a trip. Choose (and save) your current license or permits (both Resident and Non-Resident) to see which states recognize YOUR permits. Shows a map (and list) of States in which YOU, specifically, can legally carry. See, at a glance, states in which to plan your next vacation, or plan your interstate-travel to avoid locations where you cannot carry. Type in and save details and notes for each permit.

This application puts all the power in your hands. You can easily access and review the relevant firearm laws and gun prohibitions for every state. This app shows you the actual gun laws, so you do not have to rely on someone elses interpretation. Find the prohibited locations, transportation rules, permit process, and more for every state! Also provides direct links to the laws themselves, so you can research any open questions. It includes the pertinent federal laws. For specific locations (such as restaurants serving alcohol), see the quick allowed status, then click for details and laws. Also includes "duty to notify" laws for each state (when available) for contact with a police officer, such as a traffic stop. The key information does not require internet connection; it’s located right on your phone!

The app now includes updates to the firearm laws without having to download a new version. Every time the app is updated with new or modified laws, it will prompt you to download the latest (usually takes only a few seconds). These changes stay with the app, and are available offline once downloaded! All information within the app (except "nearby location search") is stored locally on your device, and can be used whether or not you have internet access.

Review information direct from the state governments and law enforcement authorities: State Statutes for each state, Direct Reciprocity Information, CCW Application forms, State FAQs, and more. This compiled list of "best" links lets you directly see the details.

Interactive state maps show any scenario: All the states recognizing a specific permit, all the permits that a specific state allows, state map of type of permit available, map of states recognizing your permits. Click on any state to see the details for that state!

Find and contact (one touch dialing, mapping to office, email, and URL) local authorities in each state.

Find local points of interest, anywhere in the country! (training, ranges, gun shops, repair)

Automatically pull up the laws for your current state location based on GPS.

Ability to customize and save your preferences (background pictures on or off, map display preference, etc...). Save your list of permits for easy recognition. Allows you to store your permit number, expiration and notes as well.

Pros and cons of CCW – Concealed Carry 50 State Guide app for iPhone and iPad

CCW – Concealed Carry 50 State Guide app good for

If you have a permit or are considering getting one you owe it to yourself to get this app. Amazingly accurate with prompt updates so youre never in the dark about whats going on around you.
Timely updates and quick easy access to the most current ever changing CCW laws. Get this app along with your permit. Keep up the good work!
Awesome app. Always updated with latest info. Worth a lot more than theyre charging for peace of mind and singular repository of essential information.
I teach a CCW class and recommend this app to all my students. It is simple to us and provides a great amount of info.
A MUST for every gun owner that carries. Forget the other apps, this does it all. Free updates every couple of weeks or when an update for any of the fifty states rules change. Be informed and be safe.
Should be a required app for all CWP holders. Impressed with the information and the quick response from them with technical questions. Great customer service. Well done!

Some bad moments

The disclaimer states the app developers are not responsible for changes to reciprocity that may occur periodically. However, in regard to the state of Illinois vs. many other states reciprocity there has been no change since IL adopted CCW, yet this app reports good "green" reciprocity in states like Utah......which is, has been, and likely will be completely false. Best bet if traveling, consult the specific states website.....relying on this app could get you in trouble.
If you want to stay legal, get regular updates and have all the firearms laws that youre fingertips this is the one you want to stay legal. Spend a $1.99 because Ive bought them all & done the comparison. Homework is done.
I dont review often but this one deserves it. If you own a gun, have a CCW license, and travel, this is a must. Very thorough and updated as state laws change.
Love this app! I use it a lot. Mostly when traveling legally from state to state with my CCP. Very helpful and trust worthy.
Very good app very helpful and updated frequently. Thanks for the hard work and support for our second amendment rights! A must have for all CWL holders.
The developer keeps the info updated regularly. This is a great resource for every concealed carry permit holder.
