Utah is one of the few states that issues out of state CCW permits. And quite a few state reciprocate with Utah. If you have a Utah permit, it's as good as having a Virginia or Pennsylvania permit in those states.
It still wouldn't count for Maryland. You have to be friends with O'Malley or Mikulski to get a permit in MD. Or there are several police report documented threats against you. If you know Babs, you get the permit in a week. If a street gang in your neighborhood wants to kill you it takes about 8 months.
Other ways to get a permit in MD. Be a cop. Be a armored car driver. Carry large amounts of cash for your business. Transport a lot of firearms for legitimate purposes. Be a foreign national with God-knows what crimes in your home country but work for an embassy here.
Florida issues out of state, but they are much more expensive. Easier to get though, as FL doesn't require a training certificate. I have a training cert for Utah. Utah coast $65.25 and less to renew every 5 years.
Oddly, Florida doesn't accept Utah out of state permits. Probably want that permit money for themselves. Once across the Potomac I could carry a pistol in my sock all the way through to Arizona, or from PA through to Indiana and south from there.
YOU can carry in Alaska and Vermont, if you owned a gun. In Alaska, preferrably a BIG gun. Don't end up like Grizzly Man.
The Missus has a pretty nasty stomache bug - And by "pretty nasty" I'll just elide the details, if you don't mind. But she's up to the toast and seltzer stage, so *Excelsior!*
