Additional Information

UNIQUE: This application comes with a convenient map, useful in planning a trip. Choose (and save) your current permit or permits (both Resident and Non-Resident) to see which states recognize YOUR permits. Shows a map + list of States in which YOU can legally carry. See, at a glance, states in which to plan your next vacation or interstate-travel to avoid locations where you cannot carry. Type in & 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 prohibitions for every state. This app shows you the actual laws, so you do not have to rely on someone else's interpretation. Find the prohibited locations, transportation rules, permit process, and more for every state! Also provides direct links to the laws themselves (federal and state), so you can research any open questions. For specific locations (such as restaurants serving alcohol), see the quick allowed status, as well as 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 info does not require internet connection; it's located right on your phone!

The app adds updates to the law 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 phone, 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 (custom or standard background pictures, map display preference, etc...). Save your list of permits, for easy recognition. Allows you to store your permit number, expiration and notes as well.

Has iPad-specific views and display on this universal iPhone / iPad app.

  • A Must Have!

    A handgun, CCW insurance, and this app.

  • Best CCW app avaiable!

    I have regretfully purchased other such Apps with mixed or dismal results. This App is set-up well, intuitive to use, up to date, and true value for the money - in fact, at $1.99, it is a steal!! If you are going to be carrying outside you home state or carrying in your home state, and want to be well informed regarding the rules, you can't do better than this!

  • Gr8 App/a must for CCW👍

    A gr8 go to App for anyone with a carry permit/resource even for state laws, etc. Highly recommended (as do instructors).


    This app gives you all the information you will ever need. Get it you won't regret it.

  • Must have for travelers.

    As an instructor and an attorney, I can't stress how important it is to have this app if you do any interstate travel. We take at least 2 multi state motorcycle trips every year and everyone, I use this to see things like requires to notify officer, can I carry in a bar, etc. if you carry, you need this app.

  • Not bad

    Pennsylvania does not recognize ohio's ccw and you have it listed that it does. Otherwise, it's pretty good

  • Great !

    This is the app you always wanted. So just download it and be informed.

  • Great app

    Best app yet!!

  • CCW updates

    Great app with timely updates. As a permit holder and law abiding citizen I rely on this app for state updates in their CCW laws and regs. I recommend this app to all of my friends. Thank you and keep up the great work!

  • Great App For CCW Citizens...

    Great app with great features. One reviewer said it would be even better to have open carry regulations listed. While that would definitely make it better, I also have Legal Heat on my phone. This way I have all of my bases covered.

  • Very informative app

    Very nice app if only my permit was legal in Cali

  • Great app, but...

    This a fairly comprehensive app for CCW with easy to access information as desired. However, it would be a HUGE plus to include information on Open Carry as well since a significant number of enthusiasts are seeking that option and States are considering granting this alternative.

  • Excellent app

    Great up to date information. Easy to navigate and well worth the two dollars!

  • Great app

    This app is great, $1,99 well spent

  • Exactly what is needed

    It's a shame that the tyrannical laws of some states cause gun owners to desperately need this information, but once again the free market delivers to meet our need with excellence in the form of this app. Its authors provide regularly updated and consistently accurate information, and also list various bibliographic links to the states' web pages along the way so the user can personally read the laws from their sources to verify the app author's interpretations and make the wisest decision for him or herself. This is a precious little time saving app that can keep law-abiding, freedom-loving people from making mistakes of ignorance that could cost them dearly.

  • Awesome quick reference.

    A must have.

  • Very cool app

    Like this app because it's a one stop shop ! All the information you need at your fingertips. Every States reciprocity laws right there and easy to use.

  • Excellent

    Laws are updated on regular basis. Great for travel to different States.

  • Very well done.

    Current and useful. Great for traveling.

  • Best CCW Resource App!

    This app is the best resource for concealed handgun carriers out there. The developers have compiled the "must have" information you need to know about CCW laws, especially if you travel to different states. Keep up the great work!

  • Best maps for multi-state CHL holders.

    I have tried several concealed carry law applications, and this is still the best. I recommended a couple corrections, and they were quickly corrected. The update rate is better than any other CCL app that I have. Every time there is an update, the app becomes better, with new features and bug fixes (although there are seldom any bugs to fix).

  • Excellent !!

    Professionally done. Out of all I've seen I like the features of this one the most. Great customer support and regularly updated. (Monthly at least.) Beautiful update. Thanks... The best, just keeps getting better.

  • Awesome app!

    Great info and updated frequently.

  • A must have

    Great app in many aspects. Love the additional state info provided. Great for any gun owner and traveler.

  • Perfect

    The most convenient and comprehensive concealed carry site I have seen ..I have recommended it to several friends & they say the same !

  • Great App!

    The manner in which information is presented increases the value of the data exponentially! One tap on my iPhone and instantly I get up to date info on all of the States that accept my permits. Thanks!!

  • Great for bikers

    If you ride out of state, this is a must for you.

  • Great App

    Thank you keeping all of us updated with great information. I for one appreciate your efforts. Great app!

  • Don't leave home without it!

    Best APP you will find and the price is worth every penny If you have a CCW Permit, it would be smart to download this APP


    This is just great and should be recommended by all CCL instructors. Just to have the laws in every state you can carry is priceless.

  • For 2$= priceless

    Great app easy to use with tons of info I needed especially moving 1500 miles away I wanted to know what I can and can't travel with in certain states. I am very happy with this app!

  • Handy app, almost necessary for every CHL holder

    The only thing more to ask for would be plain-language attorney interpretations, but this app is great as-is.

  • Excellent Resource

    Awesome resource for each states laws! I haven't found another app that provides as much comprehensive information as this one.

  • Awesome app for CCW owners

    This app is excellent for any legal CCW owner! It updates all the time and the information seems very accurate!

  • CCW 👍

    This is a great app if you carry. It is constantly getting updates as laws change. Highly recommend it for those with a ccw

  • One of the best!! I use this everyday!!

    Love this app. I use this app all the time. Best ever!

  • Comprehensive & timely

    I use this APP everyday in the gun store I work in. Very up to date The best one out there. UP TO DATE.Easy to use, I travel the East coast alot and this APP comes in VERY handy

  • Outstanding app

    This app is great. It does all the hard work of keeping up with all of the ever changing laws throughout the nation... Don't leave home without it.

  • Excellent!

    Absolutely amazing! User friendly, full of useful information that would otherwise take many hours to look up, and keeps you updated as things change.

  • Informative

    The way the laws are today you have to check every week and almost every day great app

  • Awesome useful App

    I have been using this app for over 6 months now and find it full of necessary information when I travel as the laws are always changing some place and it seems to keep up. I did have a problem with the latest update but I emailed Ryan and he figured it out and got it working fine. If you carry I strongly urge you to get this App.

  • Worth the price

    This app is a great tool if you have your CCW. All the laws in one app. Great job.

  • You owe me!

    I teach CCW classes, I've taught over a thousand students in my locality. The local Sherriff's office told me that the amount of students I've sent them has justified extra budget for them and allowed them to buy updated fingerprinting technology. I connect my iPad to a big screen for each class and tell them that this app is the best $1.99 they will ever spend as a CCW licensee. I show them the value of the app as I go through it and demonstrate its features. I also show various state licenses and non-resident permits in that I live in a tri-state area. This app is well worth the money. I want to know how to get my commission check.

  • Great information!!!

    Highly recommend for the new CCW licensees

  • CCW app

    Use it all the time especially when traveling across this great country.

  • Best of the bunch...and updates consistently!

    I have 3 other apps for ccw....none of them work as well or are updated frequently enough....good info and easy to read.

  • Concaled Carry App

    I stumbled upon this app and am I glad I did. I have two state permits which allow me to carry in every state that I encounter when I travel. Prior to this app, I had to check the State Police web sites of the states I planned to travel through or call them to verify that no new changes would prohibit me from carrying within their state. In addition, each state has different prohibited areas. This app defines all of these areas by state. In example, Oklahoma allows concealed carry in rest areas as long as you don't go into a building. How would I have known, otherwise? I know the information is current because right after I downloaded the app, I was informed that there were updates that needed to be downloaded. In my opinion, if you carry concealed, you need this app. More than well worth the money.

  • Update problem

    Recently the app will not update. I get a "can't reach server, try again tomorrow" error. Apparently there is no way to attempt an update manually. I don't want to wait 24 hours to try again.

  • Awesome App!

    A MUST HAVE for any CCW holder or anyone who travels with firearms.

  • Great App

    The app's ability to show you all the states that honor YOUR permit(s) makes it worth the price. It also places all the relevant information you need as a CCW holder at your fingertips. For example, a single tap shows you the state's (where you are at that moment) reciprocity; places where carry is allowed and prohibited areas; duty to inform; preemption rules; signage laws; open carry info; links to the state's statutes and much more. This really is a great app.
