    My son lives in PA near Philly. I would drive up to see him occasionally and not think about it. If I took the back way up, I stayed in MD and PA. Last weekend, I took 95. I didn't think about it. After all, I have the permits for both MD and PA. Well I saw the signs for Delaware and a brief panicked ensued. I was carrying and don't have a DE permit. Luckily for me, I have FLA, which covers me in DE. So I was good, but I was ready to pull over, clear and stow my firearm. My CCW app came to the rescue.
    It made me realize that I really need to be careful when traveling with my new reality. A trip I have made many times has taught me to not take things for granted. I have taken 83 most of the times I go there where I stayed within my permit states. I have had my MD and PA since early Aug. So only been carrying almost full time for a few months. Still getting used to the regs and screwed up reprocity laws.

    I go see my mom in the Villanova area travelling from DC area. I have been taking Rt 1 for the past 10+- years. Nice chill ride. 95 sucks.

    The point is that I took a different route to a place I travel to occasionally and ended going up through a different state.

    My head is pointy.


    It is an important point. Another place to be careful is DC. I have a son in Northern VA. I take Rt. 50 to 495 to 95 South, avoiding DC. But on a few occasions Waze (traffic app), took me through DC I-395. I don't think I'm good in DC.
    If you don't have a DC permit you are not.

    All the more reason to make sure you have coverage and redundancy in all neighboring states if possible.

    Going 50 - 495 - 95 still takes you through DC....
    as you cross the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, you are in DC for approximately 300 yards.

    It actually goes onland on the VA side of the Potomac. If you walk around Jones Point, there are markers for all three of the boundries DC/MD, DC/VA, MD/VA.

    This is a timely topic. I have a place in DE. So what's the best way to get me covered to carry in DE being MD is my primary residence? Do the Utah non resident permit? Should I see about getting an actual DE permit even though my residence there is a second home?

    From what I understand, DE does not issue NR permits, except for 30 days at a time or something. If your legal residence is in MD, you will have to get a NR from somewhere like FLA or one to the other states the DE recognizes. Check Handgunlaw.US to make sure. Check DE's laws to really make sure. I do know they do not accept MD or PA. Someone smarter than me will be along shortly.
    Or, change your residency to DE. But that can open up another can of worms.
