Traveling with a firearm is oftentimes a daunting task and most of us just want to be able to carry a concealed firearm with us to protect ourselves and our families in unfamiliar places. That is why knowing the ins and outs of the places you’re going to is extremely important lest you run afoul of the local laws and regulations. Often times there can be subtle differences even between neighboring states in regards to the types of ammunition, magazine capacity or features that your particular firearm has that may make it illegal to carry into that state.
