    Since reading recent articles about H.R. 822: National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011, I am curious as to how far and wide the average guy does carry concealed.

    As for me, I hold concealed weapon/handgun/pistol licenses from 5 states and still cannot carry when I travel to Colorado :( Here is a list of the 15 states where I have legally exercised my Right.

    Arizona
    Idaho
    Indiana
    Iowa
    Kansas
    Missouri
    Montana
    Nevada
    Ohio
    Oregon
    Pennsylvania
    South Dakota
    Utah
    Washington
    Wyoming

    I'll have to plead the 5th since you asked "legally". Ha-ha

    +1 to the Pacific Northwest! You've got an impressive list there.

    As far as I'm concerned, if you can legally carry or you have taken the time to get your license, - in my-not-so-humble-opinion - you have no excuse not to carry.
    Job interviews, visiting family, friends' house, church, "I'm gonna run to the store," whatever your reason is, there is no excuse not to once you start doing it.

    If I was invited to a place where I was told not to carry, I would hypothetically decline.
    Unless it was in regards to someone being born or about to die (of natural causes: cancer, etc).*

    *Exceptions for federal buildings (airport secure areas, etc).

    Legally? Washington.

    Otherwise? Well...a bunch of other states.

    Of course, Redcap, we know you are kidding us when inferring you have committed multiple felonies :)

    Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas.

    Pay CLOSE ATTENTION to the laws in the various states. Some whacky stuff out there.
    Example: New Mexico. Carrying in an establishment that serves alcohol--yup--any restuarant
    where you can get a beer---felony.

    Oregon and Washington. Flew to Salt Lake a couple months ago and drove back, but didn't feel like checking my baggage, so I didn't bring it. (Otherwise I would have added Utah and Idaho to the list.)

    Oregon, Washington, Idaho. If I could wish for one state's reciprocity, it would be California. Those rest areas along I-5 are scary, and I have ended up in bad parts of Oakland and Stockton while there on business.
