The 1st reason to have a Alaska CCW is for reciprocity. States that honor Alaska CCW are also listed below
Got this from http://www.usacarry.com/concealed_ca...city_maps.html
These states honor Alaska CCW permit:
Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wyoming
The 2nd reason is a little different. No one can carry a gun into a restaurant that serves intoxicating beverages unless they have a CCW permit. If you have a CCW then you may carry, although you may not consume any intoxicating beverages.
If you look up the Alaska Statues starting with AS 11.61.190. and read through AS 11.61.220, most recent updates are in parentheses.
