    I live in Pennsylvania and have my LTCF and regularly CC and OC. I know that PA and NH have reciprocity, but what are my rights when stopped for CC or OC? Am I required to produce ID? My girlfriend lives in Nashua and I am in town frequently, so I would like to know my rights, as well as people's experience with an out of state LTCF. Thanks in advance from a newbie to the forum.

    You have all the same rights as you normally would. I know some will disagree with me, but if stopped for OC, I am respectful and give him my name and address. If you are CC, that is a different story. I will supply my license and my permit. If I'm respectful and courteous, I have gotten that back and never had a prob.

    As far as I know that is all you need to do, but I would suggest you consult a lawyer for those questions.

    I know that you are NOT required to show ID if stopped OCing as NH resident. You are required only to tell them your name and that you are a resident of NH.

    I do not know if the rules are different as Non-resident.

    I would suggest you look into the statutesavailable at NH.gov they clearly cover your rights on this topic.

    You are only required to IDENTIFY yourself (name, addr, and 'business' are all) *IF* they have reason to believe you have committed a crime. I get stopped and if they ask for ID, "I don't have any." What is your name, "What reason do you have to believe I've committed a crime, are committed a crime, or will commit a crime?" None, "Good, am I free to go?"

    The identification requirement arises out of the prowling statute, and nowhere else, and that's where the "has committed, is committing, or is about to commit a crime" wording comes from.
