    Traveling through Mississippi w/Kansas Coneal & Carry

    I'm a Kansas conceal & carry license holder and travel frequently through Alabama/Mississippi on my way to Florida which is a reciprocal state.
    I noticed Alabama and Mississippi do not honor my Kansas CC license.
    What are the rules if I'm traveling through and may only stop for gas/food?
    Should I leave my pistol in the car? etc.

    Thanks....

    Start here: http://www.handgunlaw.us/ for information on the laws of the intervening states.

    If you make this trip regularly, you should obtain a Utah or Florida non-resident permit, it will give you reciprocity in both those states.

    In Mississippi you are allowed to carry inside a vehicle if you are over 18.

    Traveling is also a defense to a CCW charge (MC Code 97-37-9-(b))

    EDIT: Code corrected. Thanks Deputy Sheriff.

    Q-Tip meant MS Code 97-37-9(b)

    As for Alabama, check out the last part of 13A-11-74.

    Thanks all, I was hoping not to have to lock my firearm and ammunition in a seperate compartment for the short trip through Alabama on my way to Florida, as I don't have a trunk in my SUV.
