What makes Legal Heat the best concealed carry app?
--> Instant updates: When a law changes we will update the page on our server and it will instantly update on all user's phones the next time you open the app. (You will be notified that there has been a law change for the particular state and asked if you'd like to download the new page).
-->Reliability: We are not only firearm enthusiasts, we do this for a living. Legal Heat will always be updated and maintained, we're not going anywhere.
-->MUCH MORE: Video overviews of key laws (with more being added regularly), Open carry laws (coming by August), top of the line functionality, and many more surprises coming down the pipe. Legal Heat will be the premiere mobile source for years to come.
Legal Heat is a must have for every firearm owner in the United States and includes the following features:

** Reciprocity AND Reverse Reciprocity Maps: See where your permit is valid, and what permits your state accepts.
** Open Carry Laws for all 50 States: Concealed carry isn't the only way to carry, see what states allow open carry and where you can and cannot exercise that right. (We are in the process of updating all 50 state's open carry laws, these will be automatically added free of charge when they are completed).

UNIQUE: This application comes with a convenient map, useful in planning a trip. Choose (and save) your current permit or permits (both Resident and Non-Resident) to see which states recognize YOUR permits. Shows a map (and list) of States in which YOU, specifically, can legally carry. See, at a glance, states in which to plan your next vacation, or plan your interstate-travel to avoid locations where you cannot carry. Type in & save details and notes for each permit.
This application puts all the power in your hands. You can easily access and review the relevant firearm laws and prohibitions for every state. This app shows you the actual gun laws, so you do not have to rely on someone else’s interpretation. Find the prohibited locations, transportation rules, permit process, and more for every state! Also provides direct links to the laws themselves, so you can research any open questions. It includes the pertinent federal laws. For specific locations (such as restaurants serving alcohol), see the quick allowed status, as well as click for details and laws. Also includes "duty to notify" laws for each state(when available) for contact with a police officer, such as a traffic stop. The key information does not require internet connection; it’s located right on your phone!
The app now includes updates to the laws without having to download a new version. Every time the app is updated with new or modified laws, it will prompt you to download the latest (usually takes only a few seconds). These changes stay with the app, and are available offline once downloaded! All information within the app (except "nearby location search") is stored locally on your device, and can be used whether or not you have internet access.
Review information direct from the state governments and law enforcement authorities: State Statutes for each state, Direct Reciprocity Information, CCW Application forms, State FAQs, and more. This compiled list of "best" links lets you directly see the details.
Interactive state maps show any scenario: All the states recognizing a specific permit, all the permits that a specific state allows, state map of type of permit available, map of states recognizing your permits. Click on any state to see the details for that state!

Find local points of interest, anywhere in the country! (training, ranges, gun shops, repair)
Automatically pull up the laws for your current state location based on GPS.
