The West Virginia Attorney General’s Office has affirmed concealed carry recognition with Pennsylvania and Florida.

Pennsylvania and Florida will continue to recognize concealed handgun licenses issued to West Virginians who are 21 and older.

The West Virginia Attorney General’s Office said each year it engages in discussions with every state to ensure continued recognition of West Virginia’s concealed handgun licenses and to explore the potential for expansion.

More announcements are expected as Attorney General Patrick Morrisey anticipates all existing concealed carry recognitions to continue or be enhanced as the annual discussions progress, the office said.

Recognition in Pennsylvania and Florida is limited to concealed carry licenses issued to adults age 21 and older.  Those states do not recognize West Virginia’s provisional licenses issued to people ages 18 to 20.

The Attorney General’s Office previously announced continued recognition with Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
