    They are one of two States, the other being Vermont, that does not require an actual license of anyone 21 and older to carry concealed. You may elect to get a permit to gain advantage of reciprocity in other States.

    The basics are this. There is no permit required to carry a concealed handgun in Alaska as long as you meet the requirements... no felons, limits on where you can carry like schools and Fed gov. buildings, places that serve alcohol, etc... Businesses can also post signs that deny concealed carry on their property. If contacted by a law enforcement officer you must tell them immediately that you are carrying. The screams that Alaska would become lawless like the wild west did not come true when Murkowski signed the legislation for this years ago. In fact, I can't remember the last time a citizen shooting has even made the news.

    You can also get a concealed carry license in Alaska by going through the required training. This enables you to carry in states that have a reciprocity agreement with Alaska for CCW.

    Thats it, I gotta move.

    Funny that the Brady bunch never brings up Alaska's high crime rate. After all Alaska only got 4 out of 100 points

    The main reason the no permit required law was signed into law was because people out in the bush were unable to access training courses easily. This caused some confusion for the people in urban areas like Anchorage. As far as I know, cities and towns are prohibited from passing laws that are more restrictive than state law.
