West Virginia will now legally recognize concealed-carry handgun permits issued by the states of Iowa and New Hampshire.
Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced the reciprocity agreement Wednesday in Charleston. He said it brings the total number of states that will honor West Virginia's concealed-carry permits to 36.
West Virginia, in turn, recognizes permits from a total of 29 other states.
Iowa and New Hampshire residents can now carry their guns in West Virginia as long as they're 21 or older, and they have their permits with them.
Morrisey said the agreements grew from weeks of negotiations. He looks forward to securing similar deals with more states.
Since this summer, his office has also added Idaho, Colorado and Georgia to the list of states with full reciprocity agreements.
