i tried to post this at the counter since i really am not sure of where it should go but it said i was not aloud.

i am a Florida resident and have my CCW... I am trying to find information on acquiring a Utah non resident permit and not having much luck on websearches other than " get both today for $150". does anyone here have experience in this or hold both permits? how do u go about getting the Utah permit? i travel a lot and would like to be legal in as many states as possible.

Hey, mydixiwerecked00 --

I am a UT resident, and have a UT permit. Here is the link with with OFFICIAL information:

http://publicsafety.utah.gov/bci/concealedfirearms.html

Keep in mind that there are a few states that only accept your permit if you are a resident of the state from which the permit is issued. This is not the case very often, however. If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me.

Several of the gun ranges around the Portland area have Utah instructors that regularly put on Utah classes to meet Utah's qualifications.  It's a big enough deal to have a permit from Utah that you can get their classes several states away - pretty cool if you ask me. But I'm still for a "Full Faith and Credit" recognition of another state's licenses throughout the US.

So am I. Of course, the phrase, "...throughout the US." implies concealed carry be made legal everywhere, which it should. I'd be content with one license that covered all places now legal to carry as being a good starting point.

I think that the Florida permit is still most widely accepted.

FYI.
Colorado recently passed a law that in order to CCW in their state, you must be a resident of the state that issued your permit............. (or something to that effect). May need Spikejerk or others to chime in for exact details.

All the current data for the USA re CCW permits can be found at:

http://handgunlaw.us/

I went to a Utah/Florida Class held at a local gun shoppe in Illinois, taught by an excellent Utah certified instructor from Minnesota.

To get the FL permit all that was required was demonstrating safe gun handling & firing at the range and paying an additional $25 fee (plus the FL fee of course). For now I just have the Utah one. Other than FL there were not any additional States that offered reciprocity more than UT did over the FL permit. (or at least none where I planned on visiting any time soon-lol)

The FL non-resident permit will allow you to carry in FL but the Utah one is only good for Utah residents travelling in FL. Florida obviously does not have a problem with non-resident permit holders as long as they support the FL economy by paying their fee too.

i believe that while florida ccws are even more recognized than utah ccws, the state of florida requires residency, wherease utah does not.

NOPE>...Florida issues out of state .........  I have one in my pocket.

From the Florida website linked below:

Eligibility Requirements

You must be 21 years of age or older.
You must be able to demonstrate competency with a firearm.
Unless you are serving overseas in the United States Armed Forces, you must currently reside in the United States (US) ....




When I have questions about a particular State.... I go to that states website and look at the source.

There are many good sites set up to compare and list what states are doing... but the bottom line for me is to go to to the state site.




Utah     http://publicsafety.utah.gov/bci/concealedfirearms.html

Florida   http://licgweb.doacs.state.fl.us/weapons/index.html


SIDE NOTE:  One of the things I really like about the Florida permit is that it is signed by Charles Bronson!   ;D

Not only does FL do non-resident licensing, but with a copy of your dd214 (honorable discharge) they will fore go any training requirement. Basically, you send in your application with fingerprints, a passport photo, dd214 and a check and you get back a 5 year permit good in 30-something states.

I think Utah is one of the most widely accepted, and it issues to non-residents. You don't even have to take the classes in Utah. If having a Utah CCW would allow you to carry in more states than your own state's CCW allows, then it's likely that most places that conduct classes for your state permit will also do them for Utah. Of course, if your state doesn't require a class, then it may be more difficult to find a place that does the classes. The best places to look would be ranges and clubs that offer NRA-qualified instructors.

I know that in Arizona, the Utah CCW will allow 3 additional states: Nevada, Washington, and Minnesota. Those are the only states that a Utah license covers which are not covered with an Arizona CCW. I am thinking of taking the class soon, just in case I need to go to those states (particularly NV and WA).

Yeah, my main reason for wanting a Utah non resident CCW is to carry in MN. i did do a lil research in my trusty 2008 Travelers Guide to the Firearm Laws of the Fifty States and it says they allow non resident Utah permits. The most interesting tidbit i found was that MN shall issue a non resident permit by applying at any sherrifs office in the state and meeting all their criteria. Guess that means if im reading this correctly UT and FL are not the only places to get a non resident permit anymore.

Just a little item to add to that TxC...Florida CWP license is now good for 7 years, as of June tyhis year.

And here is a great site for carrying concealed throughout the USA.

They accept several different forms to show proficiency.  I mailed a copy of my Hunters Saftey card that I got when I was 12 :) Now I'm about half-way through the wait for my KS permit.
