    Talking Wife Getting Utah Permit!!

    Yep, Mrs. GB is going to be one of us!!

    She's visiting her parents in New Mexico next week and has signed up for a Utah non resident permit course. The course she'll be taking involves live fire which is not required by Utah but is still obviously a good thing.

    Utah has closed the door for for Canadians for issuing new permits and renewals, but Mrs. GB is a US citizen, dual actually.

    This means on our trips down South we'll both be able to carry.

    I've already set her up with a Smith Airweight dressed up with a pink Hogue Bantam grip.

    Whatayya think guys and gals?

    Thats great!

    On a side note: I wonder what the laws are in other countries(outside the US) in relation to firearms? You live in canada and own handguns/longguns, yes?

    Yep, I've got a bunch of them, long, short, and everything in between.

    As far as our laws go, check out Canadian Firearms Program.

    Sounds like as a US citizen with a state CHL you are NOT going to cross the border into Canada -- the first time, at least -- with any firearm. Rather, you have to go through the Canadian bureaucracy, which they admit is time consuming (in excess of 60 days) according to their posting. Don't forget to have Canadian friends who have known you for a long time be willing to sign the paperwork saying you're a safe risk. If I went to Canada more than once every year and half I might look into this, but you'd have to plan a whole trip around the process. Obviously Canada is not a gun friendly country, by intent. That always cracks me up when I watch an episode of Flashpoint.

    Hey AdoptedTexan, please note my location and signature line. I am a Canadian and cross the border on a regular basis with my handguns, having all the necessary permits from my RCMP and your BATFE.

    Congrats to the wife.

    Now 2 out of every 34 million Canadians will have their permits...

    Do you have to apply in person for a non-res Utah permit?

    Glad to hear you'll be well-protected during your southern sojourns.

    So, while you're north of the border, how do you keep/bear your arms? Do they simply stay in the house, or is it so bad that you keep a Rent-A-Space locker in Blaine, WA, with a safe that contains all the goodies (arms)?

    Nope, there are instructors giving seminars in all 50 states. Then it's all handled by mail.

    I can keep them here, I just can't bear them until I cross the 49th parallel going South.

    Can you use them for defense, either in your house, on your property, or in the field ... so long as you don't conceal them? Or, is it locked down pretty tight, in terms of bearing arms at all? (Uncertain where Canadian gun laws go completely batty versus merely being utterly incomprehensible ... ie, like DC or Chicago, as opposed to nearly anywhere else in the USA.)
