    Utah non-res

    OK, since we have a NH non-resident thread running already I'll drop another one. I was going through the map at the website that was posted a while back listing all the states that have reciprocity with each other. (Can someone please post that again? I can't believe I didn't bookmark it and now can't remember which thread it was in.)

    Anyway, it looks like Utah coupled with my Ohio license would give me the best coverage across the states. Does anyone have any experience with getting a non-resident license from Utah? I've heard of people using NH or FL but not Utah.

    Thanks.

    You must take a class from a Utah certified instructor. Your Ohio permit and training might be enough to get a Florida permit without additional training. You could contact them and see.

    Acctually I just checked and you would have 32 states with an Ohio/Utah permit and 33 with a Fl/Ohio permit. You pick up PA with FL.

    Seconded that you must take a UTAH CCW class.

    Maps are available at Handgunlaw.us. Utah does require a course under a certified Utah instructor. Handgunlaw.us probably has a link to the Utah BCI site with all the requirements. For a while you could take the Utah class online, but effective in May 2006 they stopped that. I don't know if they have reinstituted that or not. I took my class online in April '06.

    Got one.

    Last year, I applied for and received the Utah non-res license. It was fairly simple. Take a course covering Utah's laws and requirements; get a fingerprint card from your police or sheriff's dept; get a couple of passport photos; apply via mail. You'll either be approved or not. Assuming you're legit, don't have a background to be feared and your references check out, you shouldn't have a problem.

    Utah a good one to have

    Utah is one of the best non resident CCW permits to have, and is recognized in many states - I believe close to 30. Utah is also pretty aggressive about seeking out new reciprocity, so the number will probably grow.

    You can get the permit without going to Utah, but you have to find a Utah approved instructor in your area and take the course they require. Utah instructors are scattered around the US, and concentrated in the larger metro areas, of course. Go to the Utah BCI website and look at the list of approved instructors.

    I think I'm pretty well covered with my FL RESIDENT's permit.

    I have FL and UT. They are both great. The good thing about UT as opposed to FL is that they do not require new prints every 5 years and only $10 and a photo for renewal.

    Just an FYI... backlog of applications is now causing a 100+ day wait to get a Utah permit. It will only get worse until some funding issues are worked out. There are now more non-resident applications than resident applications. Makes it difficult for residents who used to get a permit in about 68 days but such is life.

    I called today to check on my Utah application that I mailed back in March. I was told that non-resident applications were now taking 6-8 months to process. The new procedure is to process all resident applications first. I agree that residents should take priority, but I was shocked to hear how long it now takes to process non-resident applications.

    Ah-hah! That's the rub! Applied back in late April. Glad not be in any rush, and UT residents should get priority. We'll see which takes longer: Utah non-res. CCL or Colt archival services. Bet Utah will win!

    I must have got lucky and got in before the "bulge" I applied form my UT in Jan of this year and got it early May. And that was after a SNAFU with the instructor not using the most current form.

    +1 for UT!

    I applied in Dec 06-got it March 07. My instructor was UT certified so I got FL/UT and NV all at once! NV you have to apply in person, 3-4 hr wait. So what-better than no CCW!
