    Utah in everyday use

    For those of those who live in Utah, would you please tell me how you see everyday practical carry? There is always a difference between the letter of the law and how the police and people implement that..

    Trafficstops, printing, and for those in school, the carrying in school part..While trying to figure out the hole state thing..

    What is the permit fee? For how long is the permit valid? Do Utah have Castle doctrine? And how are the shooting ranges i Salt Lake City?

    How are the IPSC and IDPA environment? Many members and activity?

    Thanks for all the practical info in and about Utah..

    If you are serious about wanting to carry a concealed weapon, or even to have a weapon in the home, I would ask around about who (in your area) offers a class in carrying a concealed weapon and getting the CCW permit.
    You will find that a good instructor will be able to answer all your questions about the weapon, its carry, the associated legal aspects and responsibilities, and the genreal Do's and Don'ts.
    Rather than read on-line comments, I'd prefer to have a more 'personal' interaction with a professional.

    Only my opinion...of course.

    Too many questions to answer all, follow the link and read it, all the information is on the BCI website. If there's something you dont understand after taking the CCW class, the DC members would be more than happy to help you better understand. Like mentioned, find an instructor and take the class. Most of your questions would be answered there.

    Utah has no laws restricting open carry. So if your gun prints, or your shirt blows up in the wind, no big deal legally. You don't even need a permit for open carry as long as the gun is unloaded (two mechanical actions before it goes bang, ie safety off then rack the slide)
    A few years ago, the question of ccw at a University came up and there was a big hullubaloo about it. It was decided that people with ccw permits are allowed to carry at University. They weren't willing to go so far as to allow open carry on campus, though, but i know of no arrests, just warnings.
    For traffic stops, you are required to tell the officer about your ccw status.
    I'm a student at the University of Utah and i carry my gun with me when I'm at school.
    The fee for the permit is $85 if you provide your own fingerprint card and passport quality photo, ten bucks more if you drive out to the office to have them do it.
    For a good instructor, i recommend Larry Correia. He goes through legal stuff in his class as well as different situations and the risks involved with using your gun, as well as the required safety lecture.
