    Mail-in Applications

    Does anyone know of any CCW licenses or permits that con be obtained without traveling (i.e. by mail)?

    I am already licensed in the two states I spend most of my time in, so it's hard to justify driving several hours solely to apply. But I would apply to any that didnt require applying in person.

    Thanks.

    I know VA, FL and PA can be done by mail. Not sure about TX and UT.

    Handgunlaw seems to indicate that TX is a yes.

    UT seems to require a UT instructor class. Which may mean travel there may be req.

    Not sure I want to try FL with their horrendous backlog

    I guess what I was really looking for is one that is good in NV, which means AK, AR, KS, LA, MI, NE, OH, TN, or WV.

    NV requires in-person application, and the nearest NV sheriffs office is a 10hr drive from where I live.

    I did FL by mail. UT is still by mail. Just find a UT approved instructor in your area.

    That's good to know. AFAIK, it's still the best license in the country...

    You can apply for New Hampshire non-res and Maine non-res through the mail as well.

    Kansas issues resident only

    Kansas issues only to residents, but recognizes at least 22 other states presently.

    There are several Utah certified instructors who teach the Utah required class in Kansas.

    The states you mentioned that have reciprocity with NV do not issue a non-resident permit. FL and UT used to be honored by NV, but no longer.

    PA is a good non-resident permit to have and easy to obtain.

    Well, I guess I'll be OCing in NV next year when I head down there.

    Also, Im looking at getting a UT permit. There's an instructor giving a UT class near me next week. If I get a UT, I'll just let my WA lapse, as AFAIK the UT covers all the same states and more...

    PA's permit is a dream of a process. It will get you some of the states that you asked about. It's literally 2 pages. First page is the form with all the questions. Then you need to send in a second page that has a copy of your driver's license and also a copy of one of your CCW permits. Then cut a check for $26 bucks and in 5-7 days you'll have it.

    Check out Sherrif Nau's website where you can get the permit info.

    I've heard some bad endings to OCing on the strip in Vegas. It's legal but look out!
