i got a utah permit for various reasons, one being it has more states than texas. after i got it i found out that some states don't honor non-resident permits. florida being one of them. even though florida honors the utah permit mine is no good in florida because it is a non-resident permit. there are a few more states that don't honor them but florida is the only one i know of off hand. i find this kinda funny because florida gives out non-resident permits. you need to check into that before you decide on which one you go with. if i have read that information wrong someone please correct me on this because i would like to carry in florida.
