    Let the wait begin

    I dropped my ccw application in the mail this morning. Now just gotta wait to get it. My buddy got his Utah ccw permit in a little less than 60 days so I'm not expecting it any sooner than that but will be stoked if it comes sooner. I've been OCing for a few weeks now but I can't carry loaded in Utah without a permit so I pretty much have "an expensive hammer" at 3 o'clock. Anyway I'm pretty excited so I thought I'd post haha.

    What? You can 'open carry' but it can't be loaded? Here I thought Utah was ahead of most other States in the common sense department. 'CTR'.

    Congrats quincy07!

    Utah will let you open carry loaded and ready IF you have a permit. Other wise it has to have "no round in the firing position, and the firearm is at least two "mechanical actions" from firing"...basically unloaded.
    So, it a little weird and almost like CA where you can OC an unloaded weapon.

    my instructor told us during the utah class that you could only be loaded and ready if you were CC, if you decided to OC even if you had the utah CCL you had to have 2 mechanical actions to fire... auto full mag empty tube, revolver 2 empty in the cylinder.
    any instructors out there that could clarify? can you OC legally loaded with A CCL in utah? also would it have to be a Utah CCL or any state they accept?

    Just curious myself. Could you carry with a thumb-safety "on" and no round chambered? Would releasing the safety and chambering a round be considered 2 mechanical actions?

    That's right. Kinda stupid I think but maybe the politicians think that the BG will see the firearm and leave you alone

    OCing with an unloaded gun is a good way to get shot.
