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.
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.
Yep, I'm a member also :-)
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms . . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes . . . Such laws... serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man - Cesare Beccaria
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 is crazy! I could not imagine having to put up with stuff like that.
The Dalai Lama:"If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun."
Instructor said as long as you had the permit you could carry loaded with OC
OCing with an unloaded gun is a good way to get shot.
