Utah Gun Permit For 30+ States

With the Supreme Court ruling last week that the Second Amendment’s guarantee of an individual’s right to bear arms applies to state and local laws, Utah is a popular player in Americans’ efforts to legally obtain firearms. The state is issuing what has become the permit of choice for many gun owners.

Utah’s permit is relatively inexpensive and is broadly accepted, and the requisite safety class can be taken anywhere. Utah’s licenses are valid in more states than most, too. By passing the class and the background check, and paying a $65.25 fee, the applicant receives what many consider to be the most prized gun permit in the country. Permits are good for five years and cost $10 to renew.

  • Another $25 for adding Florida CCW application (includes both states – Utah and Florida)
  • You don’t have to be a resident of Utah or Florida!
  • The Utah CCW and Florida CCW gun permits allow concealed carry in 31 states and the list is growing!  (See Note 1 below for specifics)
  • The combined Utah CCW/Florida CCW course is completed in only 4 hours in a classroom.

  • Small class size to give you more attention.
  • A valuable credential for professionals and ordinary citizens:

    • Multi-state security guard
    • Businessmen who travel

A concealed carry gun permit (CCP/CFP/CCW) is a valuable credential for any multi-state traveler.  Or if you are someone who is concerned about disaster preparedness.  Remember Hurricane Katrina when many law-abiding citizens had to vacate New Orleans to different states.  Imagine how much peace of mind they would have had with a legal permit to carry a concealed firearm in whatever new state they were displaced to.  That concealed carry handgun may save the lives of you and your family in an emergency situation.

Note 1: With the Utah CCW, you get Minnesota, which you don’t get with the Florida CCW. Also, with the Utah permit, note that the following states only accept it if you are a Utah resident: Colorado, Florida, Michigan, New Hampshire. If you have the Utah permit and not a resident of Utah, you’ll need the Florida permit to carry in Florida. With a Florida CCW permit, you get Kansas; you also get South Carolina but only if you are a Florida resident. Please note that this information can change at any time and the permit holder or applicant should check the appropriate state’s carry laws. Disclaimer: All of these rules can change at anytime and you need to check with the respective states before you carry in those states.
