- Utah Concealed Firearm Permit (CFP)
This 4-hour combined Utah Concealed Firearms Permit (CFP) and Arizona Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP) class is a comprehensive training course designed to educate individuals on the laws and regulations surrounding the carrying of concealed firearms. The class covers essential topics such as the use of force, firearms safety, and the proper handling and storage of firearms, as well as the specific laws and requirements for obtaining a CWP and CFP in Arizona and Utah. Upon completion of the class, attendees will be eligible to apply for both permits, which allows them to legally carry a concealed firearm in about 32+ states!
Our classes are taught by industry-leading instructors who will provide students with the knowledge and skills they need to carry a concealed firearm safely.
The Arizona and Utah permits are open to residents of any state. You do NOT have to reside in, or visit the state of AZ or UT to apply for their permits and they can be applied for by mail.
In addition to the legal knowledge, you gain in this class, there are many benefits to getting your permit(s) and carrying a concealed firearm, they include but are not limited to:
- Increased Personal Safety: Carrying a concealed firearm allows individuals to protect themselves and their loved ones in potentially dangerous situations.
- Peace of Mind: Knowing that you have the ability to defend yourself and others can provide a sense of security and peace of mind.
- Legal Protection: In the event of a self-defense situation, having a permit can provide legal protection by demonstrating that the use of force was justified.
- Concealed Carry Reciprocity: Arizona and Utah have Concealed Carry Reciprocity agreements with many states, which means that permit holders can carry in those states with the same legal protection.

After receiving a Utah Concealed Firearm Permit (CFP), you are allowed to carry a concealed firearm in most places within the state of Utah and in other states that have reciprocity agreements with Utah. However, there are certain places where carrying a concealed firearm is not allowed, even with a CFP. These include:
- Federal buildings, such as post offices and courthouses
- K-12 schools, and school grounds
- Polling places on election day
- Nuclear power plants
- Game refuges, and wildlife management areas
- Indian reservations, unless you have written permission from the tribe
- Places where carrying firearms is prohibited by federal law
- Any place where the carrying of firearms is prohibited by state law or regulation
It's important to note that private property owners have the right to prohibit firearms on their property, so it's important to be aware of any posted signs or verbal notices indicating that firearms are not allowed.
It is also important to note that if you are a law enforcement officer or a retired law enforcement officer, you may have additional places where you can carry your firearm and you may have additional rights to carry your firearm.
Utah has Concealed Carry Reciprocity agreements with a number of other states, which means that if you have a Utah Concealed Firearm Permit (CFP), you may be able to legally carry your firearm in those states as well. However, it's important to check the laws of the state you're planning to visit or travel through to make sure you're in compliance with their laws, as laws and regulations may vary from state to state.
Utah has reciprocity agreements with the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Wyoming.
It's important to note that laws and regulations are subject to change, so it's important to check for updates and for any new agreements or changes in laws that may have been made. It's also important to check if the state you're planning to visit has any restrictions or additional requirements for non-residents and out-of-state permit holders.
It is also important to note that even with reciprocity agreements, laws and regulations may vary from state to state, so it's important to familiarize yourself with the laws of the state you're in and to follow them at all times.
