Do I also need to obtain a permit from the state where I reside?

Answer: In many cases, you will need to have your home state's concealed weapon permit prior to mailing in your application for a Utah permit. A prerequisite to obtaining a Utah permit is to obtain your home state's concealed weapon permit if you live in a state that recognizes the Utah permit (e.g. Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin). You do not need to have your resident permit prior to taking our class. You will just need it prior to mailing in your Utah application (which you have one year after the class to do). If you live in a state that does not recognize the Utah permit (e.g. Illinois, Oregon, Nevada, California, New Mexico, Maryland, Kansas, Wisconsin, Illinois, New York and New Jersey), then you do not need to have your resident state permit prior to obtaining a Utah permit.  Please also be aware that many states require residents of their state to obtain a permit from their home state prior to carrying a concealed firearm in their home state.  For example, the only legal way for an Iowa resident to carry a concealed firearm in Iowa is with an Iowa permit (i.e. Iowa residents cannot use a non-resident Utah or Arizona permit to carry in Iowa - although they can use the Utah and Arizona permits to carry tons of other places).  Some common examples of states that require their residents to have a permit from their home state in order to carry in their home state include include Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska and Wisconsin (there are many other states like this).  Our classes will satisfy the training requirements to obtain your resident permit in most of the states we teach classes in, please see our class pages or call us for details.
