Utah CCW


Do you have your Utah non-resident CCW Permit?

The State of California does not have a reciprocal CCW agreement with the State of Utah, another words, your California CCW Permit is not honored in Utah and vice-versa.  By obtaining a Utah non-resident CCW Permit in addition to your California CCW Permit, you may legally carry a concealed handgun not only in California and Utah, but in 33 other states;  Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington State, West Virginia and Wyoming.

Unlike California, the State of Utah is a “Shall Issue” state that issues CCW Permits to non-Utah residents.  All that is required to obtain a non-resident CCW Permit is that you are 21 years of age or older, are not prohibited by any State or Federal Law from owning and/or possessing a firearm, and have successfully completed a Utah State approved firearms training course. 

GOLD COUNTRY FIREARMS is now a recognized firearms instructor for the State of Utah.  Our Utah CCW Training Certification is a one day, minimum eight hour course consisting of approximately 4 hours of classroom study followed by a “Live Fire” range qualification.  The range qualification course of fire is the same as the California and Nevada qualification course of fire.

All participants who successfully complete the course then apply for their non-resident CCW Permit simply by mailing their Utah CCW application packet to the State of Utah’s Department of Public Safety. Processing of an application takes between 45 to 60 days, and if no disqualifying factors a found, their permit is mailed to them.  A Utah non-resident CCW permit is valid for 5 years.
