    I reside in vancouver wa. Do I need the washington state concealed carry permit to get the utah ccw? Can i skip getting wa ccw and just get the utah permit. How difficult is it to get the out of state oregon ccw permit? What classes to take and with whom? Thanks for any help in this matter.

    You need a wa permit to carry if you are a WA resident, and its also the easiest permit to get, no class, just walk in get printed fill out the paperwork and you should see it in a few weeks, mine took 6 days from the day i was fingerprinted.

    <see updated information in post 11>; however, the Utah permit is not valid in OR or WA (if you are a WA resident). I got my OR permit through Mult Co and have renewed it 3 times without any problems.

    Good luck and welcome to NWFA.

    UT and FL are recognized in the most states and can be issued to non-state residents.

    Concealed Weapon Reciprocity

    Washington concealed pistol licenses will be recognized in the following states, and concealed weapons licenses issued in the listed states will be recognized in Washington State, so long as the handgun is carried in accordance with Washington law.

    Arkansas Mississippi Ohio
    Florida* Missouri Oklahoma
    Louisiana North Carolina Utah
    Michigan* North Dakota**

    NOTE: Handguns must be carried in accordance with the law of the state you are visiting. Be sure to check the laws of the other state before traveling there with your handgun.

    * These states do not recognize non-resident concealed pistol licenses issued by Washington state.

    Having cut and paste all that..I thought hmm how can I save a few bucks...Just get the utah permit and now more states recognize my permit 26 I think. If Utah issues permit it will be valid in washington state too.

    Concealed pistol license &#8212; Reciprocity.

    (1)(a) A person licensed to carry a pistol in a state the laws of which recognize and give effect in that state to a concealed pistol license issued under the laws of the state of Washington is authorized to carry a concealed pistol in this state if:

    (i) The licensing state does not issue concealed pistol licenses to persons under twenty-one years of age; and

    (ii) The licensing state requires mandatory fingerprint-based background checks of criminal and mental health history for all persons who apply for a concealed pistol license.

    (b) This section applies to a license holder from another state only while the license holder is not a resident of this state. A license holder from another state must carry the handgun in compliance with the laws of this state.

    (2) The attorney general shall periodically publish a list of states the laws of which recognize and give effect in that state to a concealed pistol license issued under the laws of the state of Washington and which meet the requirements of subsection (1)(a)(i) and (ii) of this section.

    29 states.And the funny thing is,most of those states don't see a loaded gun in a vehicle as a concealed weapon.Only when you get out of the car.
    In Washington a loaded gun in the car is concealed,BTW

    Check out Handgunlaw.us, it's a good reference for each state's laws and seeing where each state's permits are good for.

    Unfortunately, this isn't true anymore.
