    I received my Utah CCW in the mail today. Already have my Oregon CHL, but now I can carry across the river in Washington as well as 30-something other states. I mailed off my Arizona permit application on the same day, so I was curious to see who the winner would be. And the winner is Utah!
    Mailed: 9/12
    Recieved: 10/31
    Days elapsed: 49

    Come on Arizona. Come to Papa!

    What does Arizona get you that Utah doesn't?

    Big news is Nevada now recognizing Utah's permit. They didn't really play nice before.

    Yeah, I had just heard that too: that NM now honors UT. I applied for both because I took the Blackstone combo class that was on offer that was just a little bit (not much) more than the Utah only class. So, I figured "why not?" So, now that AZ no longer gives me NM, all it does now is give expanded carry rights like being able to carry into government buildings, etc. I like the idea of being legal to carry in as many states as possible just as a statement, not because I plan to visit each and every one of them.

    If Utah is now being honored in AZ and NV I'm a really happy camper. Are we sure of that?

    No, we are not sure of that. I tried looking it up, but no joy.
    The New Mexico DPS website has UT listed among the states they do not honor. Perhaps they just haven't updated their site yet, but for now I'll take that as a NO.

    Interestingly, until 2010 New Mexico did honor the Utah CCW.
    Then they stopped, saying that UT training requirements are too "lax" and "not up to NM standards". Yeah, sure...

    The reciprocity agreement that NM has with AZ is informal.
    The two states have no written agreement, but NM says they
    honor AZ without one, so you're good to carry there.

    As a Utah Instructor I always refer people to the Utah BCI website. Both Nevada and Arizona recognize Utah's permit. Note recognizing the permit and formal reciprocity are not the same thing.
    Here is the link
    Reciprocity with Other States | DPS – Criminal Identification (BCI)

    UPDATE: my Arizona CWP arrived today. UT and AZ applications were mailed off the same day, so in the race for permits UT beats AZ by two weeks. FYI

    Just keep in mind that even tho Utah reciprocates with Florida it doesn't apply to non-Utah residents! i.e. an Oregon resident with a Utah permit CANNOT carry concealed in Florida. :oops:

    When we travel to Yellowstone from Oregon this summer we went thru Wa, Idaho, Wyoming & Montana. I only carried in Or & Washington. All other states it was near but not on me. Some states seem to not cover non-residents but the sites weren't black and white. A little confusing.

    I am so glad my Utah out of state is accepted in Arizona and Nevada.
    I've had my CHL for many years. When I met my ex (when she was my gf lol) she wanted to get her CHL. So we decided to upgrade and get an out of state, mainly because we'd go to the English pit to shoot and we wanted to CC while in WA.

    I do like how Utah is cheaper for renewal and it's every 5 years and not 4 like Oregon.... and much cheaper.

    I have searched the Utah site and really not finding what I need to know. I want to get a Utah carry license so I can carry on my vacation in March in Nevada and Arizona.

    How is that accomplished here in Oregon ? I need a class I assume..and fingerprints I assume..

    Congrats!!! I just renewed my Utah this past summer. I have the application for AZ but I need to get started on it. It never hurts to have extra forms of ID.

    So when I got my Utah out of state, my gf at the time didn't have her Oregon CHL. So when she took a class, they had a package for Oregon resident and Utah out of state. So she did that and I went with her and just did the Utah out of state. I had to fill out the paperwork, get the certification for attending the class and I was finger printed in the class. I was given all the paperwork and I sent it in myself.
    Several weeks later I got my license in the mail. Then a short time later I moved, so I did the paperwork for an address change and got my license with the new address.... that took another several weeks.
