    Hello All-

    I live in WA and was considering taking a combo UT/OR concealed carry course. Is there any downside to getting a UT permit, rather than a straight WA permit?

    Thanks

    Here in Oregon you don't need the Oregon one to get the UT permit. Also if the new law passes we won't need the UT permit. I think it's HR822..National Conceal Carry. It has a lot of steam to pass. The only hesitation is the cities that don't allow concealed carry period. But things might be changing...

    Oldbrass,
    Yah about a month ago they were talking about it in the news again. Saying how it is a big deal and that it has a good potential to pass. Surprising with all the gun control nuts.

    First I must say I hope the law doesn't pass as it will put the feds in our state's business.

    But as for the OP's question,the Utah permit is not good for a Washington resident in Washington
    You must have a Washington permit if you are a resident here.
    Stroll through these pages and you will find all you need to know.Then *bookmark* so you can go back to them as I have just done.And you will go back there lol
    Chapter 9.41 RCW: Firearms and dangerous weapons

    And when I took my Utah permit,I never heard anything about having my WA permit

    After you bookmark mjb's link, do the same with this one. It's a real handy reference, especially if you're thinking of crossing state lines.

    BTW, if you're mostly west of the Mississippi the AZ is now preferable to the UT.

    Well it's coming down in buckets here in 'the sun belt' so maybe I'll just go see about that first hand.

    This. The Arizona permit is the new Utah permit.

    you know you dont actually have to go to utah or az.to get the class right?...they have the utah classes here in oregon.
    just didn't know if you were kidding or not.

    also yes you still need a washington chl in addition to the utah license since wash,is not one of the 35 states it covers.
    i got my oregon chl then got my wash chl really easy,just fill out the papers and give them the cash(thats what they really want)and wait 30 days for it in the mail.

    WA=rain AZ=much less rain. I may just go there to get the permit.
    I have UT already. I think I'll come down to get the OR soon too.

    Wait, you mean it's raining in Sequim? Isn't that why all the retired people live there (as does my daughter and her family)?

    Here you go: from http://publicsafety.utah.gov/bci/documents/BCINewsletterApril2011.pdf posted above
    WA has a formal agreement with UT so you need the WA CPL first.
