Can you legally be a resident in more than one state? I will be moving to Utah in about a month. They require that you be a resident for at least 5 years before you can obtain a conceal carry permit. However, they except Alabama pistol permits which I currently have. I was wondering if I could continue my residency in Alabama while living in Utah in order to loophole their CCW law. At least until I've been in Utah for 5 years.

The ATF considers you a resident of a state if you spend at least one weekend a month in that state, from what I remember when I was looking at the rules. You could keep an apartment or something in Alabama and get a state resident ID instead of a driver's liscense (you can only have one driver's liscense, a resident ID just says that you have an address in the state).

Good! I had been wondering the same thing regarding CA and AZ.

Well, this is all a moot point now. I reread the qualifications for getting a CCW permit in Utah, and you don't even have to be a resident to qualify. My mistake. I assumed that when they wanted to know your 5 year residential and work history, you had to be a resident of Utah for at least 5 years.
