I talked to a guy who gives cc class in missouri for a utah cc permit. This is new to me so I was hoping some of you could fill me in on this subject. He stated the class is only 3 hours, with no qualifying with the gun. he stated utah permit cost 65.00 per 5 years.. Has anyone else took this route? I guess you mail your paper work to DMV in utah and they amil you permit. Sounds like a good deal. Hope someone can fill me in on if this sounds correct, and if it would be legal in Missouri. Thanks

It is legal.

I don't think it is through the Utah DMV though. Just do a search for Utah ccw or go to the states homepage and you should be ably to find out the application info you need.

Here you go. This will get you started.

ETA: In before the "it's legal but you shouldn't crowd".

Legal and big business when I lived in Oregon.

Oregon will not reciprocate with any other state so only a few will recognize thiers. Folks there get the Utah permit so they can travel out of state with thier handguns.

Just curious as to why you would bother. The MO CCW permit is already recognized with every gun friendly state in the US

Less hassle and much less expensive renewal on the UT permit. Interestingly enough, my UT and MO permits both expired on exactly the same day this past year, so I got to go through both at the same time.

One advantage to a MO resident getting a MO permit is that some states only honor a resident's permit. IOW, if you came to Michigan, a MO resident with a UT permit is not legal to carry. But a MO resident with a MO permit is good-to-go.

Also, I don't know if KS honors UT (or if maybe it's another resident-only thing), but they do honor MO's. I lived in KC, so I was over on the KS side quite a bit.

The best reason to get a MO permit is simply numbers. As some one pointed out in another thread recently it's simply a matter of exercising the right, so that when someone looks at the statistics there is large portion of the voting populace that is active enough to go out and get there CCW. MO politicians aren't going to see your UT CCW.

I did it with 2 buddies so we could carry at 21.

Other than that reason, I'd just go with the MO permit. There are some differences in this state (something about school zones) that make it worth getting. Now, you can get both in one class. The class we took was for Florida, Missouri, and Utah, and since the qualification is good forever, I can get my MO permit at 23 without taking another class.

FL accepted my MO Heritage card as proof of training when I was 21, and anyone that has taken a MO Hunter Safety Course knows how much of a joke that is.

Thanks guys for the info. I wasnt seeking a Utah permit. I just saw a business that advertised gun permit classes . When I called they said it was for Utah permit. I didnt know you could do that . The thing that interested me was 3 hour class as to 8 hour class. I work real crazy long hours and 8 hour course dosent sound as good as a 3 hour one. I will check out the kansas laws since I am also in KC area.

Really? I'd still take the class knowing that, just for the legal aspect of carrying. It was pretty enlightening.

When I recently renewed my Utah CCW for another 5 years the fee was only $10.
