Concealed Carry Permit News
Nevada and Arizona now have reciprocity
That means that now the easiest way to carry in Nevada (as a Washington State resident) is to get the Arizona non-resident permit. And our Utah permit class can help you get that — read on!
Previously, to carry in Nevada you had to get a Nevada non-resident permit (which you have to apply for in Nevada) or get the Idaho Enhanced permit (98 rounds of live fire training, and legal training by an Idaho LEO or Idaho lawyer). The Arizona permit process is much more pleasant — here’s a link to the Arizona permit site.
And another benefit of getting the Arizona permit is that you can also carry in New Mexico. About the only other way to get New Mexico (as a Washington resident) is to get the Florida non-resident permit. And you’ll need a Florida non-resident permit to carry in Florida as a Washingtonian anyway.
Here’s a breakdown of which permits get you what:
- WA resident permit (plus no-permit-required states) gets you 26 states
- UT non-resident permit plus WA resident permit gets you 32 states
- OR non-resident gets you OR (it’s the only way to get OR)
- AZ non-resident gets you NV and NM (easiest way to get NV, cheapest way to get NM)
- FL non-resident gets you FL and NM (only way to get FL)
- NH non-resident gets you NH and PA (easiest way to get PA, only way to get NH)
- ME non-resident gets you ME (only way to get ME)
Arizona does have a training requirement, but it is satisfied by a photocopy of your UT permit (or of a permit from another state that requires training).
Around the country (sort of) in 7 permits — bah!
That’s what the map looks like as of today, at least for Washington State residents. Thirty-nine states out of fifty. And getting permits from those remaining states is either impossible, unlikely, or extremely expensive. For more information, check out usacarry.com.
At least we make it easy to get your Utah permit! When you take our all-inclusive Utah class you also receive a “proof of training” certificate that you can photocopy for your applications to other states that require training (OR, FL, AZ). Check out InSightsTraining.com for the latest class dates and times.
Make this the “Summer of Training”
Don’t stop at Utah class. Forget that ‘staycation’ — take an “InSightsTraining-cation”! Shooting classes with the incomparable Greg Hamilton, tactics classes with the indomitable John Holschen, Tactical First Aid with the inimitable Dr. Mike Shertz.
Stay safe and we’ll see you in class!
