Concealed Carry Reciprocity Updates
Nevada and Utah have reciprocity, plus nice Florida updates
Somewhat old news, but fresher than my older concealed carry post below. As of July 2016, Utah and Nevada have reciprocity for resident and non-resident permits. Maine went to (mostly) constitutional carry — you can carry in most places without a permit, but not in as many places as a ME permit holder can. Also, as of the end of 2015, Minnesota stopped recognizing the Utah permit (and nearly all others, too!). And Florida reduced their application fees.
Keep your fingers crossed for New Mexico to come back into the fold. As of now, two ways to get NM are to get an Arizona permit or a Florida permit:
- An Arizona permit could be a replacement for a UT permit: AZ gets you the same states as UT, plus NM.
- Florida is a 2-for-1 deal: Florida does not recognize WA or UT-non-resident permits, so you need to get a FL non-res to carry there; and as a bonus you get to carry in NM.
- Actually, at the moment, FL could be a replacement for both UT and AZ since it gets you all their states, NV and NM, and Florida. And it looks like FL just lowered their fees — $102 intial, $92 renewal for a 7-year permit.They also dropped the notarization requirement.
It’s a frequently shifting map, however, so all this could change next month.
In any case, our Multi-State/Utah Permit Class gets you everything you need to get a UT permit, or the proof-of-training certificate you need to get AZ or FL (or OR). Check the website for more upcoming dates. Even better, mention this blog post when you call to register and get a special price of $99 on the class!
