    hello i am looking to get my CCW permit. I am from michigan and when i was in nebraska i had a gentleman telling me about the "Utah permit" that allows you to legally carry in 30 states. I am from Michigan and if i researched properly... that is not one of the 30 states i can carry in with the Utah permit. I dont want to just carry in michigan as i do a fair amount of traveling. how can i obtain a 30 state permit, and do i have to do the utah permit course and the course in my own state? any help would be great, thank you.

    Michigan is one of those states that want to pretty much be by them self's when it comes to being a ccw permit holder. (just like Illinois and Ohio) Get your permit in Michigan and if you can get you one from another state that is in alliance with the others and that's all you can do

    2440, Michigan DOES recognize Utah permits- IF you are a resident of Utah. If I understand correctly, you are a resident of Michigan, but want to carry in states that may not recognize a Michigan permit? If so, Utah DOES issue non-resident permits. Yes, they require instruction. As does Michigan. A Google search of the Utah regs shows that there are insructors outside of Utah that are certified to teach the Utah standard course. One of them is in Michigan.

    Why not contact him, explain where you are headed, see if he has suggestions, if one course can meet requirements of both states, etc.

    Good luck- C3shooter

    Sometime it takes multiple permits to get the coverage that you want. One thing for sure, you want a permit from your residence state as that is the only permit that several other states will recognize ... a "residence permit". If you need to bolster coverage you can look at any number of other state permits that will be issued by mail. Utah requires training by a Utah certified instructor, for instance. PA does not. Nor do several other states. handgunlaw.us is a great place for information on states that will issue non resident permits and where they are good. FL for instance will only recognize a permit issue by FL or a permit issued by your home state.

    For all those interested in a Utah issued CC permit, a great site that provides lots of information is UtahConcealedCarry.Com • Index page You should be able to answer just about any questions you have about it.

    One thing of note about the Utah permit, though, is it does not require a shooting competency test. Because of that missing requirement, Nevada has recently stopped recognizing the Utah permit. If your state requires a shooting test, the Utah permit may not be the best choice.

    Would it not be grand if that interstate reciprocity bill had passed recently instead of being lost by only two lousy votes? That would have meant that ANY concealed carry permit would have been recognized in all states. Just too much balogna for those of us that travel interstate regularly.
