My Google-fu has failed me...

I'll be visiting my folks in a month or two over in Prescott AZ and was wondering, does the new no-permit required law apply to non AZ residents?

I dont think that law goes in effect until august. I dont think state residecy is an issue with the law.

Allow me to quote myself, quoting someone else...

I've noted that some people seem to think that you can conceal carry without a permit in AZ right now. You can't. Here are some answers.

Arizona constitutional carry law raises many questions from gun owners...here are some answers. (http://www.examiner.com/x-25100-Phoenix-Gun-Rights-Examiner~y2010m4d19-Arizona-constitutional-carry-law-raises-many-questions-from-gun-ownershere-are-some-answers)

# When does the new law take effect? The law will take effect 91 days after the close of the current legislative session. Since there is no fixed date for the session to end, the effective date of legislation can vary. Generally the session ends around the end of June and most laws will take effect around the end of September.

# Can I carry start carrying concealed now? Until the legislation actually takes effect, you would still need a valid Arizona CCW permit in order to carry concealed.

What if I get caught carrying a concealed weapon before the bill become effective? Until the new law is in place, carrying a concealed firearm without a permit is a Class 1 Misdemeanor and carries a penalty of up to 6 months in jail and up to a $2,500 fine.

Sounds like you need a Utah CCW permit... From the day you send in your request, expect a 2 month wait, that's what it took for mine.

Wear your gun outside your pants, for all the honest world to see. :eek::rolleyes::p

I've done that a few times in the past in the back woods there but never into town. I did see a guy at the Walmart in Prescott with not one, but two, Super Red Hawks holstered up on either side. I know he caught me admiring them, but probably didn't understand exactly why I was admiring them. Interesting place that AZ :)

I believe you can CCW after July 1st, even if you're from out of State.

Not without a valid CCW permit. See http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showpost.php?p=4251303&postcount=3
