I just took a Utah CCW class and passed. I am expecting my permit in 2 - 3 months. I plan on taking a road trip. I noticed Nevada was listed - what is the deal with casinos and CCW's? How should I look up laws in other states that effect my CCW?

Until Jan 1, 2008 you will still need to register your guns at the LVMPD. It's called a "Blue Card". They verify your ownership and give you a laminated card with your name Gun Mfg. and serial #.

I carried my entire time in Vegas. In casino's and elsewhere. Not to worry.

So after Jan 1, 2008 I would not need a blue card? Just thinking about the way the CCW process works I doubt I would have mine by then.

You can tell about when to expect it by checking http://bci.utah.gov/index.html, where you find the date they are processing currently. They put each application in the pile, resident or out of state, according to the date they cash your payment. When they are processing applications on the date your payment was cashed, it won't be long afterwards that your permit arrives, assuming you have everything in order, clean background, etc.

I was very impressed with the process they use, and Florida too. It's a miracle how smoothly things can run when you want to.

It took a little over 90 days to receive mine. I spend alot of time in Nevada & Arizona. It's a very large responsibility to carry but I'm going to feel a tad safer now.

My instructor told me to always remember two things.

1. "Every round that exits the end of the barrel has a lawyer attached to it."

2. "IDOL = In Defence of Life ONLY"

Having a non-resident Utah permit gives you nothing in California. However, if you travel from time to time to Nevada, Arizona, Utah and certain other states (some 29 in total number) you can then carry a concealed pistol there.

If you never travel to these states, or do travel but aren't interested in carrying there, don't bother. However, otherwise a Utah permit is a good thing to have.

A Florida permit is as easy to get, and nearly as worthwhile. It does add Florida to the Utah valid list, but it removes Washington State and Nevada. Your choice.

Other states' ccw permits tend to be harder to get and/or more expensive and/or lesser coverage. Utah and Florida give the most bang for the buck. Your only reason to get any other state's CCW permit is a) if that state offers non-resident permits and b) that state doesn't recognize Utah or Florida non-resident permits and c) you spend enough time there to merit it.

No other state's CCW permits will help you get a Cali CCW, and the more you have of them, the more it might hurt your chances, as it makes you look like a CCW collector/mall ninja.

Camping, Road Trips, Vegas (the wife likes it, I don't), Vacations - I am in a situation where I cannot risk putting my wife in danger she is mildly disabled. I can run - she can't. It makes me feel better to have a firearm.

If you have a Florida and Utah permit you can carry concealed in a little over 80% of the US land mass (including Alaska)... 60% of US states.

Just a note on casinos and other businesses. They do have the right to prohibit you from carrying on their property. Many will even post signs stating that they do not allow firearms. If you are truly carrying concealed, it should not be a problem because they won't see it. If they do see it, they can ask you to leave. Depending on the casino's policies, they may ask you to put it in your vehicle, or possibly check it in.

You have the right to decide who is armed on your property, and so do businesses. Yes, you could organize a boycott of those casinos, but the reality is that they are making tons of money and can afford to lose your business.

Darn, thanks for reminding me I'm waiting on my UT permit. I was doing a good job of ignoring it. According to their website they're processing permits received on 4 OCT at the moment, and judging by my visa bill they received mine on 20 OCT. Looks like I probably won't receive it in time to carry in TX over Christmas with the family. :(

That's if he's going to CCW in Vegas for an extended time (forgot how many days), but he doesn't have to do that in other areas of Nevada.

Got mine - I might do New Years in Vegas. So I don't need to register anything or fill out any paper work? I will not be staying long.

They want you to do it within 24 hours. If you get stopped without the BC, they will escort you to the closest office to get it registered.

I mailed my application Oct. 23rd. My check was cashed Nov. 6th and I received my Utah CFP in the mail today. It was sent out on the 27th. Looks like Utahs Dept. of Public Safety is processing apps. faster than their website says. One interesting quote from the form letter that accompanied my CFP: "This permit is valid contingent on a satisfactory criminal history report being received from the FBI. You will be notified if the fingerprints are rejected, or of a revocation if the FBI criminal history report contains information of a disqualifying nature."

That quote has been on there for years. It was sent with my permit years ago.
