RECENT CHANGE IN ARIZONA LAW - Senate Bill 1108
Effective July 29, 2010, Arizona is now a constitutional carry state, which means everyone can carry concealed without a permit in Arizona, if it is not posted otherwise.
With that new law, we will be implementing new procedures and rules allowing other firearm training courses (including military training, any NRA firearms class, and some other states permits) in place of the 8hr CCW course previously required.
You have to provide proof of firearms training. Below is the full list of alternate documents we can accept.
