    UTAH CCW class

    Hi!

    I just completed the class with TAKEAIM TRAINING (Home) and just wanted to say that the course was well done. I expected it to be boring since it naturally had to go over a lot of safety rules that I had heard a number of times already but the instructor did an excellent job of explaining things in a very practical and straightforward fashion. Instead I found myself enjoying the course a lot!

    For those it might benefit: The Utah permit is valid in NC and you can get it without being a citiizen which you would have to be in order to get a NC permit. Worth considering if that applies 2 u.

  3. Could you tell me the advantage of getting a CC permit from Utah? Is this one easier to get?

    It is easier to get. The NC permit for example requires that the training course has a mininum of 8 hours, it costs more initially and on renewal, too.

    In this case the course was done in about 2 hours and it did not require range time. Now, please don't get me wrong, I think range training is great. However, if the people taking the course have been shooting for some time already and have already taken other training courses it becomes a bit redudandant to take them to the range again and start from zero one more time.

    Essentially the Utah permit is as simple and straightforward and inexpensive as they could make it and I appreciate that attitude. Permits are far too often just seen as a way to milk off the applicant .

    There are other permits that may have better reciprocity or offer other perks but if you're looking for a no nonsense permit and are on budget I would consider this one.
