The multi-state CCW Class taught by VIP CCW Services meets the pre-requisite requirements for several state’s non-resident CCW Permits. Once I complete the class, I can immediately apply for non-resident CCW permits. Utah shall issue a permit within 60 days. Why would I want more than one non-resident CCW Permit?
- Reciprocity agreements and laws often change. The more multi-state CCW permits you have, the broader your coverage area is to carry a concealed firearm throughout the US. For example, if one of your state permits no longer has reciprocity or recognition with a particular state, your other permits may still have provide you coverage.
- Possessing more than one non-resident CCW permit increases the number of states you can legally carry a concealed firearm. For example, the Utah non-resident CCW Permit is not valid in New Mexico but the Florida non-resident CCW Permit and the Arizona non-resident permit is. Additionally, for example, the Utah and Arizona non-resident CCW permits are not valid in Florida. However by obtaining the Florida non-resident CCW Permit one can legally carry in Florida.
- Non-resident CCW permits have expiration dates and need to be renewed. By having multiple non-resident CCW permits, you minimize the risk of a permit expiring and losing CCW rights.
Q: Is there a difference in where one can carry (CCW) with a non-resident CCW Permit vs. resident CCW Permit?
Yes. For example, if you have a Utah resident CCW Permit, Florida will accept it via a reciprocity agreement with Utah, however, a Utah non-resident CCW permit is not valid for carry (CCW) in Florida. The solution if one wants to carry in Florida would be to obtain a Florida non-resident CCW permit via taking the multi-state CCW class from VIP CCW Services.
