The last few months have brought two changes to the Utah Concealed Carry Permit Reciprocity. For some time now Utah’s CCW Permit has been coveted for it’s large number of honoring states. According to the Utah BCI 58% of the applications for Utah Concealed Carry permits are from out of state residents.
Sadly however, Nevada who only just accepted the Utah CFP has now decided to stop honoring this popular permit. This makes Nevada the only state that is adjacent to Utah that doesn’t honor it’s permit. W. Clark Aposhian, the head of the Utah CCW Board admits that Nevada requires it’s ccw students to prove proficiency on the range in order to obtain a ccw permit. As Utah doesn’t not require live fire as part of the concealed carry education Nevada was reluctant to honor the permit.
The good news comes from the East. Nebraska has signed an official reciprocity agreement with Utah. Utah concealed carry permits in the hand of residents and non-residents alike are now honored in Nebraska.
