Default best state to get a non-resident permit?

I was planning on getting an AZ permit, but then I was at a range that had flyers advertising a Utah-compliant course that was 4 hours and $79, including finger prints.

they also advertised a multistate CCW course, which is $375, two days long, 16 hours total, and will work for obtaining CA, UT, AZ, VA and FL permits.

I've seen posts here on calguns where people state they are getting both AZ and UT permits - why would someone want both? if there is a good reason to get both, is the UT permit approved by the AZ Department of Public Safety? Reason I ask is because AZ's permit requirements state that one of the ways to demonstrate firearm competence is by providing proof of permit from another State approved by AZ DPS. that would potentially allow me to avoid paying the extra money for an AZ compliant course and seems like the cheapest avenue to get both permits.

is there a good reason to spend the extra $300 and two full days to take the multistate course?

for what it's worth, I travel to AZ at least 5 or 6 times a year for work (although I probably wouldn't bring a handgun with me even if I did have a permit, as i am not a morning person and it would be a PITA to check a firearm before for a 6am flight). I have never been to Utah, although I will be driving thru there this summer and will be carrying guns in my vehicle.

I received my AZ non res in about two months, start to finish. Request the packet, get finger prints done, print proof of safety training, $60 check and send it all in. If you're a veteran you can use your DD-214 as proof of safety training. Reciprocity for AZ is great:

Hopefully someone else can chime in why they have AZ and UT, because I'm curious as well.

Edit: I noticed you can get Minnesota and Washington with the UT permit, but lose New Mexico and South Carolina, so I guess you'd just gain two states if you have both.

Las Vegas will also issue non-resident CCW.

Here is one place, of course I have no connection.

For my reasons... I ride my motorcycle all over the west a couple times a year. AZ covers NM (UT doesn't) and UT covers WA (AZ doesn't). Oregon I'll have to appear in person when I'm there, with a CA permit then I'll have the entire west covered except CO.

That's actually a tad better, you get FL that way and AZ is covered. The chances of finding myself in FL is pretty remote, although I would like to go out there for Daytona Bike Week one of these years.

A TN permit is accepted almost everywhere.

https://www.tn.gov/safety/article/hgreciprocity


https://www.tn.gov/safety/article/hgqualifications

Fun fact: If you're a Veteran with documentation of firearms qualification/training in the military on your DD214 or other military documentation, the "department approved Handgun Safety Course" requirement doesn't apply to you.

Tennessee is an awesome state all the way around, the problem AFAIK is they don't issue non-resident permits unless you spend roughly half your time there in a second home or on business.

Read the link. If there's a residency requirement, it's not mentioned there.

It's a little confusing, but it appears (to me) one must be employed there to obtain a non-resident permit.

https://www.buckeyefirearms.org/what...ident-licenses

http://tennesseefirearms.com/resources/reciprocity/

http://www.handgunlaw.us/documents/N...entPermits.pdf

The reciprocity other states have with Tennessee appears second to none. I think if it were easily doable we'd be talking about Tenn in the same way we're always touting AZ/UT/FL etc.

For those in the San Diego area. I did AZ, 1 day class.

The only bummer is I cannot get CO. But a nonresident can carry loaded in the car in CO. Just not on person in public.

My wife got her AZ CCW and I got Florida, they both are good in mostly the same states, but I paid a little more for the Florida non resident CCW since it is good for 7 years instead of only 5. Also the AZ permit don't has a picture but the Fl permit has your picture on it. My wifes AZ permit was here in 7 weeks and my Fl permit took 10 weeks but worth the wait since it is good for 7 years. Also you can get your Virginia permit online very easy!

FL was easy and last's 7 years....on a side note I check my firearm every time I fly and you only need to add 5 extra mins to check in. Very simple to do....I carry everywhere I can. I figure the minute I don't have it I'll need it

also considering the AZ or the multi state one...

I only travel to AZ and if a national carry ever comes true maybe the stars will align?

Anyday now. FYI, send them an email with you name address and DOB and they will give you a status update within minutes. I did this last Thursday and they told me it was printing and would be mailed out that day.

I have FL, really fast and super easy if you're an Honorably Discharged Vet. The whole process took less than a month.
