    Yesterday afternoon I sent in my completed application to obtain a Utah CCW.

    :bowdown:

    The process was relatively easy.

    I took an 8-hour Level 1 Defensive Tactical Handgun course which covers everything from the 5 Count Draw to tactical loading and unloading of magazines to shooting while on the move.

    COST: $30 with voucher purchased from the gun show. $90 normally.

    Overall, very fun and informative course. I'll include photos at the end of this post.



    After the completion of the course, I met with a certified CCW instructor who spent an hour explaining things from concealing your weapon to legal shot placement (where to shoot the threat to keep you from a lawsuit).

    I kind of lucked out with this instructor because he only had an hour to go through the material so he skipped a lot of the boring shit. At the end of the CCW course, he provides a certificate as well as other paperwork needed for the Utah CCW.

    COST: $100 cash or check.

    In order to have a completed Utah CCW application, you need the following:

    -Successful completion of a Defensive Tactical Handgun course ($30)
    -Successful competition of a certified Utah CCW course ($100)
    -Filled out application for the Utah CCW with approval from the instructor (he will stamp the application)
    -Notarized application ($10.00)
    -Blue Fingerprint card ($20.00)
    -Photocopy of your drivers license
    -1 2x2 inch passport quality photo
    -A check for $65.25
    ($65.25)

    After you have completed all of the following, you place all the paperwork into a packet and mail if off. If your background clears, you should receive your Utah CCW in about 60 days.

    The Utah CCW is good for 5 years and will work in the following states:

    Alabama
    Alaska
    Arizona
    Arkansas
    Colorado
    Delaware
    Florida
    Georgia
    Idaho
    Indiana
    Kentucky
    Louisiana
    Michigan
    Minnesota
    Mississippi
    Missouri
    Montana
    Nevada
    New Hampshire
    New Mexico
    North Carolina
    North Dakota
    Ohio
    Oklahoma
    Pennsylvania
    South Dakota
    Tennessee

    The beginning of the course involved checking your firearms, paying the course fees, and setting up your equipment.

    I was target #18 for the day. After the first hour, we were already heading out to the shooting range, learning the 5 Count Draw technique. I could go all day explaining everything I learned but I’m not. Let’s just say I am a better shooter than I ever was before.

    Eric, Phu Pham, and Neil during training. Oh, and by the way, I got mad sun burned. It was so hot and bright outside—I didn’t put on sun screen like a jackass.

    Close range shooting.

    Phu Pham doing the barricade drill. Basically, you stand behind a barricade (can be represented as a door or wall), draw your weapon, slowly back up, and engage your targets. Pretty knarly stuff.

    Wow, much more going on in your class than the AZ ccw class I took. We had at least 5 hours of class/written test time.

    So now that the Asians have taken over the shooting ranges does that mean the lines at Disneyland are shorter now?

    Negative. Because of population growth, there are still the same amount, if not more at Disneyland.

    Cool edu? Nice pics, I wish they made this a nationwide deal for all CCW'ers or gun owners in general. Good on you for doing the responsible thing and getting some training.

    Lucky bastard. The only shooting I got to do besides the 'qualifying' was some point shooting drills from the hip in a quick draw. The class was informative though, I learned a lot just about gun/carry laws.
