Utah Permit? Or is something else better?
#1
I think I already know the answer, but I want to get input from people who know. I live in Western PA and I venture into Ohio quite often. I hate having to disarm before going into some of the most violent places in Ohio. I'm not really concerned about other states.

So...is the Utah permit really the cat's meow? Or is there a better permit out there? I was looking into the AZ permit, but handgunlaw.us says that the non-resident permit isn't valid in Ohio.

There's a place nearby that offers a UT class for $75 for everything. Another local shop does it for $85.

Any other thoughts? Thanks in advance!

Apparently the AZ-OH thing you mentioned is being looked into, so that OH will accept AZ non-res permits, but until that is, if ever, resolved, UT IS your best bet to carry in OH.

If your travels ever take you to WA, it is easy to get a license there and OH will accept that. However you must apply in person in WA.

I have lots of family in eastern Ohio. I decided to get the Utah CFP in order to cover me there and about 80% of the rest of the country. Took the course, got printed and photographed, sent in application and had card in the mail almost 2 months to the date they received it. Good for 5 years and easy to renew.

Florida gets you Ohio and accepts prior military service and state-run hunter safety courses to fulfill the training requirement. I think the license itself is more expensive, but I think it's good for 7 years.

Still, in the long run Utah is much cheaper. AFTER the class, prints and photo, $51 for a non resident new application and $15 for renewal.

For FL the initial cost may be less if you have an accepted form of training, however, FL requires new prints with each renewal and is $112 for new applications and $102 for renewals.

Thanks, fellas...

I charge $80. If you can get 20 people together for a class, yours is free.

Oh, and it's pronounced "super redhawk." Not "speer hawk," or my personal favorite, "spider hawk."

I asked on an OH forum about any updates on this...the one response I got was:

Quote:I doubt the AZ thing is going to get fixed unless someone gets the AG office to revise the agreement. Good luck with that.


Mayhap we need a letter/email writing campaign to OH AG DeWine
