The State of Utah will not issue a Concealed Firearm Permit if you have any alcohol related traffic offense in the last ten years. In Oregon the law is a bit different. You can NOT get a Concealed Carry Permit if you were convicted of a misdemeanor in the last four years. A DUII is a misdemeanor in Oregon if you have not had multiple offenses in a period of years.

The biggest obstacles to getting a permit is a criminal record. The Utah application has a series of questions about your eligibility. If you answer yes to any of these questions, you should contact the State of Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification at 801-965-4445 and get clarification.

The courses do not require you to pass a test in order to receive certification. The only reason that you would fail a course is if you repeatedly and consistently failed to observe firearm safety rules. There is a shooting challenge in the First Steps Pistol and Basic Pistol class. If you pass that shooting test, you will earn a Winchester/NRA marksmanship award.

You do not have to own a pistol to take any of our classes. We have a variety of pistols for you to use in class. You should hold off on purchasing a pistol until you know which firearm will serve your purpose the best.
