What states does Utah have reciprocity with?

In accordance with U.C.A. 76-10-523, Utah will honor a permit to carry a concealed firearm issued by another state or county.

Of the states below that have formalized reciprocity or recognition with Utah, there are some states that will only accept the Utah concealed firearm permit so long as the permit holder is a resident of Utah.

 It is the responsibility of all Utah concealed firearm permit holders to know and understand the applicable firearm laws of the states within which they plan to visit or venture. For information regarding firearm laws of other states, please contact the respective authority within that state.

Although there are many states that will recognize the Utah concealed firearm permit, the State of Utah has formal reciprocity (written agreement) with the following states (Click on the name of the state for further information):

  • Please check the Utah BCI site for the most up to date list we do not bear any responsibility should this list be out dated If I get stopped by a police officer, do I, as a permit holder, have to tell the officer that I have a gun in my possession? Although there is no legal requirement to identify yourself to a law enforcement officer, it is recommended to do so. If an officer finds or sees a gun on your person during their contact with you, and you have not identified yourself as a permit holder in legal possession of a firearm, the officer may assume you are carrying the gun illegally and may take defensive action. For the safety of all involved, it is recommended to immediately identify yourself to the officer as a permit holder in possession of a handgun. This action gives the officer some assurance they are most likely dealing with a law abiding citizen.
  • As a permit holder, exactly, where can I carry or not carry a handgun? The concealed firearm permit only exempts the permit holder from three laws: carrying a concealed and loaded firearm in a vehicle; carrying a concealed firearm on your person and; carrying a loaded and concealed firearm on or about school property. All other state and federal laws still apply. Such as, you may not carry a firearm in secured areas of an airport and you may not carry a firearm in secure federal buildings. These areas should always be posted. But please be aware of these restrictions in case they are not posted. What about private businesses? Can they post signs prohibiting someone from carrying a gun into their business even though the person has a concealed firearms permit? Naturally, private property owners may apply whatever restrictions they want. Whether or not these restrictions violate one’s constitutional rights is for the civil courts to decide. But the only statutory restrictions on a permit holder are secured areas such as airports and federal buildings.
  • May I carry my loaded and concealed firearm into a bar or other drinking establishment? There is nothing in state statute that prohibits permit holders from being in a bar with a concealed firearm. However, it is illegal to be intoxicated and in possession of a firearm. The level of intoxication that is considered illegal is the same standard as when driving a car. (.08 B.A.C.) If I feel someone MAY be a threat to me, can I show them that I have a gun to scare them off? Any action you take with a gun must be in direct self-defense; otherwise, it may be considered threatening with a dangerous weapon and you could be labeled as the aggressor. You may be criminally charged and you will possibly have your permit to carry a concealed firearm revoked. Carrying a firearm is very serious business. There is no room for mistakes.
  • If you pull a firearm on someone or even display the weapon, then it must be in self defense or it is not justified Do I have to be a Utah resident to obtain a concealed firearm permit? No. Any U.S. citizen may obtain a Utah concealed firearm permit, providing they meet the minimum qualifications. View the minimum qualifications. If I have a Utah Concealed Firearms Permit, do I have to go through the standard “Brady Bill Background Check” when I purchase a firearm?A valid Utah concealed firearm permit may be used to waive the BCI background check and the corresponding fees. However, the dealer is still required to call BCI to confirm the validity of the concealed firearm permit.
