Does anyone know of a place to get my concealed carry in Utah County? Either a business or a persons residents.

Thanks

Well they run a class at Cabelas fairly often. Also there is a place right next to Gunnies that does it (Loke would know what their name is, I cant remember).

There's usually a few advertisements on KSL ads if you check on them. Also I think sometimes at the gun shows they have the classes you can take there too.

It seems like almost everybody I know who has a CCW permit carried religiously for about a week or so after getting it. Then, it's like they realized that it isn't worth the hassle to pack along a whole extra item (one that's a little bulkier than a wallet or cell phone) that they are likely never going to use and now they carry rarely if ever anymore.

I first got a CCP so that I could drop my boy off at his school after a morning of hunting with guns in the truck.

You can have a loaded handgun in your car, a loaded CC in you're business if your an owner, and of course you can carry/hide/conceal/leave on the coffee table/hide under your pillow etc,etc, in your home....so that don't leave to many more places where you might need a deadly weapon for DEFENSE. I've always figured why have my name on another list as a gun owner when the likelyhood of ever needing a gun other then in the places I've mentioned are astronomical.

except maybe the movie theater, grocery store, company party, school, convenience store/gas station, favorite restaurant, walmart parking lot, etc. etc. etc........

So when you get out of your vehicle, you either have to open carry with the weapon unloaded, or you are leaving a weapon in your vehicle vulnerable to theft.

I think that law is fine and dandy, except what happens when we aren't in our vehicle? You enter your vehicle with the intent to get out at a destination. Also, there aren't many cases you will need it there other than a robbery while you are inside. The dangerous situations are in places AFTER you exit the vehicle.

I see the point on the list, and the above point about the hassle.... I understand it is very rare to end up in a tragic incident. I just am not sure how I would feel knowing I have forms of defense sitting at home while myself, or family, are in a terrible incident completely vulnerable. The odds are rare, but I couldn't forgive myself if something happened and that one extra item could have potentially helped.

It seems Ready Gunner in Provo was advertising free classes recently. I got mine from there a couple years ago and it was 2 for $10. The instructor was great.

I'm not sure the state law allowing loaded weapons in a car supersedes the prohibition of having a weapon within a certain distance of a school without having a concealed carry permit. Perhaps it does, but with a permit, no worries there.
