Do you want to exercise your 2nd Amendment rights and increase the number of states in which you can legally carry?
Are you a New Jersey resident who wishes to carry in Pennsylvania?
Do you want to travel to and carry in Delaware or outside of PA and in states that do not honor the PA permit?
Would you like the ability to renew your non-resident permit via the web once every 5 years for only $15 and without the need to ever get fingerprinted, photographed and take a class again?
If the answer is yes, then join us at Philly Firearms Academy: 319A Easton Road, Willow Grove, PA 19090, for our upcoming Utah non-resident Concealed Carry Weapons Permit class on Sunday, August 27th from 10am - 3pm!
Why you should obtain a non-resident permit:
Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a "universal firearms carry license," so the number of states that honor the Pennsylvania License to Carry Firearms (PA LTCF) changes frequently due to agreements between the Attorney Generals of PA and other states.
These changes occur without warning and without any particular rhyme or reason. So while today, the PA LTCF might be valid in 29 states, tomorrow the number of states may decrease without any notification! When you obtain a non-resident carry permit, you automatically inherit reciprocity (and can legally carry) in each and every state recognized by the Utah non-resident Permit.
Also, certain "May Issue" states such as New Jersey, New York and California, while "offering" concealed carry permits, make it virtually impossible for the average law abiding citizen to obtain a permit even if they have demonstrated need and meet all of the legal requirements to obtain one. So, what can a person that lives in one of those "May Issue" states do? Even though they won't be able to carry in their home state, they can apply for and obtain the Utah non-resident Concealed Carry Weapons Permit and legally carry in every state recognized by that state.
Additionally, dedicated concealed carriers view the Utah Permit as an investment in their safety and a sort of "backup license" much in the same way many carry a "backup gun". If a state currently covered by your PA LTCF ever changes, your Utah non-resident Concealed Carry Weapons Permit may very well cover you legally carrying in that state…even when agreements change between states without notice.
A concealed carry gun permit is a valuable credential for any multi-state traveler or for anyone concerned about disaster preparedness. Remember Hurricane Katrina when many law-abiding citizens had to vacate New Orleans to different states. Imagine how much peace of mind they would have had with a legal permit to carry a concealed firearm in whatever new state they were displaced to! Your concealed carry handgun may save the lives of you and your family in an emergency situation.
Be advised that a Non Resident Permit is NEVER a replacement for a resident permit if you live in a "Shall Issue" state. In addition, if you currently live in a "May Issue State", you should verify recognition and reciprocity agreements between your state, Utah, and the state you wish to carry in. At the end of the day, it is our individual responsibilities to make sure we are complying state laws.
Currently, PA does not recognize the UT permit from residents that live in May Issue States (Connecticut, Delaware, DC, Hawaii, Maryland, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, California, Massachusetts and New York) unless they currently also have a permit issued by their state of residence.>
Upon completion of our all inclusive course you will meet the legal training requirements to apply for a Utah non-resident Concealed Carry Weapons Permit and since the course is completely classroom based, no firearms manipulation or shooting is involved.
We are offering the entire package from start to finish in one session: the Utah permit certification class, fingerprints, notary services, photos, postage (we take care of malling all materials), and the permit application Fee ($69.00) for an all inclusive cost of $275.00.
Please note the following:
The application fee is NON REFUNDABLE in the event that the applicant does not meet the legal requirements to obtain a valid Utah non-resident Concealed Carry Weapons Permit.
Also, be aware that if you're a PA resident, you will need to bring your PA License to Carry Firearms in order to have us mail out your package. If you don't have your PALTCF, you can still take the course and receive your certificate and have your fingerprints taken, your application notarized and your photos taken for $200 and have a year to get your PALTCF and submit your application!
IF YOU ARE A DELAWARE RESIDENT YOU MUST HAVE A RESIDENT CCW OR UTAH WILL REJECT YOUR APPLICATION. DELAWARE IS THE ONLY STATE AFFECTED BY SB36 (UTAH BILL).
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us either via email at email@example.com or directly at 215-765-SAFE (7233).
