Unless I am mistaken, Utah will no longer issue a non-resident permit unless you have a permit from your home state. There used to be a large number of Texans that got Utah non-resident permits instead of a Texas permits because it was much cheaper and Texas will honor it.

From the Utah Department of Public Safety website

Non-resident proof of permit. If you reside in a state that recognizes the validity of the Utah CFP or has reciprocity with Utah, you must obtain a CFP or CCW from your home state and submit a copy of it with your application for a Utah permit. For a list of reciprocal states click here. Residency will be determined by your state-issued identification. If your state does not recognize the Utah permit this does not apply.

one of the reasons for this law is that many states were threatening to remove Utah from their recognition, for the very reason that you have stated, too many people were getting the Utah Non Resident permit, and their home states were feeling the penny crunch. So in response, Utah could either go with the new law... or stop issuing non resident permits. Utah felt that their current law was a win win for both Utah and the other states, and Utah is still THE most recognized permit

Splain what you mean by that please. Because there are other states that are more widely accepted (fewer forbidden states).

Utah has Reciprocity Agreements with 16 other states, Reciprocity is a formal written agreement between states to recognize each others permits, beyond that, Utah has Informal recognition with 18 other states for a total of 34 states that Recognize (Formally and Informally) the Utah Permit, Florida is now even with Utah with 34 states

OK, using your method, how would Arkansas stack up? Keep in mind, I'm not being argumentative or trying to be disagreeable. I'm just curious how you've come to your conclusion that the Utah permit is the one to have.

Actually I wouldnt say that is what he is getting at per say.... Utah just happens to be a good permit to have because of how much area it does cover. If you get the Florida permit with the Utah permit you cover even more ground.

OK, I'm just trying to get a better understanding of what he's driving at.
