This seems to be the most common question we hear. The new concealed carry law requires 16 hours of training but allows for certain exemptions.

Everyone will fall into one of the three following categories:
•             Active or honorably discharged military personnel are required to complete a minimum of 8 hours of training.
•             If you have not served in the military but have taken a firearms safety course, you may be exempt for 4 or 8 hours depending on the course. Please call Brian at 815-714-9757, and he will help to determine how many additional hours of training that the law requires.
•             If you have not served in the military and have not had any other firearm training, the law requires that you complete 16 hours of training.

Class Fees:
8 hour course $125.00
12 hour course $190.00
16 hour course $225.00.
Students who take the 16 hour course may also qualify for their Utah non-resident concealed carry license with the addition of another 1 hour training module for a fee of $50

  • Upholding our Constitutional Republic and its founding principles.
  • Reducing taxes by removing direct forms of taxation
  • Stop the encroachment upon the “Unalienable rights” of man by defending the same.
