    Welcome to OCDO.

    You really should go to the Utah forum and ask there - they know more about state-specific law than the rest of us "general public" types.

    Also, it will give you the opportunity to meet local OCers.

    stay safe.

    State specific question.

    Moved it to Utah sub-forum.

    Yes it is. as long as you stay 1000 feet from a school and school property and do not carry loaded (no round in the chamber for a semi auto and no round in line with the chamber or before the chamber in a revolver. With a UTAH Concealed Permit this does not matter. There are other places you cannot carry with or without a permit. You will want to find out what those places are as well.

    Also, at 18, when and only when in a motor vehicle, you may have the handgun fully loaded and it is allowed to be concealed, including concealed on your person.

    But when not in a car, without a permit, you must open carry and not have a round in firing position and in a manner that requires two operations before firing.
