    I sent in my Maine CFP application 3 weeks ago. It returned saying that I didn't have a proof of handgun safety. I had attached the Utah application which the instructor stamped and signed (It wasn't notarized, but I didn't think it needed to be)

    What should I do to correct this?

    Monday morning I'd be on the phone and ask them what they need to issue your permit.

    Don't they give you a certificate? Yeah, I would call them.

    You took a Utah CFP course? It does need to be notorized with your signature on it. The instructor stamp isn't notorized, it is your signature that is.

    I just sent in the paper with the stamp that I recieved from the instructor. I also sent in my DD214 from the Army which might have been what worked as well. Are you a SMP cadet or just a Cadet? If you are SMP I would send in the DD214.

    I amnot a SMPCadet.

    When I talked with them this morning, they said that they needed more than the Utah CFP application with the stamp on it, but while looking at the posted requirements it meets all of them. Is there anything I can do to point this out to them?

    I don't know. I just sent everything in, and had no problems. Sorry for your trouble.

    UPDATE -

    I made another call today, and found out that the Utah CFP permit stamped and signed by the instructor is NOT enough to issue a permit. The documentation that they need must have:

    The applicant's name
    The type of class - what was covered in the class
    The instructor's name, credentials and signature

    The requirement states "Basic Handgun Safety" is required.

    You'd think they knew what was taught, based on the Utah requirements, which they should know, since they have reciprocity.

    I'm wondering if they're talking about something like an NRA course? You could pass it easily, I'm sure. I'm instructor rated,and I'd be willing to put you through it. It'd only take a couple hours.



    Another thought-

    Have you passed hunter education? That should qualify. I know I cover more "safety" stuff during a hunter ed course than ina basic NRA course anyway.

    I know that the Utah CCW application has to be notorized in order for it to be valid. When I took the CCW class, all the instructor did was stamp and sign the application. There is not certificate of completion. That's what the stamp and signature are for.

    Perhaps the governing body that processes the firearm permit applications do not realize this. You have to read it in order to know. Some of these agencies are looking for a certificate of some sort and they're doing it in a hurry. In your case, all they saw is the Utah application and they probably didn't even look at it. They may have thought that you put submitted the wrong document. I would definitely call first before doing anything else. They may accept it if they still have it.
