Much as I dislike the idea/need of even getting a permission slip from gov't, I got my Utah non-res permit a couple of years ago with the idea of being able to unquestionably carry in Utah and other states out West. Specifically, New Mexico, as I travel through a couple of times a year and typically lodge there overnight and may spend an extra day exploring. My current resident state permit wasn't honored in either state, so I wanted to do something to be perfectly 'legal'.
Thought I had it covered until:
Then Nevada dropped a bombshell on Utah and refused reciprocity based on 'training' and some other nebulous reasons. Well, that knocks off Nevada for being able to carry in the manner of my choice. Bummer, but I can live with it. I don't frequent Lost Wages, Clark County, so it's not a big deal as I can OC sans permit during my exploring adventures elsewhere in the state. It does cause some other compliance issues, but I can work around it as infrequently as I'm there.
Now, New Mexico is having a hissy fit about Utah instructors coming into NM and licensing it's citizens in what the NMDPS says is a circumvention of the 16hr training regimen required for a NM resident to get licensed. NM is also reviewing all it's other reciprocity agreements so getting another non res permit, like FLA, may be chasing a moving target.
Fact is, the Utah permit is losing favor with some anti-RKBA officials. Nothing Utah is doing wrong. Just nitpicking, collectivist politicians throwing their worthless weight around. Wyoming tried this same no reciprocity maneuver when the NPS rules and finally the law changed. Wyoming folks stood up and pushed back on Gov Dave and got his appointed minion stopped.
