Non-Resident DC Concealed Carry Permit

Good morning,

I work around DC and was considering getting a carry permit,

The certification class has to be taken every two years to renew the permit?

Is it worth having? I have never had a CCW permit in any jurisdiction, and have never carried a firearm, but I am quite familiar with firearms as I have owned them for many years now.


Just wondering what you guys think. It feels a little foolish to me, but I was also considering getting a Utah permit, maybe someone lumps the classes together?

From what I have read I can use the training to get a permit from other states such as Florida. Is this true?

Sorry for the rambling post, but thank you

I carry daily in DC. To me, it's well worth it. But I also have an MD permit, so I got that goin' for me...

Some states require a specific course/ qualification , some are very broad in what they accept , some have no training requirement .

DC and Utah both require specific course , tought by instructor certified by them .

With the 16hr training it adds up to a fair chunk of $. And DC has a long list of no carry places . Is it " worth it " ? You have to judge for yourself .

It's not an either/ or choice . Utah is moderate cost to aquire , cheap easy renewals , and good lots of places out of state .

Do your research. I think you'll find a permit from another state may be required for a NR permit

I don't think that's true for DC.
You just need to have the DC approved training. If you have a Resident/NR permit from somewhere else that has a live fire component (or other live fire training/experience) -- you could possibly use that to request an exemption from the range part of the DC requirements.

Yes, it actually is true. Here's the application, note question 20.

Here are the instructions for completing the application. Note item 3.

So I'll happily admit I can be dense sometimes but I don't see question 20 requiring you to have a permit from somewhere else. All Question 20 asks is do you have a residence or place of business in the US AND are licensed to carry by another state.

And if you answer yes to that then they want proof of that license to carry and proof of residence/business.

I don't see that requiring you to have another state's permit before DC will issue you one.

You just answered your own question.
