    Utah Concealed Carry Class – September 8, 2012

    Our FINAL Utah CCW Class. When I began teaching the Utah class there were only two other instructors in Maryland now there are 29!! Given the requirements to teach I would need to spend 3 days (two travel and one in class) and almost $1,200 to continue to serve as an instructor. My goal when I became an instructor was simply to provide a source to obtain a CCW that would be recognized in other states and my goals have been achieved. There are a many other fine instructors now on board teaching the Utah course. So, please join me in my last class.

    PPTI will sponsor a Utah Concealed Carry Class on Saturday, September 8. The class will begin at 08:00  and conclude at 14:00. The class will be held at the Country Inn & Suites – BWI, 1717 West Nursery Road, Linthicum Heights, MD in the Board Room. Photographs and fingerprints will follow the class and are included in the price of the course. When you complete the class you will have a completed packet to send to for your permit including an addressed envelope!

    Utah CCW Fee Updates – They’re going down!!

    We are all accustom to government fees rising, especially in these difficult financial times.  Well … Utah CCW fees are actually decreasing. The big change is that the FBI fingerprint fee has been decreased from $30.25 to $16.50 per applicant. Do you think others will follow?

    These changes will take effect April 1, 2012. The Utah non-resident fees will be$51.25. This includes a $29.75 application fee, $5.00 processing fee and the $16.50 FBI fingerprint fee. Utah residents will pay $46.25 to include a $29.75 application fee and $16.50 FBI fingerprint fee. Utah residents do not pay the $5.00 processing fee. IMPORTANT – Any application received after April 1, 2012 MUST contain the new fees. If you do not send the proper fee your application will be returned and your processing will not be processed.

    A new application will be posted on the BCI website on March 23 reflecting the fee changes.

    Bicycle Safety Tip – Flag

    Today in my neighborhood, in fact on my street, a neighbors child came from in front of a parked car. He is small, riding a small bike and didn’t stop to look for traffic. The bike and rider were so small I was unable to see him in front of the parked vehicle however I was fortunately able to stop and avoid a collision with the child.

    If the little guy had an orange flag on his bike I would have been able to see it moving over the parked vehicle. These flag staffs are made of fiberglass and attach to the axle with a small mounting bracket. The flags, usually vinyl,  come in a variety of sizes and colors and the better ones have a reflective surface on the flag. Prices range from about $28 – $38 for the best to $10.00 for an economy version. They can be found at local bike shops, Target, K-Mart and on-line. It’s a small investment for the protection of the child on the bike!

    I’ll be posting more Bike Safety Tips. Stay tuned.

    Fingerprinting

    I’ve been ask if we will do fingerprinting for other than the Utah CCW class. The short answer is yes. We will fingerprint using ink and cards. However, check with the agency / company that needs your fingerprints as some require fingerprinting to be by law enforcement. Also, if your agency / company requires “Live Scan” we can not help you. If you do a Google search using Live Scan and your location you should find someone who is local to you.
