Welcome to Genesis Firearms

Concealed Firearms Certified InstructorAt Genesis Firearms we specialize in the Utah Concealed Firearm Permit course.

Our Utah course program is an all-inclusive one-stop shop. We do the finger printing, passport photos,and required training. The training for a Utah Concealed Firearm Permit is a lecture-only course. We schedule frequent Utah permit classes so we can easily accommodate large or small groups. You may also request classes at your location. There is a 5-person minimum for private Utah permit classes.

The State of Utah has made several changes to their concealed firearm permit laws. "One major change in the a law is regarding some non-resident applicants for the Utah concealed firearm permit. IF a non-resident applicant is from a state that either has formal reciprocity agreement with Utah or recognizes the Utah concealed firearm permit, the applicant must hold and provide proof of a current concealed firearm or concealed weapon permit issued by the applicant's state of residency upon application for the Utah concealed firearm permit. This change will not affect those applicants who reside in a state that does not have formal reciprocity or recognition with Utah, i.e. California, New York, Maryland, Kansas, etc."

All applications received after May 10, 2011 will be required to submit new fees and a copy of that states' concealed firearm permit or concealed weapon permit, if applicable. Regarding fees, in-state (Utah) concealed firearm permit applicants will be charged $44.00. Out of state applicants will be charged $49.00. All renewal applications will be charged $15.00.

While we specialize in the Utah Concealed Firearms Permit Course it is not the only course we offer.  We also offer the Maryland Handgun Qualification License (HQL) Course. This course is taught on an as requested basis.  We keep the Maryland HQL classes very small with no more then 4 students at one time.  While other instructors will use the cattle car approach we feel this course warrants a smaller instructor/student ratio. The Maryland HQL course fee is $100 and includes all required classroom time, range fees, firearms and limited ammunition.  We do not offer fingerprinting services for the Maryland HQL but we can recommend several Live Scan providers. Once our students complete the course we will also assist them with the online HQL application.  We have found that the Maryland State Police website to be tricky due to poor design and have learned the tricks to make the application process easy for our customers.

We also offer all the standard National Rifle Association Courses: Basic Pistol, Rifle and Shotgun; First Steps Pistol, Rifle and Shotgun; Range Safety Officer (RSO); Metallic Cartridge and Shotgun Shell Reloading to name a few.  

And of course we will continue to also offer One-on-One personal firearms instruction.

We constantly strive to allow you to learn and apply only the best of shooting basics so that you can be successful and enjoy your shooting future!
