There are a few things to keep in mind when purchasing a gun in Utah:

  1. You must be at least 21 years old to purchase a handgun from a licensed dealer.
  2. You must complete a background check, which includes filing an application with the Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) and paying a fee.
  3. You must complete a firearms safety course.

Here are the specific steps to follow when buying a gun in Utah:
Step 1: Choose the type of gun you want.
There are many different types of guns available on the market, so it is important to do your research and pick the one that is right for you. Consider what you will be using the gun for and how much experience you have with firearms.
Step 2: Find a reputable dealer.
Once you know what type of gun you want, you need to find a licensed dealer who can sell you the gun. You can check with the National Rifle Association or the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives for a list of dealers in your area.
Step 3: Complete a background check.
Before you can purchase a gun, you must complete a background check. This is done by filling out an application with the BCI and paying a fee. The background check will include information on your criminal history, mental health, and whether you have been dishonorably discharged from the military.
Step 4: Complete a firearms safety course.
In Utah, you must also complete a firearms safety course before you can purchase a gun. The course must be approved by the BCI and will teach you how to safely handle and store a firearm.
 
How to buy a gun in Utah?

To buy a gun in Utah, you’ll need to meet some state and federal requirements:
– You must be at least 21 years old to purchase a handgun from a licensed firearms dealer in Utah.
– You will also need to pass a background check, which you can do through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) or by contacting your local law enforcement agency.
If you want to buy a gun through a private sale, such as from an individual or at a gun show, there is no background check required by state law. However, the buyer must be 18 years old for rifles and shotguns and 21 years old for handguns. Also, under federal law, unlicensed individuals are not allowed to sell handguns across state lines.
You must have a permit to carry a concealed firearm in Utah (concealed carry holster). You can apply for a permit through your local sheriff’s office. To be eligible, you must be at least 21 years old, have no serious criminal history, and complete a firearms training course.
If you want to open and carry a firearm in Utah, you do not need a permit. However, there are some places where open carry is not allowed, such as schools, courthouses, and airports.

In Utah, anyone over the age of 21 can legally purchase a gun from a licensed firearms dealer. There are no special permits or licenses required. However, you will need to pass a background check before you can take possession of the gun.
If you plan to buy a handgun, you will need to complete a firearm safety training course first. You can find more information about this requirement on the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification website.
Once you have completed the necessary training and passed your background check, you can simply purchase your gun from a licensed dealer and take it home with you.

To purchase weapons in Utah you must be at least 21 years of age. Also, you will need to complete a firearms safety course. And you will need to pass a background check.

When it comes to finding a gun dealer in Utah, there are several options. You can find dealers online or in person. If you choose to purchase your gun online, make sure that the dealer is reputable and that they are shipping the gun to an FFL (Federal Firearms Licensed) dealer in Utah.

If you opt to buy your gun from a local dealer, there is no shortage of great stores across the state. A few popular ones include American Fork Gun Exchange, Impact Guns, and Sportsman’s Warehouse.
