CCW in Az for new resident
« on: September 09, 2020, 07:53:28 am »
Hi All, i am new here, moved to Az from Commiefornia 2 weeks ago. I had a CCW in Ca for 6 years. I know i dont have to get one to CC in Az but i want to. Whats the easiest way to get a resident CCW in Az? Will any of the multi-state online apps apply or do i need to go the conventional way and take a class?
thank you

    Welcome to AZ, from a fellow DPRK refugee who came 3 years ago.

    Please make sure you sign up to AZCDL, they are instrumental in protecting your Arizona 2A rights!

    For CCW, A 4 or 8 hour class works.  I got mine at Scottsdale Gun Club, but lots of LGS, Sportsman's Warehouse and ranges hold these classes.

    The classes will fingerprint you and help you fill out the app, which you will send with your check to AZDPS.

    Turnaround time in 2018 for me,  was 2 week.

    Good luck and welcome!

    Basic Info:

    Get application on line
    Need two sets of fingerprint cards   (Diamondback Guns are still doing them)
    Need evidence of Gun Safety class.  (you probably had one in California..send certificate copy)
    Send copy of Calif CCW.

    Pay with Money order...all filled out properly.  I neglected to fill in the "sellers" address and they returned my application for correction.  ;-D

    Very simple and took less than 2 weeks including the return fiasco.

    THanks! I didnt see much use in going thru another training. I have certs for several re-certifications in Ca. i would assume those would suffice.

    The on-line application gives the exact requirements of the training...but it is very basic.  Your courses in California will, no doubt, be sufficient.

    The fingerprint cards can be the most difficult to obtain.  Most of the Police/Sheriff departments where you might normally looked are not doing them due to Covid.

    Diamondback Guns is still doing them on the required forms.

    I dont live in Phx,  but your local PD or Sheriff dept may do them... just give a call.

    They do up here. Minimal cost, you just have to bring your own cards.
    However, call DPS ccw division and talk with them... they will tell you exactly what you do or do not need since you have and active one from CA.

    Yes and no.

    Technically they will get you in and licensed.  But...
    You still need to know AZ gun laws because they differ wildly from CA.  Sure you can safely handle the pistol.  Sure you can peacefully de-escalate a situation. But I don't want to see you lose your rights on a firearms violation charge because you did something here you thought was legal.  Four hours and $100 should get you the information you need to know and it is cheap insurance.
    The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
    Once we, as a society, lose that affinity, we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.

    +1 for GT -  You do need to get up to speed on the state of Arizona's gun laws.  I also would recommend that you pick up Alan Korwin's AZ Gun owners guide https://www.gunlaws.com/agog.htm.   Good info in there.

    If your just interested in in Fingerprinting, check these guys out -> https://www.arizonalivescan.com/ for just fingerprinting.   

    and Welcome to AZ

    I called the AZDPS this morning, they said they would take my calif ccw as being trained, so i only have to get finger print cards and pay the 60 bucks.
    Thanks again.

    All of them I tried calling months back were not doing it due to Coronavirus BS.

    As anm2_man said above, I recommended Live Scan. They're in Phoenix is their central location, I used them. They're professional, do good prints, and it's fully digital done, no ink.

    I had them do my CCW and my state professional licenses I needed to renew. They're good and price is around the same as UPS.

    I know some rolled their own prints and didn't have an issue.

    So do they accept a photo copy of your CCW?

    Good info.  I just signed up for Scottsdale Gun Club.  They do the fingerprinting as part of the 4hr class?

    I took the 8 hour and they did it. I'm sure the 4 hour does as well. They have a person there who does it in class. When you are done,  you must need to mark it all in with the $60 and that's it.

    Your local mailbox/shipping/notary will usually do fingerprinting too.

    Good luck!
