Concealed Handgun License-Multi State – (CHL-MS) We offer a combination course for those who wish to obtain CHL’s from Oregon, Utah, Arizona and Florida. The advantage of attending a combined course is the ability to carry concealed in multiple states. Oregon, Utah, Arizona and Florida combined are either recognized by, or has formal reciprocity agreements with 36 other States. Most notably, Utah is recognized by Washington whereas as Oregon is not. So, for those quick trips to Vancouver you will need a Utah Concealed Carry Permit if you do not already have a Washington CHL.


Our combo course meets the requirements needed to obtain all certificates of completion necessary to obtain a Concealed Handgun License (CHL) for all three states and those who recognize and/or share formal reciprocity. This course is a total of 5 hours. Upon completion, you are not obligated to apply for a CHL but can then do so at your discretion subject to the requirements of each individual state.





Add Live Fire addition for $50


Fingerprints and photos will be required by the State of Utah with along with your completed application and course completion certificate. An additional set of fingerprints will be required by the State of Arizona. These are included in the price of this course. Florida requires a set of fingerprints AND you are required to safely handle and discharge a firearm in our presence so you will need to register for our Live Fire Addition if you would like us to issue Florida paperwork.

It is important that each student understands that this course alone in no way fully prepares them for all of the possibilities they may encounter that may require the justified use of deadly physical force. The CHL classes are not designed to replace or supersede real, practical defensive handgun training; specifically, live fire training. At 540 Tactical we are not simply certificate signers. There are many places to obtain a basic certificate in order to fulfill the requirement to obtain a CHL. However, there are far fewer places that actually prepare their students in a meaningful way to prevail in a life threatening encounter. While not mandatory, we feel strongly that all students taking this course should also register for the
Live Fire addition.


By design, it is typically offered at the end of each CHL class. Attending  the Live Fire addition is a good start to developing the safe, practical and proven defensive handgun skills and mind-set necessary to prevail in a life threatening encounter. In fact, we feel so strongly about this that we will waive the course fee for the Live Fire addition if you do not see its value after completing the course. 

Upon successful completion of this course you will be issued a certificate of completion. You then apply for your CHL with each state or county. Details for eligibility and requirements are found on the individual states page located under Our Classes / Concealed Handgun.
