Well thats easy, so they should just say that they honor Utah's permits. It only makes sense that you would follow any states slight differences.

That's a great question.
It's only a stupid question if you don't ask or ignore the good advice.

As has been said already, every state has its own laws pertaining to concealed or open carry. Those states that honor Utah CFPs can be found on this map from www.handgunlaw.us:



Study the gun laws from each state you intend to visit. As has been said, Denver was enabled by an activist judge to restrict open carry even though the Colorado legislature enacted state-wide preemption.

Since you're a newbie, here's a question for you: What is the difference between reciprocity and recognition? Some states honor Utah CFPs because of reciprocity. Other states honor Utah permits because of recognition. Do you know the difference?

Though other states may honor your Utah CFP, that doesn't necesarily mean that you have the same privileges there that you have in Utah. States differ in many aspects of the law. It is best to do your research beforehand on the laws of the state you will be carrying in.

Nobody answered the question. OK, I'll answer it myself.

Reciprocity: A formal agreement between two states that they will honor each other's concealed firearm permits.

Recognition: Even if there is no formal agreement between two states, it may be that one or the other or both states will honor the other state's concealed firearm permits. By statute, Utah recognizes all other states' concealed firearm permits.

You can see which states have reciprocity agreements with Utah vs. which states just honor Utah's permits at this BCI link.
