The class is in Nebraska, in fact right in the metro, but a group of gun owners hope to get concealed carry certification from Utah.

"Because I do a lot of traveling," Brian Ziepke said. "I go to auctions a lot and I want to be legal in all of the states because I conceal carry everywhere I go."

Ziepke sat in on Jason Wright's class on Tuesday night. To be there, Ziepke and everyone else must already be certified in Nebraska to carry a concealed gun.

"When you have your Nebraska CCW permit and you get a Utah permit in conjunction with that, it gains you a few more states to legally carry a concealed weapon in," Wright said.

Forty total states.

"I say the majority of people do not travel, they just want to have that insurance in case they do travel," Wright said.

Wright says their classes have become much more popular. "We see all people come through, men, women, of all ages, there's really not a set demographic of people that attend this class," Wright said.

After four hours, people in the class will be Utah concealed carry certified.
