SALT LAKE CITY -- A group of Utah gun owners is upset by a decision made by Nevada law enforcement not to accept concealed carry permits issued in this state.

The Nevada Sheriffs' and Chiefs' Association based their decision on the fact Utah does not require permit holders to take a test on a shooting range before issuing a concealed carry permit.

However, members of Gun Owners of Utah and the Utah Shooting Sports Council tell the Salt Lake Tribune such a test does not indicate if a person is competent to hold a permit.

Utah permits are currently accepted by 33 other states.
