Hello all. I'm the ***, and I don't even live in Utah. I lived in Utah for my entire life, except the last month because I just moved to Montana to work for the National Guard. But before I moved, I headed over to Rangemasters and took the CCW class and sent in my application. I would have had my permit by now, had I not left the state. But when you call the BCI and tell them you are no longer a Utah resident, they put you on the bottom of the pile and now they say my permit won't be here until January. But it will be a Utah permit, and that is why I joined this forum.

While I sit around and wait for my card to come, I am interested in learning all I can about choosing a gun/holster/method, etc. before I invest in all the equipment. So feel free to share your opinions. Thank you.

Welcome. There is a lot of great info on this forum.

Tell us about how you are thinking of carrying and what your needs or circumstances might be then we can give better recommendations. There are as many ways and guns to carry as there are people on this forum!

I carry a Kel-Tec P11 (9MM) in an Uncle Mikes ankle holster 12-14 hours a day. I also have a Kel-Tec P3AT (.380 auto) with a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster for other occasions. I just got this gun and holster so I haven't carried much with it yet.

I have a FNP-9, but holsters are hard to find for it and it is a bit bulkier than I intend to carry. What I want to get is a small automatic, perhaps a kel-tec or NAA and carry IWB or strong-side. Or pocket. I found a cool-looking holster called "Zulu" by the maker, that claims to be capable of pocket or belt carry. I guess first I need to decide on a gun, then adjust my carry method with experience.

A unique issue I have to deal with is a skin condition. I am allergic to potassium dichromate, which is used in the tanning process of leather. So I can't get a leather IWB or other holster that would be against my skin for extended periods.

And, I work for the Federal government, so carrying at work is strictly forbidden.

Welcome to the Forum. Glock, Sig, and H&K are good choices. You can find good deals on new or used ones if you look around. I've heard that Springfield XD's and S&W M&P's are good, but I don't have personal experience with them. However, I believe that others in the Forum have.
