Just joined up, was referred to this place by a friend over on the Utah-specific page of Glock Talk.

Happy to see a Utah-specific site.

I live and work in Utah county, born and raised here.

Was born and raised around firearms, and believe very strongly in maintaining our second amendment rights.

Thanks for having me.

If you are from Utah County maybe you can tell me what a Zoo Bee is

My friends from Utah especially those from Utah County have used that term? :?

A "Zoo Bee", or "Zoobie" is some one who attend "the" (as my mom used to phrase it) BYU, or the "Y". Its a slightly less than complimentary term used by other Utah county folk - mostly those who did not attend BYU, and are not BYU fans, but is not really a horribly slanderous or offensive term either. I've heard neighbors who attend the Y use it themselves.

My understanding is that "Zoobie" is derived from people calling the college "B-Y-Zoo". You hardly ever hear that term anymore, but "zoobie" is still used to refer to BYU students, particularly the really uptight ones.
