Welcome to our form! We're glad to have you join us.
Thanks for introducing yourself.

How long have you been into guns?
What do you plan to carry once you get your CFP?
How do you plan to carry it, i.e. what kind of holster?

Congratulations on making the decision to not be a victim! :thumbsup:

Know the laws and carry safely!
There are lots of very knowledgeable people here.
Post often and enjoy...

I just started getting into guns in the past year or so. I'm still i noob..

I have a 22 rifle and a shot gun.. I camp a lot and am in the wilderness a good amount..

I have been looking into the XD line of guns.. I think i may go with a .40 compact as a carry weapon. I have also been considering a 9mm since the ammo is slightly cheaper and i'm sure i'll wanna shoot the crap out of everything once i get a gun :lol2:

The XD's really appeal to me because of all of their safety features. If i'm gonna carry a loaded weapon, i want it to be as safe as possible.

That sounds like a good reason to get one of each! My primary carry gun has been a Taurus PT111 in 9mm, but I just got a compact XD (in .45ACP) that will get some carry time too. The 9mm is definitely cheaper to shoot and great for general handgun shooting practice for less. Part of my decision to get a .45 had to do with the time spent in the backcountry too; I was wary of a 9mm against a mountain lion or possibly a black bear and I will feel somewhat safer with a .45 against such animals (and the two legged kind too).

Another option for those with a 1911-pattern pistol is a .22LR conversion kit that allows inexpensive practice while maintaining the ergonomics of the carry gun.

That was my primary rationale for getting a 9mm XD. I think it's really important to be very proficient with your carry weapon, so I try to put 50-100 rounds per week through it. It's much cheaper to do that with 9mm than anything else other than a .22.

Welcome from southern Utah! :shades:

As you have probably already read, the average wait time is about 50-60 days FROM THE TIME THEY LOG YOUR APPLICATION IN, but this gives you time to acquire the weapon of your choice, with a holster, and get familiar with them...eventually, the CFP will actually show up in your mailbox. :nilly:
