Hey everybody. I have had my cfp for a little over a year now, and carry all of the time. My wife and I got our permits after the shootings at Trolley Square. I had thought about getting it for a couple of years but knew that having my gun with me all of the time is a huge responsibility. We live in SLC pretty close to Trolley Square, and I had even told my wife that I was in the mood for Spaghetti Factory that night. That night, my wife and I decided to take that responsibility upon us and get our permits. We signed up for the class the next week. I am currently a student at the U and carry everyday on campus. I also have many friends who I share my beliefs about gun rights and self protection with. Some of them have also gotten their permits. I carry a 4” XD 40, and my wife has a 3” XD 9. We have had the 40 for about 4 years, and bought the 9 when we got our permits last year. I recently had my first open carry experience at Cabela’s on Memorial Day which I wanted to share on oppencarry.org, so I decided that I needed to finally stop lurching and introduce myself. I usually OC when I go camping or hiking, but this was my first experience OCing in a crowded store. I have a 30-06 for hunting deer and elk, and my wife picked up an AK-47 for me to take hunting last season. I even got my deer with it. I have been looking into getting a home defense shotgun, and maybe a small revolver as a backup gun. Do any of you carry a backup gun? If so what kind, small semi-auto or revolver. Someday after school, I would love to get an AR in 6.8 and the new XDM looks amazing too. The last thing is that my name comes from my wish that I could be a real mountain man and the fact that I sometimes have a beard that makes me look the part. Thanks for such a great forum, I have already enjoyed reading it and now hopefully I will also enjoy participating as well.

We almost went to the last opencarry dinner, but had a previous engagement that would have made it hard to do. She said that maybe we could go to the next meet.

Welcome to our forum! We're glad to have you join us...
Thanks for introducing yourself. Good introduction!
Kudos to you and your wife for recognizing the need to be prepared for self-defense.

Stick around and post often...

p.s. I've got a couple of avatar recommendations for you (since you are "Lurching" instead of "Lurking") :lol2:



Just having fun with ya. Enjoy the forum!
