Thanks for introducing Laughing yourself. (well, that was a tad facetious.)

I have a [drumroll pls....] Ruger Mark ii.Dustin WJ said:Welcome
We're glad to have you. What types of firearms do you have (or want)?
Not yet, but I probably will. I rarely feel the need to carry except when in the boonies. Utah's lack of restriction on open carry meets almost all needs I've ever had, but having the permit would smooth out the edges. Plus, when I travel my handgun will go with me.tapehoser said:Got your CFP?
What do you carry?
How long have you carried?

I love the "Utah-loaded" criteria. I love utah. (but don't let my former compatriots in Texas hear that).Jeff Johnson said:You do know about the restriction on carrying a loaded weapon in Utah. If you don't have a CFP (that's Concealed Firearm Permit), then to carry a gun openly in Utah, it must be unloaded. Read that definition of loaded and you'll see that while quirky, it doesn't shut you down entirely. The gun must be two or more actions away from firing . So, for a semi-automatic, if there is no round chambered (even with a fully-charged magazine seated in the well), it is legally unloaded. The definition for loaded revolvers is also in the above link.
It comes in handyJeff Johnson said:This is a cool emoticon:
May I use it in the list of forum emoticons?
I'm glad to hear that your Taurus is working out for you. I've only heard good things about it. 1911s are among my favorites, if not tops, as hopefully the avatar represents, so I will own one eventually. But for now, I have access to several already, so I'm leaning toward branching out. If I do go with a 1911 for my upcoming purchase, it will probably be the Taurus, since i've already got the cash for that!Crackshot said:Nice avatar! I was glad to see the Taurus PT1911 on your shortlist. I was really drawn to the 1911 style for a long time, and I finally bought the Taurus in Feb and I love it. It feels really good and shoots smooth.
