Welcome to our forum! We're glad you joined us.
Thanks for introducing :lol: yourself. (well, that was a tad facetious. 8) )

Tell us a bit more. Like what the heck is SPFK?
Do you have a Utah concealed firearm permit (CFP) or a carry permit from any another state?
What do you like to carry? etc. etc. etc.

Yes, well it seemed a mere formality; I wasn't expecting such an enthusiastic response. Glad to be here!

I found the site after searching for it. I hadn't heard of it specifically, but I knew Utah had to have a forum like this one.

I have a [drumroll pls....] Ruger Mark ii.

My dad gave it to me when I was 16. All the rest of my shooting fun has been from his collection or from rentals. I'm currently stashing away some cash for a new toy, and the following are on my shortlist:

HK45
HK USP .40
HK Expert .40 or .45
Kimber Eclipse Custom II
Taurus PT1911
SIG 226 Equinox

My younger brother managed to buy a new Kimber before I did. I'm very disapointed in myself; I'm going to have to catch up and quickly.

Got your CFP?
What do you carry?
How long have you carried?
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.

By further way of introduction, I'm pursuing a grad degree at the UofU, my wife and I take the kids camping whenever we can, and we two go backpacking when we can. School's gotten in the way of hunting season for a long time, but my schedule's a little more flexible now, so that's going to change. It's good to be here; I'll try to check in and post often.

Paul's right! You win the all-time best Introductory Thread title!!

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.

This is a cool emoticon:


May I use it in the list of forum emoticons?

I love the "Utah-loaded" criteria. I love utah. (but don't let my former compatriots in Texas hear that).

It comes in handy :)

I have no reservations, but it's not my original work. It was in my folder of collected emoticons, of which i have no recollection of their origins. (I'm sure it could be easily/subtly modified if that is a concern to you. Otherwise, let all enjoy!)

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.

Thanks for joining

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!
