    Hello from Los Angeles County

    Hi,

    I have just joined following recommendation of this site from CaliforniaCCW.org members

    I have a non-resident Utah permit and would like to get a Cal CCW permit, but my sheriff is tight with these. Some of us at Californiaccw.org are working on him, and other sheriffs. I do travel to Utah fairly regularly.

    I have carried (where legal) a Glock 22 (full-sized .40 S&W) for many years, but have recently been converted to 1911's. My new SW1911PD (5" barrel, scandium frame) is awesome. I expect to carry this as my street weapon, once I have fully broken it in, got holsters sorted out and all that stuff.

    I will still carry the G22 around my ranch, as that gets a lot of dirt and wear and tear. Not ready to ill treat my new baby that way yet, but the Glock doesn't care.
    John

    Welcome John. Sound like your SW1911PD is your barbeque gun and the Glock is the work gun! You're right, the Glock doesn't care!
