    Hello from St. George, UT

    Hey there y'all. I moved to St. George, UT, from outside Dallas, TX, about two years ago due to work. Over the past several years, I have given considerable thought (and way too much internet time) to conceal carry. I finally took made the first steps over the course of the past couple months. What spurred this on? Well, it was a conflux of things.

    1. New Year's Resolution: I am determined to purge my house of all unnecessary things. As a result, I've come across several things to sell on eBay. One was a collection of books, 57 Library of America titles. Another was guitar pedals that I had not played in some time.

    2. A LGS offered free cfp classes to all educators in the county. How could I say no to that? If money was an excuse, which it had been, I no longer had it. I took the class. My wife took it with me even though she had to pay.

    3. Because of the things I've sold on eBay, I was flush with cash. In fact, in the past couple months, I was able to buy the following things: a Beretta Nano, a minivault gun safe, a range bag, eye and ear protection, a cleaning kit, and a Theis IWB holster and mag pouch (because the Nano comes with a 6 rd. and 8rd mags).

    I mailed in my cfp paperwork and check on Feb. 1, and I reckon/hope to get it before mid-March. When I took the Utah cfp class, I paid an $15 ($15 total) for the Arizona cfp as well. I'll send that paperwork to AZ at the beginning of the summer. So assuming everything goes through as it should, I will be able to carry in Utah (and all 32 states that have reciporcity, which doesn't include AZ, NV, or NM [hey, guess which states I drive through when I go back to Texas?]), and I'll be able to carry in AZ, NV, and NM (so my whole route back to Texas).

    I just got the Theis holster in the mail on Sat. The kydex is super-tight, may have to loosen it a bit, but will wait the suggested two weeks. I've been cc around the house, can't carry outside of the house until my cfp comes in. It's different than I expected. Hope it begins to feel "normal" in a couple weeks.
