    Welcome from Montana.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Welcome from another Utahn.

    You mentioned you already have a Springfield 1911, but are looking for a “carry gun.” You might want to try carrying your Springfield while you’re looking. A full-sized 1911 has been my primary carry gun for a number of years, and has worked well for me. If you try it, you might find it’s not all that bad to carry.

    We have a local practice group, The Utah Polite Society (www.UtahPoliteSociety.org) that gets together to shoot on the first Saturday of each month. I’d like to invite you to come shoot with us. I think you’d find it interesting.
