Hello from Utah. My name is Brett. I have been a gun owner for the past 11 years. I currently own a Springfield 1911. A few months ago I recieved my CCW permit. I am currently looking for my carry gun.
Looking forward to hanging out here.

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.
