    Hello from No. Cal

    Hello all. New member from Northern California (not the good part). Just took the Utah non-resident concealed carry class and I'm starting to look at carry options for traveling out of state. Looking forward to learning a lot here.

    Half the class revolved around Utah law. It's almost 180 degrees different than California. I wish we could move but we're stuck for a few more years. Fortunately my son went off to Arizona for college and I'll get to spend more time there.

    Welcome from SE Pennsylvania. With a gun owning son who works in and leaves near San Mateo I have a real feeling for your situation as a gun owners around your turf.
    You will read a lot of posts here in the specific forums about concealed and open carry. I have been carrying for decades. Based upon that learning experience I suggest that the first things you consider does not include guns for carrying. That comes later. First step is to do some analysis. Assuming you will be concealed carrying, you have to consider gun selection based upon body size, hand size compared to gun size and grip size. That affects capacity so you need to decide what capacity you feel is enough. Get that figured out, and selecting the gun will be easier. Just ignore cheap advice and instant recommendations from people who have no clue to your specific fit within the questions above. Most of all, when you have a list of guns for consideration try to rent them to see how they work for you. Good luck in your quest.
