Hello all! This has probably been covered, but my brother lives in CO and wanted to get me a XD(M) for my 20th birthday. Is it legal? If so how can we go about doing this?
Announcements and Introductions / Utah Resident Outside Of Utah
« Last post by Uinta Firearms on February 04, 2015, 09:42:48 PM »
For some of you on UCC this is old news.

My name is Connor.  I'm a Utah resident, born and raised, but haven't lived in the borders of Utah since 1/25/09.  I miss it a lot and wish I could home to raise my 2 boys, but Uncle Sam has other plans.  Before you get all giddy, I'm not the active servicemember, although I am a veteran of the Marines.  My wife is now active duty in the Navy.  I just play the roll of spouse, which is tougher than being a grunt in the Corp.

We're currently at Great Lakes, IL, and have been here since July 2012.  We are moving to Philadelphia in July of this year so my wife can begin working on her Masters Degree, which the Navy will be paying.  We are very fortunate for that.

As for myself, I learned a very painful lesson that I've been resisting since leaving Utah.  I now understand why there are so many dependopotamii in the military community.  Employers don't want to hire somebody who will be leaving in a few short years, so I've started working on becoming my own employer.  My user name, Uinta Firearms, is the name of my firearms training business, Uinta Firearms Training, Inc.  It is HQ'd in Midvale, but I've established foreign entities whenever I move, and discontinued those foreign entities when I leave that area.  Yeah, the taxation sucks, but it's worth it for the stability.

Uinta Firearms Training, Inc is a subsidiary of Uinta Preparations, Corp.  Uinta Preparations, Corp has other subsidiaries currently in the development stages.  The main reason being, I understand being a firearms instructor is not going to provide a comfortable standard of living, but it does create a foundation to build upon so a comfortable standard of living can be earned.  In 6 months I hope to say farewell to the last employer I ever have to work for.

Because I'm a firearms instructor and business owner, I am also politically active.  Since concealed carry became a reality in Illinois I have been actively involved in elections, repealing Gun Free Zones, rallies, town hall meetings, etc.  I've also fought against the AWB created by the town I live in that was a response to Illinois permitting concealed carry.  Because of my work in that matter I put a very big target on my back.  The antis are waiting for me to screw up.

At this point I'm looking forward to moving to the Philly suburbs.  It's much more pro 2A.  I could use the rest and relaxation.

Any questions for me?  Ask away.

Rifles and Shotguns / Help with a Franchi I-12
« Last post by CDBank on November 13, 2014, 12:54:23 AM »
I am needing some help getting my shotgun up and running again.
So this is the story: I left for two years on my mission and my franchi shotgun was left in my dads safe with the action open.
the problem: When firing it does not eject the round, when done manually it doesn't do well sliding the next shell into the chamber and the bolt does not close without me having to apply force.
My hypothesis: The inertia driven system of the Franchi I-12 is based on the spring under the hand guard. I think that after leaving the bolt open for so long it has lost its strength.  I dont know how easy that is to repair? Or where I would get one?
Am I on the right track? What can I do to fix it?
or if i'm out of my league repairing it at home, where should i go to fix it, and how much?

Announcements and Introductions / Moving from Commia-fornia to awesome Utah

O'lo Utah Firearm Owners,

I am glad that I was able to source out this website for fellow Utah gun owners. My preference to shoot are 1911's .45acp firearms. I currently own 5 of them. My avatar is my first 1911, a Para Warthog, she was a Regal SS Model but I got her cerakoted in Midnight Blue w/Burnt Bronze accents. My other Para is an Elite Ionbond full size.I was able to score a safe queen NBF a Para C7.LDA. I also have two Rugers, P345 & SR45. And on the 28th I acquire my first wheel-gun, a S&W 625-8 Professional Jim Miculek Series. .45acp of course. Now, I just need to acquire a handful of speed loaders and ton of moonclips  :D

Would someone be kind enough to advise me of some gun ranges in the Pleasant Grove, Lehi, American Fork area. I prefer indoor ranges but I am also eager to shoot open as well.

Thank you for assistance.

All the best,

~ Seraph67 ~

Howdy. I'm moving to UT for my job, so I'm here to keep up with the local shooting community. I'm from AZ, so I'm very lucky to be moving to another gun friendly state.

I'm especially looking forward to any pistol competitions, particularly steel USPSA or facsimile. If you know of any in the Provo / Draper area, please let me know.

Rifles and Shotguns / Marlin Model 60 trigger problem
« Last post by LiveFreeOrDie on May 19, 2014, 01:19:41 PM »
Inherited this rifle knowing nothing about it's condition. It's an early model 60, tube fed. Trouble is it won't fire and the amount of travel on the trigger doesn't seem to be right. I think the problem is the trigger doesn't pull back far enough and provide enough movement. Before I attempt to take it apart or more than likely replace it I hope someone has any advice on how to verify if there's a problem with the action or the trigger. How far does the trigger mechanism move? Mine seems to only move a few mm, not more than 3/16". I inspected the action which looks fine and can manually trigger the firing pin. Inspected the trigger assembly and can not find anything broken other than the lack of travel. Before I tear it apart or replace it I thought I'd ask for some advice. Searched youtube, google etc and was unable to find anyone with the same problem.
Hello all, I moved to Park City a couple years ago. Hoping some kind locals out there can tell me where to go shooting?  I'm aware of the ranges but looking for outdoor, public lands where shooting is allowed. I'm responsible, don't leave trash and always police my brass. I also wouldn't mind finding some shooting buddies (the responsible and safe kind!) to go with, especially if there are any fellow USMC veterans out there. Thank you!
