    Newcomer

    I'm moving to Utah next year from Washington State. What do I need to know as far as basic Utah State gun laws? I have a current Concealed Carry License from WA and I think there's reciprocity between our States but am open to advice from the long-time members.

    I'm also looking for an area with fairly inexpensive land where my wife and I could rent or buy a 1-5 acre plot to start a small canopy-styled organic earth-sheltered permaculture farm. Any ideas? I'm open to suggestions. I may sound hippy but I'm conservative and all that mumbo jumbo means is my garden will use less fuel, be more efficient, make me more food, and eventually, do it all with less daily work from me. Thanks.

    PS: I LOVE open carry. Hope the neighbors don't mind.

    Wait! Isn't Utah the home of those zombie cows from that zombie cow thread that refuses to stay dead?

    Man, oh man, you're gonna need serious firepower to escape zombie cows.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    No, no. Go for it. It only adds to the mystique. Outside of some of the report threads like "OCing in Sometown", that is the oldest, most deadest, but comingest back to life thread in the history of the forum. It simply won't stay dead. And, since its about zombie cows, that's the whole point--undead.

    Cool Welcome To Utah

    Welcome to Utah. Utah recognizes the permit / license of any other State and Utah Law recognizes them as being equivalent to a Utah Permit for the purposes of a Utah Gun Free School Zone (GFSZ). However, Federal Law does not. Thus, rather than having to avoid GFSZ locations, I recommend you obtain a Utah Permit so there will be no ambiguity. Many on this forum are both NRA Certified and Utah Department of Public Safety Certified Firearms Instructors so look one of us up when you get here.

    Your question about "cheap land" is not so easy to answer. Utah is in the high country desert and water is a valued commodity. And, even if you can find land with a natural water source, you may not be able to tap into it because of "water rights". You may have to end up locating your garden in a remote rural location and hauling water.
