    Welcome to Payson! I live next door in Santaquin. We need to start talking about that open carry meet. Hell, I am willing to drive to the Layton Hills Mall for this one, who's with me?

    While Layton hills mall may be fun to prove a point, I don’t think it would be the best place. After all aren’t we trying to prove we are respectable citizens and not out to cause a scene?



    That being said, Layton hills mall sounds like a lot more fun than some city park…..lol



    We should try for some Pizza place or something like that, makes it easier than a BBQ

    Keep your eyes on the classifieds. I have a friend who picked up a S&W M64 (I think thatwas the model, it’s a .38 w/ a 2" barrel) for $100. I saw a Hi-point .380 and 9mm for $70 on KSL.com just a day or 2 ago. While not the best guns out there it beats being without and any gun that costs less that an hours worth of ammoat the range has my Thumbs up for a good buy when it’s that orgoing without. Then just pick up a $5 uncle mikes holster and it will tide you over for a while. Then after you do get your XD just sell the cheap-o gun for $10 less than you paidor eventhe same priceand include the holster and maybe a handful of ammo as a "bonus".

    The Sheriffs range is free till the 10th of AUGat least. It should be free as long as the ban is in effect.

    hey guys check this out, i know it probably isnt the best, but does it look okay to start? (or is it too low of a caliber?)

    http://gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=77649512

    but u can put in magnum rounds in it! and ive heard that .22 mags can get 1700-2200 fps not too shabby! (if u can find a reeeeally nice mushrooming round!)

    I would pick up something a little bigger 9mm, .357-.38, .40, .45.

    9mm is usually the cheapest to shoot, and with hollow point roundsyou won’t have to worry about stopping someone if you need to. A .22 will kill, but not usually stop howeverIf you just want to plink at the range a .22 is just fine

    If you are looking for an inexpensive first pistol, head down to Cal Ranch in Spanish Fork. My brother bought a 9MM HiPoint pistol there for around $100 to $150. Not the best piece in the world, but it is a good shooter. It hasn't fallen apart yet!

    As you can see on my avatar, I carry a Glock 23. It is chambered in .40 S&W. So if you ever see a Glock on the hip of someone in the Payson Wal-Mart, it is probably me. As for something prettier for $200, go to Van Wagenens or Gunnies in Orem. The usually have some good deals on used pistols. That is where I bought my AR and my wifes Glock, respectively.

    Can you keep an eye out for a S&W 637 (for my wife) and a S&W 329 4" (for me). Please???

    I hear that Van Wagenens is darn good place to find a shooter, I might even come down and visit.

    In my estimates, I am the furthest south, and I am guessing that someone in Layton is furthest north. (See Layton Hills Mall Thread) The mid point being about 12300 South. Maybe an OCDO meet near there soon?

    Yeah, we can go to IKEA to get our "Weapons Free" I am tired of paying for them anyways. Last I heard, we can't go shooting in the hills yet because of the fire danger.

    Van Wagenens is a good place to find a gun. They know their stuff and have good prices. However there are a few tricks to make it a good experience.

    First: Wear something nice. If you show up in a suit or shirt and tie you will get treated like royalty, if you show up in shorts and a T-shirt you will be treated like garbage.

    Second: Respect. Ask if you can rack the slide, dry fire, holster, etc. Don't just assume you can. If you ask they will generally let you, if not you will get chewed into.

    Third: If you don’t know something, don’t pretend you do. I think this is a good rule everywhere. Not everyone is an ex-seal who can fieldstrip every gun in existence while blindfolded, and just because "your friend said" it doesn’t make it true. If you have questions ask... It’s the best way to learn and keep your dignity.
