    Awesome start! My only nit-pick critique would be to have others help proof read for spelling and grammer. The better we present ourselves verbally, the lesslikely we are to be seen as nut-job fringe lurkers. (Also, my parents were teachers and that stuff was pounded into me from birth. Didn't always work, but I'm always looking over my shoulder for Mom's ruler when I type...)

    And now I'm off to introduce me pots to my kettles...:?

    Oh, right, I remember reading somewhere on there that they don't allow people with cowboy hats.

    While I appreciate your passion and enthusiasm, I think that another website/forum would cause the OC community to be spread too thin. We already have utahconcealedcarry.com (which promotes OC and organizes OC events) and OpenCarry.org (national resource for OC, complete with a Utah section).

    I love the idea of building a website full of useful information (Utah/federal gun law, OC principles in general), I think it could be a valuable resource to OCers, CCers, and especially people who are ignorant of Utah laws and our rights as citizens (I would love a good, concise site to send them to!).

    Another forum would just create clutter, IMO. What if someone joins your forum and fails to hear of a UCC event? What if someone on UCC fails to hear of a rally or shoot that might be posted on your forum, but nobody bothered to mention it on UCC, thinking someone else would take the initiative?

    Again, I think it is admirable that you are passionate enough to undertake a project like this, and I am being sincere when I say that, but perhaps just linking to UCC and/or OpenCarry.org would be more beneficial for the community (in regards to forums, not necessarily your other content).

    Just a few critiques from me.

    1. Spelling errors. We don't want to look like we are a bunch of uneducated people with guns.

    2. The slogan "Because We Can". Different people have different reasons for openly carrying a firearm. I don't think there are many that do it just because they can.

    3. This sentence.
    30 plus Gun packing Utahans invade the local Sweet Tomatoes
    I refrain from using the word "packing". I personally don't like it. To me it implies concealment. Maybe this is just because of the ill fated packing.org website. Also, we did not "invade" Sweet Tomatoes. We were graciously allowed to dine there by Brenda, the restaurant manager.

    Ya, spelling errors all over the place, and punctuation. I agree that we have enough forums, so I would link over to these instead (right to the utah home page).

    I do like the overall look/layout, but would rephrase the things already mentioned - "packing" & "invade" should go.
