Welcome! Congratulations on making a wise decision.
BTW, you might want to consider getting a concealed carry permit from Maine. They issue, by mail, to anyone over 18 that passes their simple requirements, and of course Utah honors all permits. That would make you legal to conceal in Utah, when necessary, but more importantly it would enable you to OC fully-loaded.
The Maine permit requires an education class, but it doesn't have to be a Maine class. You can take a Utah CFP class and use the document the instructor gives you as proof of education. The Utah CFP class is a good idea if you're going to carry anyway, because it will help you understand the use of force laws, etc. Hopefully b1ack5mith (who just did this, at age 19) will chime in here with details on the Maine permit process.
