Welcome Neil. I hope you enjoy living among the "yanks". When it comes to shooting
you will think you died and went to heaven. Enjoy it while you can because the right to
own guns is rapidly being taken away from us.

My son and his wife are being transferred to London for 2 years once this COVID stuff is ironed out.

Ben to the United Kingdom many times. Very nice to visit. I suspect you will love the United States. Will try to stay away from politics but know that many Eastern States are very gun restrictive due to this. State of Utah is very good. Getting used to the driving difference will be challenging. Welcome and good luck!

Welcome aboard. It's refreshing to see a Brit(?) who is enthusiastic about gun ownership. My UK friends are primarily ex -Army and never shared my enthusiasm. Hope your transition to the colonies goes smoothly.

Welcome.

UTAH is a very gun friendly state. Salt Lake City itself is pretty liberal, but they mostly keep that craziness in the city.

What part of Utah are you moving too?

Welcome to the site..& an early welcome to the U.S,A.
I believe you'll like it here. (Greetings from S.E. Michigan.. aka Motown, (Detroit metro area)
Save all the $ you can before you get here, 'cause if you like 1911's, you may find they're incredibly habit forming.
Start with a Govt. model in 45 acp, then you'll need/ want a Commander-sized one to keep it company.
Next, will be a 1911 in a different caliber..9mm is a great choice, as well as 10mm or 40 S&W.
Did you forget, you'll need/want an Officer sized one , for a carry piece...
