Yeah...but keep in mind that this is the list of still valid permits.  Utah has been issuing permits for close to 2 decades now, if not a bit more.  Not unreasonable that a large number of the early holders my be dead, or out of state may not have renewed.

The permit numbers may represent the total issued with representing the current valid permits.
While there has been maybe 2 decades of permits issued, I seriously doubt that 2.4 million of them forgot to renew or died. Maybe half a million. Maybe.

 :thumbup1  Nice! 
*sigh*  Why couldn't I have got that AZ job?

Huh... That doesn't look like it has the upwardly angled barrel like the .45 Colt and .44 Mag versions have.  Nice! 
Does it shoot point of aim, point of impact with hot magnum loads?

Rifles / New Rossi R92 and a funny story.
« Last post by JesseL on Today at 02:03:07 PM »
So I've been itching to get a lever action for a long time and my latest tax return made now seen like a good time to take the plunge. This little .357 seems like a good way to go for a handy, walking around rifle.

I put in an order with Davidson's/Gallery of Guns and since they're local I can pick it up at the warehouse and save shipping and COD charges.

I stopped by the credit union to pick up a cashier's check to take out to Davidson's to pay for my new rifle.  I let the teller take a look at my invoice so she could get the payee and order number right on the check.

She looks at it and says to me "Oh I love lever actions! I've got a .45-70 and a .45 Long Colt. Both with octagon barrels."

No doubt Prescott is the gunniest town around. :shocked :thumbup1

Activism and Gun Politics / Interesting numbers from Utah- CCW permits
« Last post by mqondo on Today at 09:55:57 AM »
Here are the stats from Utah's BCI (Bureau of Criminal Identification). It doesn't appear that the CFP number represents the actual number of permits issued. Total number of valid permits as of the end of 2015 was 632,276. Two thirds of that number are non-residents.

Info for that number is on page 4.

A non-resident Utah CCW permit gets you legal in 31 states.  That makes it a very popular permit outside of Utah.

The number represents total permits issued, we don't have a different numbering system for resident vs. non-resident.

A couple of notes about CCW in Utah-

1. We passed Constitutional Carry, but the Governor vetoed it.   It's back up this legislative session, and looks to have a lot more support behind it.   

2.  The co-worker with the 3+ million number?  He and his father turned in their paperwork at the exact same time, to the same clerk at the BCI office-  and their permits are over 4,000 numbers apart.  So it would seem to be a pretty busy place to work.

Having not known that the French police use the Sig 2022, I thought that was pretty cool.
The gun was originally named the SigPro.  The Frenchies ordered a variant of it to be their standard police weapon, with the contract stipulating that the guns had to last at least until... The year 2022.  Hence the name.  Sig decided to market that variant, and reused the name.

Oh...  drop tested... :facepalm

Yes, I totally missed that the first time.  I though you were referencing drop tests for the police trials.
