    I finally saved up enough cash to head on down to the local shop, and after a few days wait I was able to take my first purchase home. Picked up a used H&K USP .40. Came with 2 mags and night sights for $625. Apparently, I'm also a photography n00b. Grainy photos ahead!

    Probably should have taken this picture from the side with the ejection port, but I'm too lazy to right now.

    Negative. I've only had experience with firearms a handful of times, no LE/military training. Definitely plan on getting plenty of trigger time in and we'll see where it goes from there.

    It still is a great place to live. Problem is, it's in The People's Republic of IL :o My parents still live there and probably will until my dad retires.

    Great schools, low crime, property values have skyrocketed in the past few years, lots of corporate headquarters are there or close. It's just that whole second amendment infringement thing that made me really want to leave.

    I just recently got the P2000 and loved it.
