    Cant wait for the 10 day waiting period to go by. :wiggle:

    They gave me a box of Hydra-shok hollow points to try out...

    Also, what is the difference in all the night sights, I was going to pick up a set, but dont know what way to go.

    Meprolights.

    And find a Walmart that sells Winchester 100 round value packs of 9mm in a white box. It's anywhere from 11~13 dollars. It's the best deal and it's GOOD shootin' ammo. For defense rounds, don't shoot anything high velocity...get some Winchester Ranger SXT. It's awesome.

    Grats bro!

    According to the very knowledgable sales lady at my local walmart, no walmart has sold ammunition for the past 2 years :rolleyes:

    Anybody know of a wallmart in the bay area which does sell 9mm?
     
  8. i dont think california walmarts sell guns or ammo.

    and the best way to get ammo is to make friends with a gun store employee, then go to a large chain that price matches, and tell them the other store has blah blah for $____.

    I get cases of 9mm for $89 :mamoru2:

    Are there any loopholes with this hi-cap mag law in CA? Is there a way that I can legally get a mag that holds more than 10 rounds?

    You need to get a friend working at a gun shop to help you rip off a store. Yay morals.

    you can't go to another state and buy 17 round mags?

    that would suck if you couldn't.

    A lot! Shot about 100 rounds through it today. :big grin: Only other semi auto I've ever shot was a Taurus PT 111 and the Glock feels 100X better.

    Waiting periods. :mamoru:

    When I bought my G21 I was out of the store, Glock in hand, in about 25 minutes.
