So, two and a half weeks after ordering my new gun, I got it today. I don't have my concealed carry permit yet, so I had to wait for the background check to finish, the police station where I live (a pretty small city) was too lazy to actually look at my information on the form that was sent to them. The woman there saw the last name and recognized it from my father who just had his permit renewed, so she didn't bother doing the background check (she didn't bother to look at first name, bate of birth, SSN) After waiting another week for her to get back from vacation the guys at the gun store where I ordered the gun called her today and finally got her to run the check, which, of course, came up fine. So here's my present: These boxes are nicer than their old tupperware style boxes. Gotta have ammo!! I've already put 100 rounds through it at the range today. The recoil is totally managable, not really any different from a 9mm. I can't wait until I get my new recoil spring so I can try out the hotter loads I have. 767ft-lbs FTMFW.
