    Got my PS90!

    Well, after lusting for this over a year - I final;ly got one - In black too (I didn'tw ant a green one)

    Unfortunately, my rails still haven't come in the mail yet. So, I can't mount my Eotech and other stuff yet. I guess I'll wait until next weekend to shoot it. If I go tomorrow, I'll just have to go again next week to sight in the eotech. So, I'll wait.

    Its really kewl, though. Cleaned it already, and got an extra mag for it as well

    - actually, even with the long barrel, its shorter than most other rifles.

    I've decided, its not worth $500 or so to make the barrel 4 or 5 inches shorter. I'm not gonna do it. Its so short as it is. And, I like the extra velocity gained from the longer barrel.

    I do have the ATF forms being mailed to me anyway. And, it is was just the $300 for the barrel and new flash supressor, I might be tempted. But another $200 for the tax stamp on top of that is too much. I'd have to sell a pistol to pay for it unless I waited another 2-3 years to save up the cash.

    I've run outta stuff to sell (I sold a telescope and a pistol I won to buy this PS90), and with a child on the way, my gun spending spree days are over.

    Luckily, there are no pistols I want. And the only other gun I want now is an AR. And, that will have to wait. Once my child is 4 or 5, maybe I'll buy a $200 target 22.

    Is that the current asking price for a 4 to 5 year old? I'd have thought it would be more ...

    Funny - U know what I meant - that'll I buy one then to get the child into shooting.

    I shot a Walther P22 recently - 22 cartridge doesn't do anything for me. So, I don't need one now. But later...

    Well, besides spending time - I figured that it is a good way to educate about the dangers of guns. So the child doesn't "play" with them

    It really does look better in black.

    How's it balance and what capacity are the magazines?

    It balances well. And, the mags hold 50 rounds. I was impressed with it when I shot one 2x last weekend. I put 150 rounds thru 'em altogether. Even with the long barrel on it, its shorter than if I had a handgun in my hand with my arms held out to aim it. It's really kewl

    Since I am right handed and left eye dominate, I've always confined myself to handguns - never owned a rifle before. Never really had an interest.

    At first, I thought the Storm carbine was kinda kewl, and I contemplated getting one. I've rented one 2x, but the last time, I decided I didn't like it afterall.

    I can't wait to try this one out with the Eotech and other stuff I am attaching. And, I went ahead and ordered a sling for it last night finally. I really have spent all my money already, but I told my wife - "I have over $2k invested in this when all is said and done. Do you reallyw ant me to drop it?"

    Congrats Ship. It was a long wait. But, that makes it all the more better when you finally get it. It looks great. I love this 5 7 cartridge.

    I've never seen one of those before. Guess I'm showing my ignorance. Looks like something out of a sci-fi movie.

    The advantages of a long barrel in a compact package. Now you've got your new HD weapon of choice. That is after you put some rounds through it of course.

    Hell, if I didn't have to deal with locking my guns up soon because of a baby on the way, I'd keep this sucker by the bed. 50 rounds. It will have a laser and light mounted, and it sticks out less when shouldered than a handgun would with my arms extended. A GREAT home defense gun.

    But, unfortunately, it will have to be locked up in my closet

    Until your child starts growing tall enough just put a rifle rack beside the bed high enough it cant be reached by kids and move the rifle there at bedtime!There are MANY ways to keep your guns out of kids hands and STILL have them readily accessible if needed(where is your handgun kept at night??? where a child might reach it?)
