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

Very nice, except for that icky long barrel.
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.
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?
Congrats on your new weapon. It'll interesting to see it all decked out. Good luck with it.
Cool! Congratulations SW, I know you have been wanting one for a while.
Congratulations - we know how long you've been lusting after one!
Looking forward to the range report
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.
But, unfortunately, it will have to be locked up in my closet
I know I am getting a bit ahead of the curve (I've got some time before I have a kid that can get to a gun), but for years I have left handguns scattered all over the house. I need to teach myself now, because if I make a mistake 1 time, there can be lifelong consequences. So, I'm getting used to locking things in the closet now, and planning out everything. Plus, I am one that looks at all the options and plans for the worse case scenario all the time.

I'm still staring at this gun _ I can't believe I finally got one

Ok mebbe this will help
Breathe deeply in thru your nose and out thru your mouth
repeat as necessary
I'm reminded of one of Dan Akroyd's lines from Ghostbusters - "He's an ugly little spud." But it does look fun.
Re: you cross-dominance (my problem also.) Is the Eotech going to help that or are you going to shoot left handed?
