    My very first gun!

    I just recently went to a gun store to buy myself a used Sig P226 .40 S&W for $599 certified preowned. Had to wait 10 days and was scheduled to pick it up this coming Monday the 6th. Today I went in to canceled that gun and they had a P220R Equinox in stock and on sale. Price was $999 and they had it on sale for $910 brand new! So now I have to wait another 10 days due to CA laws. The reason for the change is that it looks so much better than the regular P226. Im sure there are a lot of people here agree with me that the Equinox is a pretty sweet looking gun! I am so excited now. I wont be able to pick it up until the 11th now but its well worth the wait!!! The P220R Equinox is a limited production and only comes in a .45ACP.

    Congrats on the purchase! Post up some pics and a range report when you're finally able to bring it home.

    Can't go wrong with a Sig that's for sure you would have liked the 226 but the P220R Equinox is a good one no question.

    +1 on that...congrats on your acquisition. Luckily, here in TX, only have to wait about 2 minutes and your out the door carrying a brand new stuffed plastic box.

    Congrats! Surprisingly, here in the Soviet of Washington*, not only can you fill out the fed forms, pay, and leave -- I've found gun sellers to be the only vendors left in the world who will take a check. Of course, if you've just filled out a 24-page form and gotten an FBI background check, I suppose they figure they know where to find you. Also, I don't know about others, but I'm too much of a chicken to pass a bad check to a store that has a Ma deuce** in the showroom (only $12,000 if you have the right license).


    * A 1930s-era Republican comment was that the US was made up of 47 states and the "Soviet of Washington."

    ** The M2 .50-caliber machine gun. Accept no substitutes.

    WOW in CA you have to wait 10 days AGAIN just because you want a different gun? That's ridiculous...at least in FL you fill out the form and whatnot and wait 5 days (if you don't have a CCW) then if you change your mind you don't have to wait cause you already waited. You just need to fill out a different form. You've already been checked out via the quick background check call.

    That's my understanding.


    Congrats anyway and enjoy.

    I think it's because in FL the background check is good for 30 days, then you have to have it called in again.

    Be gentle, RamRod! He told us he has to wait until the 11th to show us pics! Better be here on the 11th, though, cquence, we'll be watching for them. Get the camera tuned up. After we've waited for 10 days to see it, I think that we deserve a range report as well. WE DON'T LIKE TO WAIT!!!
