    First gun paid in full!

    I purchased my first gun today. Springfield XD 4" 9mm. Just waiting for the 3 day cooling off period to go pick it up(even though I already cooled off for 2 months while waiting for my FOID, 12 months waiting for my settlement check, and another 4 months waiting for the wife's FOID).

    I wanted to thank everyone on here for all of the information during the past year, and I'll post pics and a range report when I can finally take it to the range and take pictures of it!

    That was a very wise choice for a gun, let alone the first one. I've got a FOID Escort. LOL

    Congratulations!

    Not only for the gun, but for enduring such a long process.

    Great persistence. I loved my 4" XD (.40 S&W). I was sad to part with it but I REALLY needed the money at the time. One of the best fitting/performing guns on the plastic fantastic market. Kudos.

    Firearms Owners Identification card, which you are (well, law-abiding citizens) required to obtain from the state police in order to own/purchase a handgun. It looks similar to a driver's license, with your description, picture, address, etc.

    I definitely do not miss those days. I have a similar card nowadays that actually lets me carry a firearm in public! What a concept!
