    Got my first one today

    Finally got my PP today, drove straight to Ed's Gun Shop near the house, plopped down $523. inc tax, and it's mine. Took it home, loaded the mags, and it's ready. Looking forward to never needing it. Anyway, I'm a real member now. Let the knowledge flow forth!

    Pix are in the mixer.

    For the record, Ed's is a heck of a place. Great prices, little strong on ammo. If it's OK I'll post a link he has a forum that's mostly for posting wish lists, checking stock, pricing etc.

    Pretty embarrassing picture, I took a couple quick shots with my otherwise pretty good point & shoot. I'll get another one made and edit this post, but you get the idea.

    XD 40 Jimmy. I shot it for the first time yesterday felt very solid in my hand. We went back to Ed's before going to the range, attempting to buy a very nice used Browning Buck Mark .22 for Laurie. Gone, as he said it would be, looked like new for $100 less than new. We bought a new one, long barrel, and she really likes it. Whew!

    She's not a bad shot either! We came home, cleaned 'em up, probably going back today. As for being a noob in this world, we're starting to feel more assured this will be a long term romance. Looking forward to spending time here as our hobby expands.

    Very nice gun! Although I'm a little biased seeing as how I just picked up my XD .40 last Friday! Absolutely love it!
