    Excellent looking pistol, congratulations! A 1911 for your first "very own" pistol is a great way to start. Absolutely you should get your carry permit now, your personal safety is the issue.

    Great gun. Nothing like going with one of the best for your first.

    Good to see a fellow Redskins fan here as well. In TX. of all places.

    Yep, I've been to tons of Cowboys games with my Redskins jersey on. And I'm going to my first Texans game this weekend. Go Skins! Growing up, my dad really didn't care what team I rooted for, he was just happy I liked football. I've been lucky to have been surrounded by lots of supportive people... this thread looks to have that quality too.

    Congratulations, Wendy. Nice pistol. I don't know if it was luck that he got the Warthog. Jonathan has more experience in gun design than we do and probably had and inkling as to what would work for you. Then he had you try some 1911s and Paras just to confirm his choice. If you ask him I'm sure he will agree with me. Then that will be his story and he will stick with it.

    Enjoy the Warthog and get that CHL.

    You're right. He deserves more credit... he's a very smart and savvy guy. And boy, am I happy.
