Picked up a used Mil-Spec Springfield last night for $399. Happy birthday to me (it really is today ). Going to the range after work to try it out. The previous owner took great care of it. I have the box and instructions. The only thing is he put Colt grips on it! No ponies allowed on my Springer!
When I get nice wood grips it should look more like this:
May you enjoy your present.
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

By the looks of your picture, you don't look old enough to be buying pistols! Don't tell us you made a straw purchase....

Happy Birthday, and that is a very nice present !

UPDATE - Range report.
I shot like crap yesterday, at first. I thought "maybe I got a lemon". After I warmed up all was fine. It fed hollow points fine and was accurate. I'm very pleased.
The grips are ordered and the Rafter S holster is too!
Nice score, i know that feeling well, have fun shooting the piss out of it.
