    Now I went and done it

    Well, today I go to the local candy store (Uncle Paul's Exchange) just to check on my mauser I have there on consignment. I walk through the door and WOW is it packed! Take a number please...

    I'm standing waiting for a break in the action and the shop owner (REALLY nice guy BTW) tells me that he finally received a Ruger SP101 that I've wanted to look at. After an eternity waiting until he had a free moment to get it from the lockup area in the back room, he finally handed me the box.

    Opened it up and I was tickled. SP101 in .357 with the 3 1/16" barrel. Sweet! It points well, fit my hand ok (new grips for fat mitts required here) and just begged me to fondle it.

    So, how much? I asked casually while concealing the LUST in my heart.

    Oh, not much. Paul replied.

    Long story short, the deed was done, the money was laundered, and the crime concealed in the petty cash receipts drawer.

    Now I just gotta wait 10 days. OH MAN, another eternity.

    Yea the 10 day thing sucks, especially since every day you go there to fondle your new sweety your going to have to take a number.

    Congrats.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Congratulations on the purchase, but the 10 day wait is a bummer. Do you have your CCW permit? Here, a CCW permit does away with any waiting period.

    10 days sucks!! I love my SP101. Has been tons of fun to shoot so far. I will say that I can only shoot about 15-20 rounds of full house .357s before my hand betrays me and quits. .38s are a dream to shoot!!
    God Bless America!!

    10 Days!?!?! We don't get it. We're guessing that being that you're in Kali you can't carry either (those rights are reserved for LEO, felons, and VIP's). We don't get it...

    Those Ruger Revolvers are great and almost indestructible, not to mention great shooters, nice grab!

    I'm in California it's true. BUT, the 10 day wait is only exempt for LEO.

    I do carry and have my permit. It does exempt me from the "firearms safety card" requirement but it doesn't exempt me from the 10-day "cooling off period." Which is idiotic since I was ALREADY carrying a loaded weapon when I bought the new one.

    This one is going to be my "trail gun" for when I'm out in the real boonies. It will eventually be listed on my permit so I can carry it in town as well but that won't happen until after about 1000 rounds down range. And a trigger job. And new grips. And...
