    Nice thing about Florida. I walked into the LGS and they had a P238 in stock. I walked out an hour later and was on my way to the range with a new gun. Love that 238.

    Yes, both in the same day! Really drove the 'esposa' balistic for 10 minutes (or six months, I can't never get the timelines right on when I am good or bad that way).

    Went to buy some HD T-shirts as gifts and rode out on a new Ultra Classic (the very best deal I ever made!), and then went to buy some ammo and left with a receipt (we have to wait to be really 'cooled off' in this state) for a firearm, which I picked up later.

    All I can say is the 'esposa' did not bludgeon me to death, and I'm still here

    I once bought a new barrel for my Contender to fit the case forming dies I found in a junk box in a gun store. Picked up the dies for $20 to make 256 Win Mag from .357 brass.

    ...... Am I the only one or does this happen to you?

    Once I pick it up I will post pictures and submit a range report. I had my Eye on this one for a while and it was #1 on my list, I just did not think it would be this soon!

    I live in WI so we have a wonderful 48 hour cool off period so I can get the gun in 44 hours, sixteen minutes and 32 seconds.

    I did write my reps and ask for the 48 hour wait to be removed for conceal carry permit holders. All I got was a group e mail.
    This happens to me all the time...It's a disease I call Gunorrhea.

    Gunorrhea - the burning desire to purchase a new gun every time you walk into a gun shop. Symptoms are excessive ammo discharge at the range and an uncontrollable urge to touch your piece. If left untreated, the infection can spread and cause ammorrhea (the inability to control your ammo storage). Some people with Gunorrhea have attempted to treat their disease by introducing themselves to new weapons such as knives, bows and crossbows but this "treatment" has been proven to cause the disease to spread rapidly to the new weapons. Currently, there are no known cures for Gunorrhea and it is still unknown as to how the disease is contracted.

    Happens to me every time... usually though its because of vacation... go home to visit my dad and it turns into something like "Hey wanna go to the gunstore?" so obviously I reply with a yes we can go look around... and on all 3 occasions I have walked out with some sort of firearm... my vacations are getting expensive.

    36 more hours of chill-in to go.
    Well at least we got our conceal carry last year. ( State #49 ) Now just got to fix the 48 hour wait for our permit holders.


    I got to return to the store again, I hope I don't buy another gun. (do not make eye contact with the glass case, just walk by)

    At least it's only a 2 day cooling off period! A lot of states are a heck of a lot worse. Here in Georgia, All I have to do is flash my Weapons Carry License and badda bing badda boom, the gun is mine.

    Well that, and pay them lots of money.

    Yep, I've avoided the gun counter at my range for the last 4 months because I KNOW if I go look and hold one, one will be following me home. I am holding off till after the new year, only about a month longer :(

    Congrats on the new sig.

    Here it is!
    sig M11-A1.jpg

    Looks to be well made. Field strips easy. Now I have to build ammo and go to range on Sat get it sighted in.
    They offered me free range pass at the store but since today is black friday there was a couple hour wait for a lane.

    Need holster, I have a Galco Summer Comfort for this gun but it pinches me, I am thinking Crossbreed supertuck??
    other ideas??
