Default Stage 4: We have liftoff!

Ladies & Gentlemen of FTF, the day has finally come...can hardly believe it after so long (and coincidentally today is the expiry of my 1 year probationary pistol licence)

But....

(/drumroll optional)


At last I have taken possession of my first firearm! (damn that feels weird to say). Hard for the fact to sink in really...its taken long enough. But all that myriad hoop-jumping/bureaucratic arse-kissing/form-filling has paid off...*WOOT*


Now let the gunporn begin! (ha been waiting to type that lol)












Sorry for the sizes. Kinda wish I'd brushed the lint off it first too lol

Transport-ready (inside that compulsory locked box)





Tomorrow get to see how it runs in competition (sorry no 'range report' as such just an adrenal-fuelled few minutes of mayhem!). Might be able to get to an indoor range next week too see its performance in a more controlled fashion, with some luck.

Haven't wiped this grin off my face all day. Can I say it again? Woot

Congratulations. I didn't even notice the lint until you mentioned it.......I was too busy looking at the gun!!! Have fun with it. It's a beauty, for sure.

Thanks Shi. Don't think your advice is going to be a problem, heh.


You guys had to be the first to know

Most excellent my friend. I love me some Smith & Wesson and my MP especially.
Can’t wait to see your first shoot. Wish I could be there.

zhuk,
From the looks of it, I don't think we could knock that smile off your face with a shovel!

Congratulations Sir!!! Now you must go and fire one round for every registered member on the forum to allow us to celebrate with you......

Got ammo?
