Default Bought my first gun Friday!

After renting/borrowing a Beretta 92FS, Glock 19, S&W 1911, FN 57, CZ 75B, and FNX-9, I've bought the FNX-9. I had a bit of trouble with it due to limp-wristing at first, but quickly resolved that and love the way it shoots. I really liked the gun being fully ambi since I'm left handed and found I liked hammer fired better than striker (S&W M&P's are ambi as well). Unfortunately all I could take home was the cleaning kit. I'm pretty excited about picking it up when I go for my next lesson later this week.

Congratulations. The FNX serious is a hell of a firearm. You will enjoy!

Sorry to say, but you are now addicted..... Although a firearms are a fun and "healthy" addiction, it is still recognized in this community as an addiction.

Congrats! Once you get it, break it in by running about 250-500 rounds through it.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
