Congrats on your purchase, you'll love it once you fire a couple of cyls. Needless to say be sure to wear ear protection, esp with the Mag. cyl/loads
I received my Dad's when he passed away about 10yr.ago. It is also a blued,61/2" model. For me the factory grips were too small-put a set of Packmyer on and been happy with it.
You must live in a gun-free area=NYC,Detroit,Boston,LA,DC,Chicago, or what? For that kind of waiting period??
