Another question....since I'm a newb too. Is there anything I need to do before shooting for the first time? Like I feel like I read somewhere I need to strip the gun and get the "shipping" grease off or something. Maybe in craZy this sound familiar to anyone?

It's always a good practise with any new firearm, that prior to the initial firing you field strip it, clean it and lube it. All manufacturers are different as to how they ship new guns. Some like my Colt 6920 were what I consider over lubed. This is done to protect the gun should it end up sitting somewhere for an extended period prior to sale. Others may come bone dry, so it's a good habit to clean and lube any new firearm before hitting the range.

good point Mag318!


Inspect your gun. Check for the bore for abnormalities or obstructions. Then get'er wet!
