So now I have officially 3 firearms in my collection. Lever-action rifle - .22 Long Rifle AR15 - 5.56 NATO Springfield XD40 Bitone - .40 S&W So my brother just recently bought about an hour ago or so a handgun (our first) for about $300 off armslist. So I'm really liking it. I racked the slide a bit and held the grip of it in my hands and I gotta say its got a bit of weight to it and it feels pretty good holding it. I did some googling on this firearm to see if you can dryfire it. And people have said that you can from time to time or before dissembling the gun prior to cleaning/lubing. But they suggest to use snap caps if you want to practice with it. So I'm fixin' to buy some on eBay a little bit later (I have not dryfired it and told my brother as well to the same, just until we buy snap caps and then we can dry fire all you want) Gun came with no ammo so thats top priority and besides that I'm pretty excited to go out and shoot it with him. However my brother did see that by locking the slide to the rear and looking through the ejection port that it is a bit dirty (the previous owner only put about 50 rounds through it, but it looks to be a bit dirtier than 50 rounds lol) so now I have to youtube how to take it apart, clean/lube it. Plan on shooting my AR a bit tomorrow so I may clean that as well since I'm cleaning the handgun anyways. Put about 60 rounds or so a few days ago on my AR and had to relube my BCG and cam pin since it was a bit dry when cycling it. But after I shoot it some more, now that my BCG is already lubed I'll just be cleaning my bore, chamber and action. Speaking of which, the slide on this handgun is a bit hard to pull back but racking the slide a few times its starting to feel easy to do it. I'm just really really excited to shoot it. But I'll clean/lube it tomorrow after watching some vids and hopefully its easy to rack the slide once I figure out what/where I need to clean/lube. From that point, time to shoot! By the way my brother and I and some friends have been doing some intense hiking, backpacking and overnight camping lately (and plan on doing more) in remote areas where bears, mountain lions and the such are known to roam around. Can't really take the AR on public trails, so after we've talked about it for a while on needing to take some kind of handgun with us just in case, we finally got one! We also both plan on getting CCL a little later since we do plan on buying at least 1 more handgun later down the line.
