New to the forum and firearms in general. May have been a bit of pre-mid-life-crisis impulsiveness, but I stopped by the LGS (thanks for the acronym list a few threads down by the way) I had driven past for the last decade and purchased a P226 three weeks back. I've been completely captivated since. While I definetly enjoy the shooting (prior to my purchase I had maybe fired 50 rounds in my life, I'm over 500 now) but it's the mechanics of it that really grabbed me. I've already ordered my second (P250 .45 Compact) that I'll be picking up tomorrow. The fact that I'm still up at 1:30 reading every damn thing I can find on the P250 and pondering my next purchase makes me think this may be a very expensive new interest. I'm glad I have a very patient wife.
