Welcome, Some shops that have a range let you shoot your own gun while you wait. Just have to pay for ammo :29: other than that just try not to think about it! if you keep on thinking about it 10 days seems like a month

10 day wait on 1st gun?

Day 1: Search net for best price on ammo. Find deal, purchase.
Day 2: Search net for best prices on range gear. Find eyes, ears, mags, bag.
Days 3-7: Wait patiently.
Day 8: Receive shipment of ammo from BBT. Try to rest the smile muscles.
Day 9: Receive shipment of eyes/ears, mags, bag from BBT. Try to rest the smile muscles.
Day 10: Pick up new gun. Smile all you want.
Day 10+: Shoot.

Look for a range that will let you rent a pistol. The Range in Fresno rents for $15 all day. You bring your ammo and gun you shoot all day. Have no gun no fear you rent a gun $10.00 + cost of ammo+ Range fee. Pick out a 45 shoot it till the ammo runs dry. Turn it in pick out a new gun, Buy ammo for it and shoot the $10.00 you started with covers any gun you by ammo for.

Welcome to the forum -- just a suggestion... Crimson Trace (http://www.crimsontrace.com/PressKit/ActionPhotos/index.html) grips are excellent for home defense. You don't really have to aim, just lay that dot on your target and shoot.
