View Full Version : So I turned 21 today...

08-20-2012, 3:28 PM
As one of ~340 patients in the world diagnosed with Hereditary Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus, a 21st birthday might not mean much due to the strict Low sodium and NO alcohol diet that I must adhere to. So I won't be drinking at all, but that doesn't mean it's not eventful.

21 is also the legal age to purchase a handgun. Being one of my two major hobbies, I counted down the days until my 21st birthday.

I've waited way too long for this day, and it sure as hell is eventful.

aaaaaaaaaaand Glock 19


So stoked.

And if you've been following my AR build, the headache that it's been, I get to bring my lower and my Glock home at the same time. :excited:

Now I have to count down...10 days....

Happy Birthday and Congrats on what I suppose is your first handgun! Good choice BTW.

Happy birthday. Nice choice on the 19 too. That was my first pistol as well. I bought it shortly after turning 21.

Welcome to the 21 and over club.. Now your going to hate birthday because they just show you how out of your prime you are.. Well accept 25 you get to rent a car.. But every other perks are done and over from here on out.. And 55 you get AARP that's not too exciting tho.

I remember counting down the days not to drink but to buy my first handgun too. Counted since 18 sadly..

But start lapping those pistols up cause once you buy one they don't stop comin in... I had to learn that the hard way..

Thanks! but I have an E36 M3 now.

An E46 325i was my first car so 90% of my usernames or handles are either Southpaw (for being left handed) or SouthpawE46

This is my M3 at AutoClub speedway last week.

So what are you getting 30 days from now?

08-20-2012, 4:49 PM
Next purchase = .22 of some sort. Either a Ruger 10/22, Umarex .22lr MP5 rep, or Sig 522.

Or maybe a WASR AK.

Happy birthday. Good choice going with the G19

08-20-2012, 5:47 PM
Nice. I already have my 21st firearm related stuff all planned out. I'm going to buy a handgun, apply for my C&R/COE, get my AZ, UT, and FL CCWs. And then I think that's it. I got about 7 months to go.

08-20-2012, 5:56 PM
Even at the age of 21 that Glock will still at last you. Great call on the Glock and Congratulations

Happy Birthday, Southpaw! Nothing like celebrating your birthday and excise your rights and stick it to the lefty-tree hugging-liberal maggot-socialist-hippies at the same time. Have a blast, brother.

08-20-2012, 6:06 PM
Happy B-Day! Nice choice on the GLock 19. I bought the same model, Picked it up yesterday, playing with it as we speak.

Keep yourself occupied, those 10 days are going to be a drag.

.45 ftw!

Excellent choice! You can't go wrong with a G19.

Thanks all! I'm just counting down the days.

My AR gets out of jail at the same time, so I'm VERY stoked.
