Argh! Added a Israeli Baby Eagle .45 to the collection. Or at least started the process.

But, it looks like I'm going to be waiting more than 10 days though as the transfer wouldn't go through! The dealer tried doing the transfer, etc., on line and the server kept erroring out and not even returning an error message, just a big blank box.

So, she said she'll try again before leaving today, and if it still didn't respond, she'd come in especially tomorrow to try it again.

So, best case, it will be 10 days from this afternoon. Worst case, 12 days assuming it doesn't work tomorrow and she has to call in on Monday. This is, assuming the 10 day wait starts after the succesful registration (which seems like that's how it would go.)

Boy, I miss living in cash and carry states! I feel so infringed in California.

5 days until I can pick up my new shotgun, but 6 days until I can buy another pistol (picked up my Springfield 1911 the day after Christmas) thanks to Nanny Sacramento. Thinking about trading in my POS Beretta 92FS for a Walther PPK (huge James Bond fan).

I talked to the seller, and I will be meeting for the transfer tomorrow. I guess I have 11 days. I've been wanting a .22 plinker for a while, and couldn't pass up bidding on this one.

Just started the DROS on a XD45 service that I bought from a fellow Calgunner. I can't wait! It will make a nice addition to my tactical.

My wife just ordered a CW9 out of Oklahoma, and hasn't even started the formal 10 day (should be to our FFL mid-week). I think she and I both are anxious. We don't want Obama to issue an executive order on the afternoon of January 20th banning all guns. I hope we're just paranoid.

I used to have a PPK/S. Loved the Carl Walther quality, design, and its overall performance. But I have big hands, and it never "fit" my hand well. Be sure to handle one extensively before deciding to buy, so you don't experience my disappointment.

You won't be disappointed, David. I shot my friend's Ruger that was almost identical to that one a few months ago, and it was a sweet little shooter.

13 months and counting on my Bohica upper, and I now have no idea when it will be delivered . . .

Now I see why this thread is so necessary. I've only bought rifles before and the wait isn't too painful. This is my first handgun purchase and these last five days have been torture! Five more to go!

Here's the New (to me) PM9:


So I finally got the NEW CDL in the mail.
Rolled into my local ffl... Turns out they ran it after Xmas anyway.
Just wanted a photocopy of my valid license for their files.

So it was waaay over ten days, but I got to take it home as the waiting period went by without my knowing it.

Ten days is bad but what about when you order from out of state and get the UPS tracking info? I have been waiting a week already and my lowers don't arrive until the 13, then 10 more days.... All the while my buddies in ID walk into the local gun store purchase a pistol, rifle, and ammo and are shooting it 20 minutes later!

I ordered a few extra things for my soon to be, new-to-me, G26 last week to help relieve the wait a little and have been waiting eagerly for a tracking #. Turns out my order hasn't even been processed yet. WTF?

9 more days...

Why must you torture me so, Sacramento? I loath stupid laws. If I was going to go commit a crime of passion, a Ruger Mk1 would not be my weapon of choice. I already have the guns for that, so the anti's argument for a waiting period is moot.

At least I found some nice wood target grips with a thumbrest to go on it when I do get it. Now I just need to find someone who has adjustable sights in stock. (Midway is out)

I am now down to 5 days. The idiocy of this is that I already have 4 handguns and I sure wouldn't use a C&R revolver if I was going to do something stupid. By the way it is a 1938dated 1895Nagant and I will now have to find some ammo for it. I do know it will shoot .23 S&W long so I may try some of that.

You can also get a cylinder for 32 ACP I think. I believe my Rusky friend had one for his.

Friday for me, I pick up the Colt after 11:30AM. I've been extremely busy with work and house chores, so I haven't even thought about it too much.

I am sorry to say, well not really sorry to say so much as happy to say, that as of tomorrow morning I will no longer be a member of the handgun wait support group as my 10 days of tortuous waiting are over. I am quite certain I will be back soon, but until then...
