Default hello from Cypress (North OC)

Hello everyone. I recently purchased a P229 Enhanced Elite in 9mm and currently in the midst of the 10 day waiting period.

A little bit about myself. I'm a Manufacturing Engineer working at an aerospace fasteners company. I received my degree at Cal Poly Pomona in '10.

As an engineer, I have a fascination with all things mechanical. Cars have been a long time fixture in my family. Firearms are a relatively new thing to me but I became hooked on them after my friend brought me along to the local indoor range (Insight).

This will be my first handgun and my second firearm. I currently own a Remington 870 Express shotgun. Stock except for a Blackhawk stock.

Looking forward to learning more and sharing the experience with you guys (if you don't mind haha).

Welcome! Those two guns are great. I remember really liking the trigger on Sigs.

Remember to resist the urge to buy more guns, (unless it's an AR-15), and get some ammo and training!

Welcome, I live just North of you in Cerritos. I'm a SW engineer and work for a big Aerospace company.

Just a hunch, did you live by Zzyzx or something? And perhaps born in 85?

@Hosenasi: cool. Actually, this has been my internet username on multiple forums for quite a while now.

No, I never actually lived near Zzyzx Rd. I just picked it because I thought it'd be different and unique haha.

Yes, I was born in 1985.

Welcome to Calguns. If you are interested in: mechanical devices, firearms & technology, then may I suggest you look into picking up a Mosin Nagant rifle. They were designed in the late 1800's and are still in use worldwide.
