Another newbie
« on: September 12, 2005, 07:05:16 PM »
Hello everyone, I have been watching the forum for some time now and have decided that I have been watching long enough and need to finally join.  I am not yet a Rohrbaugh owner, but I do hope that will come relatively soon.  I have read up on it so much that it makes me excited to think about getting one, even though I have never seen one in person.  The pictures on the post are awesome and I can tell that this is a great crowd.  I guess that is a long enough hello, and I look forward to actually being a part of the forum I have been watching for so long.

Glad you are here, Woo_Woo.  Welcome to the forum.

I bought my R9S without ever seeing one.

It's always in my front  pocket in a Hedley holster, and you hardly know it's there.

Welcome!  I second Bill's comments as to both pistol and holster.

Welcome Woo_Woo!  I lurked here for about a year before joining. Ordered my R9 through the Irish Guard (Tom) on the forum (great guy and a gun dealer) a few months ago ,and Maria from Rohrbaugh told him it should be shipped in about a week.

I held my first R9 at the Pittsburgh NRA convention a few years ago.  My first though was great gun - my second thought was too much money.   But I couldn't get it out of my mind - so here I am.

Wow, I thought I had been lurking for a while.  I know it hasn't been a year yet, though!   8)

Ok, just a couple more things about myself, I am originally from FL but I have been living in CO for the past 3 years.  I noticed that DDGator and one other person, forgot who it was, were from around my hometown of St. Petersburg.  The first time I noticed was when I saw DDGator's pictures of his R9 on top of the St. Petersburg Times.  That made me feel right at home and made me realize what a small world it can be sometimes.  Thanks for making me feel welcome!

Welcome from me too fella :).

If you've been lurking so long then I reckon are pretty much up to speed on news and issues but any questions - fire away when needed.
