I did it!
« on: May 20, 2004, 02:57:54 PM »
OK, I did it!  Mine is on order! ;D

R-9s in all stainless

Ordered from Long Island Shooting Supply $899

See my related post in the FS/WTB section.

Very nice and professional telephone transaction -- will keep you posted on the turn around time.

Fly, we want pics as soon as you get it....forget about the range report....WE WANT PICS...and then an honest eval...looking for how it handles HP ammo in both 124 and 147 and +p and +p+.....i am interested in one although i am not sure how much smaller it is than my Kahr PM9. I am afraid that these pistols will fall to the fate of the Detonics and others like that. It just seems awfully expensive..

I do not belive the factory recommends +P ammo, although I limited limited quantities (which is all you would want to shoot) would probably be o.k.

Mountain Dew...  I sucked down gallons of that Nectar of the Gods until about 7 months (and 45 pounds) ago.  Havent had one since -- too afraid of that green monkey on my back.  ;D

UPDATE:

Sadly, my business relationship with LISC deteriorated due to poor business practices on their part.  See the other thread for more information: http://www.rohrbaughforum.com/YaBB.cgi?board=Classifieds;action=display;num=1085073175

Fortunately, Eric Rohrbaugh's  personalized attention and excellent customer service saved the day!  My R9s will now be coming to a local Florida dealer -- and that dealer will now be a Rohrbaugh dealer (he and I are both excited now!).

I'll just have a challenge on my hands to get my R9s out of his after he receives it!  He'll want to keep it for himself for sure!

That's right, you're in Florida too.

My local dealer is:

Miles Schuler
Trade Winds Pawn & Gun
6243 Gulf Breeze Pkwy
Gulf Breeze, FL  32563
850-939-3303

I've done quite a bit of business with him -- a great fella...

And, he doesn't charge "extra" for using a credit card!
