Christmas came early!
« on: November 14, 2009, 10:03:14 PM »
I picked up my new R9s from my ffl about an hour ago, and I love it already! Hope to get out and shoot tomorrow or monday.    Life is good.   And thank you Tom speeding it along.        Gene

Gene.  Congratulations on getting the R9s.  I can tell you're proud.  Treat it well and shoot the good stuff.  The best deserves the best.

Gene:

Congratulations! (A little "fondling" of the R9 by its new owner prior to the initial range session is not only usual but also understood by others who own one.  ;)  )

Birdman,

Congratulations on your purchase of the finest pocket pistol out there. (I am morphing into Richard S with this statemet; not bad company though).

The best Christmas gifts we get are the ones we give to ourselves. Please tell me you agree that an R9 is better than a necktie!
