I guess we're pretty much in the same boat. I bought a Kimber Ultra CDP yesterday, and can't pick it up until October 1st. That just makes me sooo happy. [pissed] SeMPer Fi

Just one of the joys of being single I guess. I can buy what I want and I don't need anyone's approval. I'll just have to enjoy it while I can. SeMPer Fi

What is all this ten day stuff? I bought my kimber and walked out of the store in about 20 minutes. Might have been less, but I visited with the owner for a few minutes. Ten days? I don't think so, not where I live. That really sucks. My condolences.

Woohooo!!! a good acquisition indeed [:D] Congrats. Not to worry. Here in TX we have a wait also. It depends on a system they call NICS. When I got my LEGP from my FFL, I had to wait 5mins cause he dialed the number so freaking slow. I told him next time put it on speed dial so I wouldn't have to wait so long. I threatened to get my CHL so he would not have to go through the NICS next time. That got him shaking in his boots.

Welcome to the world of 1911. Get a reloading press and some hardcast lead bullets. Get some WILSON 8round mags. Shoot it every week, and you'll never wear it out. Springfield Armory makes a nice 1911. Enjoy !
