Either Monday or Tuesday, I should be heading down to Virginia Arms in Manasses to pick up a Beretta Cx4 Storm in .45. My Streamlight TLR-1 and BSA 30mm multi-reticle red dot arrived this evening, and will be getting attached as soon as I get the carbine home and cleaned. If any of y'all see me down there, be sure to wave. I'd love to meetcha.

ETA: In my glee, I miscounted. Not this Monday or Tuesday, but the 17th or 18th.

Damn... almost 12 hours and no one shows any Virginia hospitality?

Be safe with your new experience, and be confident that Rob and the guys at Bernie's place will treat you well.

You left out be confident that it will not be your last and that you will gladly spend countless bazillions of dollars in the future.


Congrats and welcome, glad to have you on board!

I know about the whole "want more" thing. Already lining up my first AR purchase.

They should put warnings on these things. They put warnings on all sorts of other addictive substances.

really, the most important thing i can think of to tell you is, under no circumstances sell one to get another. you'll always regret it in the end , just sit it out and save for it.

BTW congrats!

nah i have sold 2 and not regretted it at all. but that was mainly because i bought 2 others with that money and i enjoy them both a lot more.

that is about the best store you could have gone to. i shack up a couple minutes up the road from there and those guys are great.

Congrats! Best way to take care of it (aside from regular cleaning and lubing) is get it out and SHOOT IT!

Guess I'm not just about to get one. Got that Black Rifle itch; custom lowers from Tom Sawyer have a lead time of 8 to 10 weeks. So, uh, about to get my first firearm in another 8 to 10 weeks.

I used to think that and still do to some degree but after they sit in the safe for years I have come to believe that it is better to set them free if you really love them.

You will be happy with TSM. He does very good work. If i do another AR i will get a lower from him again.

As a side note, if any of you are wanting a custom lower yourself and have an idea of what you want done design/engraving-wise, drop me a line. For my day job I work in IT, but otherwise I'm an illustrator, and may be able to help you out in terms of getting your design ideas on paper.

well, that is true in some cases, unfortunately i sold my first black rifle for the wrong reasons and i'll regret it to my dying day. though this weekend i traded a Moss. 500 cruiser for a P-64 in pristine condition, so i'm happy.

Online shopping spree today. Bought about 600 rounds of ammo, 2 50-round mags, and a buttstock. Need to finish the design for my lower so I can have Tom Sawyer MFG engrave it, and purchase an upper.
