Let me be the first to say Congrats on one of the best 9mm's in the world!!! I have a plain jane 226R and I love it. I run CCI blazer (aluminum casings) through it all day without a hiccup. It is good quality, good price, and clean ammo. Enjoy your Blackwater.

I run Winchester White Box 100rd value packs from walmart out of my P228 for practice, I carry 124+P Speer Gold Dots. That Blackwater is sweet, I dig the front cocking serrations. Now go buy an M3 light and a couple of 20rd swat mags for it

get me a few hundred rounds of your dept issue 9mm
and you can break it in at the mini blastthat means the first mag down the barrel

If I can go, I'll bring you some 9mm. Best off if I buy it. Don't need an IA at this point in my career.

Tag for pics and a range report.

Congrats
Link Posted: 2/6/2006 5:46:54 PM EDT
i will get pics asap
range report upcoming too
I plan to run a few cheapie rounds to break in the barrel
then shoot it off the bench on some kind of rest to see how accurate it is at different ranges up to 25 yards
i'll probably pick up a few different types of ammo to see what it likes
but im stuck on gold dots

oh yeah
my initial thoughts
its pretty much everything i would do to hotrod a pistol
night sights (red front, green rear)
5-15 round mags
nice grips and comes with a spare
for some reason I end up buying limited run firearms and i have no idea why
I like the fact it has a decocking lever
its heavy(i only had a few glocks previously)
its a sweet gun that i will get used to


the only thing im not liking is the insane 10lb double action trigger pull
then a nice 4.5lb single(wish i could make it lighter)
but i will get used to it and not freak out having one in the tube
like i do with my glock with its 3.5lb trigger
