Happy new gun day to me

After searching for about a month i got lucky and found a Springfied XDS in stock. Bought the last one from Gander Mountain. its going to be my new concealed carry gun.

I had to wait in a line of about 10 people before my turn and I got the last all black on they had. There is no wait period in Colorado, but background checks are backed up 9 days! So looks like i'm waiting a week. Crazy.

Mandy is thinking of getting one too, nice weapon.

I saw that announced this week, but i've made a decision to focus on 45 ACP instead of 9mm. I'm going to reload all my .45

I'm sure you have it, but here is the link for it. http://us.glock.com/bluelabel

I will be using it next month to pick up a G27. $399 is a much better price than $529/$549. Lone Wolf sells a 9mm barrel for $100, and I have mags from my G19, so it's like having two guns for around $500.

Any idea what the wait time is on that if you order it directly from them?

Stupid long, 6-8 weeks, depending on model. I'm driving to a shop in Kissimmee that has not met its limit this year. My G27 is waiting for me.

Glock armorer has the same pricing as LEO. I will be able to do warranty work for Glock, and it gives me a much better understanding of the weapon.

I never pegged you as delusional, you honestly think they won't.

He was looking for an XD but couldn't find one.

Yeah the demand is crazy right now. especially for people wanting guns like this that can only hold 7 rounds and that if you buy an exteneded mag.
