I used to do target shooting / hunting when I was a boy, so I'm not new to rifles and shotguns. (Before I was allowed to shoot my first rifle, my Dad had me take a gun safety course.) Don't know if it's a second childhood thing, but I have decided to get my first pistol. I looked around a bit... then some more... then some more, until I found a place with an inventory. A week later it was shipped to my FFL. So, in 60 days or more (the estimated time for a Maryland background check), I will be receiving my new Smith and Wesson, M&P9. I know Jamie has some firearms, but was interested to see what other folks at the forum might have.
