I Got the Call!

Post by CurlyQHoward » 23 Mar 2013, 06:33

The 5.7 which I ordered for my wife in December is in. It is my wife's first pistol, and to say she's excited is putting it mildly. Originally we passed up a chance at one of three in late December as we could not find ammunition; however, a day later I was able to buy five boxes of ammo, but then all three pistols sold before I could get to the store (seventy-five miles away at a different store) to buy one. So, the next day I ordered a 5.7 from Cabelas, and it arrived this morning.

Awesome!!! Do you know if it is one of the new design models (MK2)? If it is you need to post pictures!!! OH and remember before you fire it, you need to clean the factory goo off it and then run at least 200 rounds through it....
There can only be two.

It's not the MK2, and it's 120% of what I could have bought it for in December, so I'm not going to take it. Perhaps somebody else won't mind the increase, but I'll wait for an MK2 if I'm going to have to pay a premium.

Bummer. I hate such disappointments.
