say hello to the newest memebers of my family.
it all started off yesterday.
I had my final day of court where I signed off on the charges figuring I couldn't do better. I payed off the fines and restitution and was glad.
Then I called my army recruiter and said...lets do this. So I fill out all my paper work over a couple hours and have every thing done that needs to be done before I go in for processing.
One thing that I am still working on is getting my references and people who will say nice things about me when the army decides to ask. I stop by the Okoboji police department and announce to a few officers that I had riden with for 6 months of school how things turned out and they were all very happy...I was the good guy even though I got stuck with charges.
So Im talking to the officer who really got me into guns. and his brother is right there. the officer is the area swat team coordinator and Ive been to the range with him ALOT. His brother who is also a cop hears me mention that I needed to run to another town to see what the gun shop there would offer on my bushmaster Vmatch ar15. he perked up and started asking what I was looking for. I said handguns and optics is about it...next to cash.
I told him I wanted an XD40 from springfield because I had gotten quiet a bit of range time in with it and I liked it more than other handguns I had used ...was much nicer than most of the glocks used and I actually liked the feel better then the 1911 and kimber I had shot.
he said he had one with about 200 shots through it which I had seen at the shooting range before. I asked if he wanted to look over the rifle.
short story long...He liked the rifle alot. offered me a SW P99 .40 subcompact and his XD40 straight up.
more than I was expecting. we agreed and all was good.
he got home and called me back with a very pissed off tone..(I was afraid he had broken my rifle.) He found out his wife sold the XD40 thinking it was one of hers. and he was very appologetic wondering if it would be ok for him to order a new one and have it in a few days..I didn't complain
so I got a brand spanking new springfield XD40 in .40 with 2 high cap(12round) mags and a Smith and Wesson P99 .40 subcompact...made me very very happy.
Now I just need to get my CCW and im set.
there will be pics up when it comes in.
