    and by owner i mean, I ordered it at my usual shooting range, it should arrive in a week, and then I have to wait 10 days and THEN I get to have it. (Thank you California)

    It will be my first 9mm, and my first Hi point. I also have a winchester 12 ga. 1300 defender, beretta u22 neos, 38 spl. revolver (police issue from 1951) and a buffalo bill commemorative 30-30 lever action. Also just bought my wife a ruger 10/22.

    Looks like the members here have a lot to offer, and I am looking forward to learn.

    Man, I really feel for you. It took me all of 30 minutes to buy any of my guns here in Kansas. I have worked in Frisco and surfed in several places in Cali, but like my Kansas just fine :D
     
  5. Good luck San Diego

    When you get the c9 give it a nice cleaning then take it to your range and shoot the hell out of it. You'll have fun until the boolits run out. Then save up and buy more boolits for the next time/. Enjoy from sunny Southern Arizona.
    By the way It only take about 10 min. to purchase a C9 here. Longer to pick out accessories. Enjoy.
    :D

    I spent almost my entire childhood in California back when things were relatively sane. I moved to Missouri in August 1991.

    Since I didn't leave anything behind but memories, I have no reason to return to collect anything.

    P.S. My sister lives in Oceanside, my brother in Sacramento, and my youngest daughter is stationed in San Diego with the US Navy.

    Haha, this thread actually was resurrected from 2012, when I bought my c9. Gotta look at those post dates! :)

    That's where my oldest son went. He spent much of his 4 years at Pendleton.
