Long story short, I went by my local dealer this morning and he had a Springer GI in stock. Nothing special, but I've been wanting one and the price was right and he was willing to take a Glock I've been looking to unload in trade. Didn't have the Glock with me at the time...wasn't expecting to get a gun today. Came back late in the day, about an hour before closing time...my fault there. Anyway, I always get delayed on my background checks...don't know why...ever since the NICS system went into place...I get delayed. Usually get approved in 30 minutes to an hour. Things ran too long this afternoon and my dealer was nice enough to wait a little past closing but I was still delayed at closing, so now I have to wait until Monday to go pick it up. Not a huge deal, but I was hoping to take it out shooting on Sunday. Should've got there an hour earlier. The problem I'm going to wager was there's a huge gun show in the area today and I'm sure the folks doing background checks got backlogged. At any rate, it's all paid for and everything...and adds to my growing 1911 collection. I'll get some pics up Monday when I pick it up. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
