My wife is an amazing woman. When we met, almost 15 years ago, I knew it and we married after 3 weeks! With her, I'm the luckiest guy ever! Now I'm the luckiest guy ever with an incredible pistol!!! We were discussing the up and coming holidays and she told me that she had been saving all year so I could have a new pistol. She also remembered a time when she bought me an M4 upper for Christmas only to have it arrive the following April! She wanted me to go ahead and get it now so that it would not be backordered. I'm not sure how she knew, but I got the last one off the shelf and the wait is now something like 16-18 weeks!! I thought I was going to have to wait until Monday, but my company let us out at 3pm today. I may have set a minor record driving from Austin to the guys at Dawson Precision in Florence. On a side note, if you ever get a chance to do business with these guys, you will not be disappointed. Best company I have dealt with in a long time. The folks there got me taken care of and even installed a front sight for me and gave me a little tour while I waited. Very personable folks. Please excuse my photography skills... I got an STI Ranger II in 9mm. This pistol feels like it was machined out of a single block of steel. Fit and finish are excellent and it locks up like the proverbial bank vault. Trigger is also excellent, 'specially for right out of the box. At some point, I will probably have a tougher finish put on it as that was one of the things I did like about my Glocks. This is the nicest pistol I have ever handled, bar none! I offered to let my wife wrap it up and I would wait patiently (well, as patiently as could be expected) for Christmas... she would not hear about it!!! On top of the amazing gift, she was sweet to put up with me this week. I've been bouncing around like a kid after 10 cups of coffee!!! My co-workers were probably about ready to put me in a bag and throw me off a bridge! I will post a range report on Monday after I wring it out a bit. I'm expecting great things from this pistol! My Wife Rocks!!!
