    Old saying if you sit in a barbershop long enough you'll get a hair cut.

    Well window shopping at the gun shop today me and I couldn't say no...

    BTW: This gun was bought at 8pm and I was the 1190th person to buy a pistol in California... Store manager said that it runs about 1100-1300 a day. So much for California having no gun lovers.

    This is what I'll pick up in 10 days.

    Springfield Loaded Black Stainless...

    Sharp looking gun. Too bad you have to wait 10 days for it though.

    A small caution here. The finish on the trigger guard is not black stainless. It's some sort of black enamel and it chips very easily.
