  1. I did not clean or oil anything. Just took it from the case, loaded it up and fired away. Thankfully no issues. I like it but going forward I'll probably only buy a gun that I've held in my hand instead of what I did this time. Truth be told the grip feels a bit too thin for my size hand. Not terrible but i feel that a larger grip would be better for me. I guess its that whole single stack magazine thing. I did read about this before purchasing but figured it would work well for my wife's smaller hands. She hasn't shot it yet. Otherwise I had the pleasure of firing a 44 magnum revolver today. Quite the experience for me. I'm certainly not against taking a good class. Or a bunch really. Unfortunately due to covid they say they have no lessons at this time.
  2. Well. I'm finally going to a range to fire this 9mm I bought. Since I've received it I've been getting familiar with it by using those fake rounds (snap caps?) I feel that for someone with my level of knowledge (lack of) of firearms those things have been great to have. I feel so much better after using them and learning the functions of the gun. So today will be the big day that I fire my first REAL rounds out of my first gun. I will be going to the range with my mom's husband who has a knowledge of firearms use and safety as he used to shoot often....back in the day. Hopefully I'll have a good/safe time and learn some more. Ken
  3. I bought some Hornady Critical Defense from them maybe 2 weeks ago. I sent them a pic of my FID and DL. They said I wont have to provide it in the future unless I move or my DL expires snd I get a new one. Smooth process. The lady I spoke to was very nice. What is training ammo btw? Ken
  4. I've been looking. Seems like so much isunavailable. Maybe i gotta start just walking into shops that don't require appointments and hope i stumble onto something. As opposed to my internet searching.
  5. 1k rounds 115gr 9mm fmj 100 rounds Hornady Critical Defense 115gr 9mm 1k rounds 36gr high velocity 22lr safety tips "hp" Ken
  6. Thats a really good point. Never thought of it that way. Yeah, i guess that about sums it up. I agree. Well thats good to know. I did read some negative things about SA after I paid for the pistol and was thinking "oh God, whats the chances I just decided to buy from a manufacturer that was involved in some 2A controversy not long ago" I just pictured the FFL receiving it and saying "who had this POS Springfield Armory gun sent to my place". I'll have to do a bit of research into this still. I wouldnt even know what to look for in a used gun. Id be very likely to buy some unsafe or worn gun or it would have missing pieces and I'd just take it home none the wiser. I'm just too ignorant at this time. Thank you for the information and your time Ken
  7. Hello So I may be a dope for this but I imagine I wont regret it (hopefully). I purchased 2 guns that I have never fired, picked up or even touched. I did this out of feeling of desperation. I wanted something to put in my empty gun cabinet and just kinda went with it. I feel like I didnt have time to treat these purchases they way i usually do. I would have preferred to go shoot different guns to find out what i like and narrow down based on that and cost and availability etc. But...ranges are busy, FFLs seem busy, ammo seems so unavailable and so on. So as I said I was having a feeling of desperation. I waiting to go pick one up at FFL this coming week and the other is on the way to FFL.(delayed) So I went with a Springfield Armory XD-E 9mm and a HENRY H004SE2 GOLDEN BOY 22LR SILVER EAGLE 2. I'd really like to get a shotgun next. Any recommendations? I don't plan on hunting. I guess I'd like to use to it to skeet shoot for fun but also perhaps home defense? Anyway I'm hoping for the best and no regrets. Ken
  8. I dont trust the whole thing. My wife has a ballot in her maiden name and her moms address as well as one with her current name and address. 2 different counties.
  9. A subscriber to Compound Media as well?
  10. Hello. Sorry, I wasn't very clear. I do have a FID for about 15 years. I'm just waiting on the pistol purchase permits. This time I plan on using them. I got 3 of them when I moved to town (went to have the address changed on the FID and applied for them then) and I let them expire after getting an extension. As for this time around, on 8/4 I received an email stating my background check was complete and to wait for further emails. So.... that's where I'm at. Constantly checking spam folder and wondering what phone number I put for my employer. Edit: couldn't spell "email" correctly
  11. That's the plan. I got a family member that is seemingly more than happy to provide me with some knowledge. I also am wanting to take some classes too. Do the classes ever have any family/group rates for husband, wife and/or child?
  12. I've only been here 12 years. Union County before that. New shooter. So new that I'm waiting on my pistol permits and unfortunately have no idea what firearms/shooting I like. Hopefully I'll get this paperwork soon and figure it out.
  13. Hello from 08807. Great site. Glad to be here.
