Hell fuck yea ! I went to the gun range with my buddy Arnold. He is a cop and spends a lot of time at the range. He let me shoot two of his guns and by the time I was done, I decided I want a gun of my own. We left the range and went to his favorite gun shop to browse around and fill out paperwork. I am buying a 45 Cal ACP. They are not easy to find either as most places are out of stock right now. Apparently the constant battle over gun rights has boosted sales astronomically.
The gun shop owners and gun manufacturers are happy about that, but it makes for a lot of red tape as well to buy a gun now a days. I have applied for my permit and such, but I cannot pick up my gun until after three days. That is how long it takes for the back ground check to come back. I also registered for my classes so I can get a concealed weapons permit as well. That is a bit expensive, but completely worth it. Arnold says that it is a must have. That way if I am ever pulled over the cops cannot give me too hard a time about it.
