I’m only here for the free Ammo.
« on: April 04, 2021, 06:12:21 pm »
Ok; just kidding.

Newbie in Goodyear, AZ. Been in AZ over 20 years but grew up in Big Sky country, Montana, on a real live cattle ranch. I was around guns as a kid but never a pistol. Shooting rock chucks with a 22; deer with a 30 odd or 30/30. Now grown, with a family, i finally ordered my first pistol, after handling many at local gun stores and doing a fair bit of research. Got the Walther PDP 4.5 inch for me and the Sig 365xl for the wife (who is also new to guns in general but enthusiastically wants to join in and has done so at shooters world). Already have a shot gun and a few longs inherited from my Dad, and a air gun for my kiddo’s.

I actually ordered the PDP sight unseen in person. Shot the PPQ and Sig Scorpion and 365 at shooters world and really liked both, but read up on PDP and seems like it is a great upgrade from PPQ, so ordered it. Love the grip and the trigger on both guns I ordered. (This is for home defense only right now)

Both guns are set to arrive this month if all goes well, but meanwhile, I keep reading up on a million topics, like “why paddle holsters are a bad idea” that someone on the Walther pdp forum stated today. Interesting. Also ordered CHPWS plate and Holosun 509. The 365 is coming with an optic. It’ll be nice to see two different optics - never had anything other than an old old scope for an optic, and rarely that.

So hello all. Point out the free ammo when you have time. And would someone please tell me if they’ve been to Virgil Ellis shooting range as it looks interesting to me and I might go. I’ve been to Joe Foss and Ben Avery before and they are fine. Just branching out a bit.

Thanks for any hello’s.

    Welcome to AZGO! 8)

    Personally I'm not a fan of Walthers though I do still own an older PPK.

    Free ammo? Sign me up!!  :thumbup

    Am i willing to drive somewhere to shoot? Yes.
    No offense to anyone, but shooters world - much too dark, crowded, and expensive. It was nice for trying a variety of pistols though, especially on Friday’s with my wife along for lady’s day!

    And Marxism, have you tried the PPQ or PDP? Just wondering.

    Welcome.

    Good choices in guns.

    If you wish to buy guns, sight unseen obviously, but at good prices, check out grabagun.com. I've done numerous orders with them, always good to go. Both ammo and guns.

    Paddle holsters are fine. It all depends on getting the right ones.

    Best thing I ever did to never be gun-less again, pick up a pocket pistol you like and can live with.

    I've gone the gambit on pocket guns. Revolvers (snubbies) are definitely a favorite for a pocket gun. Right now got a Glock 43 (9mm) and a pocket kydex holster from aholster.com.

    The crazier the world gets around us, I think most here would agree, it'd be far more beneficial to have a gun on you that you're willing to carry instead of leaving it at home.

    Carry daily. Apply sparingly.

    Thanks all. Didn’t mean to build a clickbait post.

    Got the 365 and PDP today. Wish I could find some ammo, free or not. Neither Cabela’s nor Sportsman’s had any regular stuff. Sportsman’s had some hollow points which I did get, but won’t use those obviously for range shooting.

    Appreciate the welcomes. Noticed that Joe foss isn’t open until May 1st. Dang.

    Ordered Mantisx 10 since ammo is so pricey/rare right now.

    All for now. Stay safe all.

    No worries amigo!  All in good fun.  I'm more making fun of how easily I fall for it every time.

    Free ammo?  Shit I been here seven years and I ain't got no free ammo!  I didn't even know we did that!  DOH! He's just being funny.

    It's pricey right now but Shooter's World has ammo last I was in. Didn't buy myself, was only window shopping.
