    New member, new owner (almost)

    Hey everyone,
    I'm about to be a first time pistol owner as soon as my check goes through. I live in Washington state and since our pistol checks have to go through local PD, and my local PD is apparently flooded with background checks, I've been waiting over 2 weeks to pick up my new guns. Got a G3 for myself and my wife picked out a G2C am I'm super excited to shoot both of them. The anticipation is literally driving me CRAZY!!

    Since I'm new to the pistol world and have only ever had a shotgun that was sold years ago, I joined this forum in hope of learning all I could from people who dont tell me that I screwed up by getting a Taurus and not just buying a Glock.

    Since I've been waiting so long I couldnt help myself and just started buying crap online thinking that by the time it all got here I would have the guns and everything would be awesome. I've had all my stuff delivered and now I'm second guessing everything I bought cause I havnt been able to play with it yet. If I post a list here of what I got and what I spent, can you guys/gals tell me if I did ok, am just crazy, or got completely ripped off? I'm not even sure how much 9mm ammo used to cost before it became this hard to find.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to learning from you all! Thanks for having me

    Welcome from NW Arkansas. Both are great pistols. I think most of us get the jitters waiting for a new pistol. I often will purchase extra magazines, grips etc.. for a new pistol while waiting for the actual gun to ship.

    Yeah...the only thing I didnt get was more magazines. Figured 2 for each gun was a good start. unfortunately it didnt ship anywhere. I purchased in store, in person and have been waiting since the 11th for the background check to go through. They're just sitting in a box 15 minutes from my house waiting for clearance.
