hi everyone. im new to this forum, and handguns for that matter. i just recently purchased a brand new para nite hawg .45, i picked it up at bill's gun shop here in mn. i had been looking around for a good 1911 compact to start my collection and this particular model caught my eye. i ended up getting a pretty good deal on it, after tax i payed about $780 for it. i have yet to receive my firearms permit in the mail, but i look forward to shooting it, and posting on this forum. i do also belong to s10forum.com my name over there is slideAdime, Thanks.

thanks, still haven't received anything from the county. they said 7-10 days, and there was the weekend. any day now, im getting anxious! I'm an avid deer hunter, and gun lover. like i said this will be my first pistol. i do own a model 1300 shotgun (new), a 410 single shot, and a 30-30 lever action, the latter two were passed on to me by my grandpa joe.

You have to have permit just to BUY a gun? Ugh! Sounds like New York. Glad I live in Colorado, all I have to do is fill out the Form 4473 (or whatever it's called) and BS with the dealer for about 15 minutes while it clears.
