10 Day Agony

Those car museum pictures?  I’m sure I’ll have them up soon…

In the mean time, I finally had the chance to drive out to JK Supply Co. to fill out the necessary paperwork to start my CA 10 day wait for the pistol I won at Gun Blogger Rendezvous.

What did I win?  It’s a Para PXT LDA Limted Single Stack Pistol, donated by Kirby Smith of Para USA to support Project Valor-IT.

While I was having fun spitting lead and attempting to stay warm on range day, I didn’t have the chance to play around with this pistol.  I suppose I wanted to stay away while I wasn’t attached – the desire seems less intense if I don’t have any experience wanting one.  Reportedly, everyone else didn’t want to let it go.  Had I not won and shot this pistol, I would feel inclined to agree.  This isn’t the case, however.  Lucky me!

When I arrived at Jk Supply Co., Ryan was pulling out the Para.  I didn’t know what to expect;  I have yet to even see it in person.  Andy from Hi-Cap Gun Works shipped the gun disassembled, so I was a bit distracted assembling it back together and didn’t get to the necessary paperwork until I realized that playtime can wait.  Whoops.

For the little time I had with this Para, I’m very excited.  The pistol felt nice in my hands and I’m really curious about the action.  I had a chance to shoot Joe’s Gun Blog .45 pistol from Para with a similar action – it was interesting.  I anticipate an in-depth examination when I get my hands on it.  You can count on that.

    Thanks Sam! Though I don’t keep up with my blog as much as I should, I really do appreciate the comments.

    And yes, DC. I had no idea what I was expecting before I saw it. I plan on seeing how much I can run it without cleaning it. The trigger assembly looks something to be less desired, but I guess we’ll see how it’ll work out.
