Glad to be here. I've been a hunter all my life, but I've only recently understood the true meaning of the 2nd ammendment.

I think I was in the longest-waiting group on record (since they now have more people to shorten the time). I submitted in early June and received it almost four months later.

I've maxed out my purchasing for the next few years on two purchases since getting my license :)


  • Springfield XD9 4" - I love this gun. We were hitting tiny shale rocks with it on the hill behind the range targets a few weeks ago. I didn't count the yards, but it is a really accurate, comfortable gun. Excellent safety features. Combined with a Blackhawk holster, it's awesome.

    Rohrbaugh R9 - This is my new concealed pup (and the obvious reason I can't buy more guns for a while). I shot it for the first time last week. It is well-built and doesn't hurt as bad as I thought it would. I shot about 15 shots before my hand started to hurt. As has been posted elsewhere, it's a "carry often" and "shoot little" gun. It's really accurate for a 2.9" barrel. It has a very long trigger pull compared with the XD9. Very few safety features compared with the XD9. Overall, I like it because it is so small. Please don't flame me for it -- I know it is high priced compared with the excellent little Kahrs or other options. I did a lot of research and settled on it.

DITTO! Similarly, I have only recently realized that I can't expect my 2A rights to be upheld if I'm not exercising them. Good to have you here, GREAT to see other like-minded people coming to similar conclusions... it bids well for our nation's future!

I'm jealous of your Rohrbaugh. I've been wanting one for some time. :)
You know, I like it, but it didn't impress me as much as I thought it would. If I did it again, I just might buy a Kahr. I have mixed feelings. In any case, I had thought I would absolutely love the gun like I love my XD9. It didn't happen. It's nothing particular about the gun, just a "feel" thing. Technically, it's an extremely well-built gun.

At the end of the day, though, you can't argue with it's size. It disappears into a front pocket, which is exactly what I wanted. It shoots well for its size. So it accomplishes exactly what it's goal is -- just not a fun gun at the range like an XD.
