    Went to a local dealer and picked up a Sig P228 tonight, used by the Swiss police. It's in great shape and I got a great deal on it. It's going to compliment me Glock 23 and Ruger 10/22 nicely. Just thought I'd share

    Nice! I've dealt with David before at A&P, very cool guy... My last purchase was from Old Dominion guns right on Rt. 17, and they were great too for future reference. :)

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    Very nice, dude.

    I want a P228 also but they ask for $700 new. Screw that. I'll just wait til I can find a nice CPO one.

    not very hard at all.. lol.. lets see i see that you're in the marine corps, so.. all you need is your 2 forms of ID, drivers license and military ID, a copy of your military order... nevermind that was to purchase a handgun.. lol uhh well you can only buy 1 pistol every 30 days.. unless you got a concealed weapons permit... va is an open carry state,

    To get your concealed weapons permit.. go down to the 1st prestinct of your county, fill out paperwork, and since you're in the military some places assume you have proper handgun training, so they will waive the handgun safety course.. and 50 bucks... then 3 weeks later it will come in the mail.. if you got anymore questions PM me

    I Picked up a glock 23 last week its a nice gun... havent shot it yet.. lol.. got to break it in
