I witnessed our freedoms in person yesterday. I went to Cabelas with my credit card offer in hand (12 mos interest free and $100 off on a purchase over $500). I gave the form to a lady for approval and went to see if the had any XD'm's in stock. The counter was deep with gun buying customers. When a salesman passed by I shouted "do you have any XDM 9's in stock"? He looked it up in the computer and said "YEP"! I said "I'll take it!" I then filled out the yellow form, a cute gal checked it over, handed me a beeper and said it would go off when they got my instant background check approved.

I walked back to the credit card dude, grabbed my fresh plastic and as I walked back towards the gun counter to "shop" they called my name. I gave him my still warm card and walked out with my new XDM!! This all took about 45 minutes..


I feel for the poor folks in Cali and NYC who live in scewed up states.

LOL! I hear ya! Each time I bought one from a store or guns how, I spent more time shopping for the pistol than actually buying it.

Yea it took me more time to wait to be helped than it did for me to actually purchase my XDM 40. I think it was 15 or 20 min after I was helped that I was walking out the door with the plactic case in hand.

IL.

72 hours. I guess so I don't kill anyone in a moment of anger. I can think of 100 ways to kill someone in 5 minutes when I'm in a moment of anger, so I'm not sure that this particular law works.

skip, i got mine in the mail but they had the same deal going in store as you walk in.
Thanks Buzz, now I just some really good arguments to convince the wife. I already tried the "Honey, it's just like when you get the 30% off at Kohl's and go nuts shopping" She didn't really think it was the same.

So whatever has worked for you guys, let me know.

I also live in The Peoples Republik of Illinois.

One of the dumbest things about the law, is that if I have a trade in like a 44 magnum, and want to buy a .22 cal pistol, I still have to wait 3 days to pick up my new .22. This is really stoooopid. :confused:

Walked in. Saw the gun I wanted, played with it, handled it and looked around.

Came back over to the counter, asked if any were in stock. 2 available. I asked for 1, he brings it out, I look at it. Fill out a paper, give my DL, 5 minutes later, I swipe my card, and I'm out the door in less than 15 minutes from going inside.

This is in Georgia.
