Default First purchase in a free state.

After a several hour wait to get a paper license. Drive over to Riflegear in Plano, TX in and out 20 min and I get to leave.

Now I just need to schedule a class for my CCW. Living in the U.S. is pretty great and so is the BBQ.

I hope Beto no longer has any influence in Texas...2A supporters don't want another Alamo.

Congrats! Shoulda thought about coming here to Pa. CCW is only $20, and NO class! Yes, great nation we have...well, all but the parts run by Progressive Liberal DEMONCRATS that is.

Shoot! I don’t even go a Gunstore/FFL anymore! I order the parts I want, and build my own. But that is a great choice you picked up. Good luck!

I hate snow with a passion. But Penn is beautiful in summer.

If your first purchase in a free state isn't an NFA item with a tax stamp... You are so doing it wrong.

Talking to someone about setting up an NFA trust. I just needed to buy something for instant gratification. Suppressors are in my future.

Look into silencer shop single shot trust.
There’s probably a dealer in your area that has a silencer shop kiosk.

Make sure you check out Texasguntrader.com before your next purchase. Lots of good folks selling at good prices with zero paperwork on FTF sales

My first purchase out-of-state was a Ruger 4.25" .45ACP 1911 ("Commander" sized).

Very nice OP.

My first free state purchase was a Century VZ58 clone in the parking lot of Cabelas.

Second one was a Walther PPQ at a LGS. In and out in 15 minutes....it took 10 minutes to decide which one to buy haha.

I have had a few but my most satisfying was a Silencerco Omega.
