Springfield Endurance Test Guns

5-Jul-12 – 19:07 by ToddG

One step closer: the guns are at my local gun shop and now await Maryland’s mandatory waiting period. If all goes according to plan, first shots will go down range on Friday the 13th…

Train hard & stay safe! ToddG

  4. Hmmm Friday the 13th? Maybe you should wait until Saturday. :-)

  5. Never thought I’d see the day. Hope it works out, dude. Are you sticking with the wood stocks?

  6. gtmt — Negative. I’ve already got two sets of Crimson Trace Master Series grips here waiting for the guns.

  7. Can I change my guess for first failure to 1? It would be fitting for Friday the 13th.

  8. I was unaware you lived in MD. That makes the fact that you have a carry permit all the more impressive.

  9. I do not see this pistol on their website. Is it a new model they are going to introduce???

  10. Oops I found it…

  11. I must have missed it somewhere – There are multiple guns this time?

  12. Dropkick — Someone already guessed “1” very early on…

    Kevin — I always get two: a test gun and a backup. My plan is to verify both guns are suitably reliable for carry and then pick one for the test gun, leaving the other to serve in the event the test gun fails for some reason.

  15. Todd:

    Is the purpose of the Maryland waiting period to allow you to tease us with fragmentary photos of your new pistol?

    By SteveJ on Jul 6, 2012

  16. SteveJ — Yes, that’s it exactly. Because I’m certainly patient enough to wait quietly for my two brand new custom shop 1911s…

  18. It’s Friday the 13th. Are you up yet at the range and shooting it?

    Just kidding. Good luck when you get the chance.
