Congrats on bustin' your cherry. I'm glad it was uneventful.
I do have one comment, and it is in no way meant to criticize. I just go off about this at the slightest provocation - please forgive me. Even though you got an excellent deal on your purchase at Gander Mountain, I won't let any of my money leave my hands in any business that requires me to disarm. Most folks here are more forgiving of businesses that show firearms on the premises, but I feel that the only acceptable compromise is one that exempts CHP holders from a "no loaded weapons" rule. As such, one must show at least some level of familiarization with a firearm, and they deserve the benefit of the doubt IMHO. OK, done ranting.
Again, congrats! Looking forward to meeting you at the Richmond OC meeting this weekend!
