Just Pulled, er, Pressed the Trigger on My First STI

Well folks, I done went and did it. Months of saving and waiting patiently have finally paid off and, barring any shipping issues, I should be running the background check for a new STI Edge tweaked out with a handful of Dawson Precision components.

The original plan was to order direct from STI but the 20-week lead time was a bit of an issue when I could find folks sticking new guns capable of shipping right away. STI even suggested I look at Dawson if I wanted a quick-ship blaster. Considering I had been saving for a number of months, I didn't really feel like waiting for another four...

While my Edge won't be tuned by Dawson, it will come to me already wearing their front sight, extended mag release, and the Ice magwell. Not too shabby of an upgrade list at $100 over MAP.

All in all... It should be a solid pistol pre-loaded with just a few competition-proven goodies, ready to roll. I can't wait!!
