Steyr Club- I just wanted to say that this is an awesome resource site! I've been cruising the forums since last February-March after I had tried out an older M40-A1 at the Military Gun Club (the only place those of us stationed abroad (specifically Europe) can shoot, aside from our yearly qualification). It was sweet and I've been counting down the days until we're back in the CONUS and can acquire one for myself--although it'll probably be an S9-A1 or S40-A1 first (or maybe the replacement barrel so I can have both...if the keeper of the purse strings lets me that is) to replace my Kahr CW40 CCW. That being said, are there any North Carolinians that might be able to point me in the direction of a gun shop/range that rents S9/S40-A1's so that I could try before I buy (...or maybe some uber-generous NC steyroid might want to meet up and let me try theirs out)? We've got our orders to NC but I haven't found anything via Google yet. Thanks again for all the great info that keeps getting shared here-keep it up!
