Nice!! Welcome, you're at the right place.
10 day wait? Ouch!
I really like the Scorpion, have a 938 Scorpion too.

Same goes with ammunition... first you're going to need to break it in, make sure you get full power loads, as the Sigs have tight tolerances and stiff springs, so you want to cut down on malfunctions. Stay away from aluminum or steel cased ammunition initially! After it's broken in, it may work okay, personally I will not run it through any of mine. Not that it will necessarily hurt the pistol, but the cases do not react the same as brass, as far as expanding, and contracting from being fired, so may cause extraction problems.
Make sure you read the lubrication thread here in Sig Talk. Most recommend grease where metal parts slide... and oil where they pivot / turn.

Welcome from Texas and congrats on your P229 Scorpion!
Besides ammo get you a cleaning kit and some lube (oil and grease).
Clean and relube before you head to the range. New guns are often covert with preservative oil to prevent corrosion while they're waiting for a new owner on the shelf.
Once you got her - clean, lube, shoot, repeat.

Another welcome from Texas.. I would agree with others.. Ammo, ammo, and more ammo.. especially if you like to shoot.. I am a member of an indoor shooting range and go once a week.. Ammo goes pretty fast especially if you have a pistol you like to shoot...
