Thumbs up Well started my gun collection

Picked up a Springfield Armory XD 40. I can that rednecktone for this one. He was a bad influence this last weekend LOL. Thanks for letting me shoot yours Zach! I finally found one I really liked.

Good choice, I've heard good things about them.

I prefer a revolver or a derringer in .45 Colt/.410 myself but what's important is what you like.

Id love to get a .40 or a .45, Ive never owned a pistol before but ive been in the market for sometime now. I want something with a little more knockdown power than a 9mm. but I want something with a little capacity to it, so I guess my best bet is the .40

Thats where Glock gets a one up in my book, you can stack the hell out of any caliber Glock. I never liked glock until i got one now I am a firm believer in there quality and simplicity.

The XD is a bad ass firearm and the fact that they come with all those accessories is sweet! The XD sub 40 kicks like mule tho and I have the hardest time loading a full mag lol the springs on those definelty need to be broken in. Have fun with it!

.40 is the lowest I would go for knock down punch. The way I look at it, I want 'em to stay down with the first shot. Nothing like a slow, heavy projectile to fill the bill. Hell, even if they have a vest on, it'll knock 'em down and they will KNOW they got hit by something.

The XD's are nice H&K are nice as well. Glocks are cheap and over rated. Springfield uses stuff that has been around since 1911 and still works perfect; why fix something that isn't broken?

Here is my favorite pistol! Ruger Mark III Slab Sided Competition .......nice 4 lb .22 pistol.
I use a Sig Sauer P230 for concealed carry and home protection. Loves those nasty JHPs!
One can scream knockdown power till the cows come home but you put a .22 HP in someone's bread basket and they will no longer be a threat.

.40 cal is good. .380 is good too for smaller guns like P3AT, if you're gonna carry concealed

I carry a Glock 23 now. 13 rd cap. is nice...the 27? eh, not so much. 9 rd Capacity kinda sucks. Too much reloading at the range. but it is almost perfect for concealed
