It's not all about placement. Food for thought...
Obviously the last is a joke ^^

This is incredibility comfortable to shoot. 10+1 of .45ACP

Don't let that get to you.

Well this is what I ended up with. I had my choices narrowed down between a glock 43 and this 9mm xds with the 3.3" barrel. The lack of a secondary safety steered me away from the glock but it definitely fit my hand and was light as a feather. Annnddd I couldn't pass up the price for the xds. $440 for the bi-tone

Here is some pictures of my guns unfortunately because of my neck and back problems I have recently sold them all off except for my S&W 9mm and my Rock River operator 2 Ar-15 I gave that to my Son in Law. this last Christmas

I had two 30-06s 2 Ar-15s 2 9mms one Mossburg 500 Flex

The one that I kept was my S&W 9mm it is a well worn but rebuilt Police trade in.

I love the S&W it fits my hand perfect and feels like your shaking hands with a old friend when your holding it.

Yeah I ended up with that POS though a trade. It would only hold 5 rounds in the clip any more and it would jam.

I gave that to a guy that did my stucco work for a tip.

Yes it is a 6906 with a police issue high capacity magazine.

I have had a few S&W semi autos yet I like this one the best.

I was planning on stripping it down and polishing it to a mirror finish but haven't got around to it yet.

The Knob Creek machine gun shoot is upon us. I will be there tomorrow with my Dad and Nephew. Going in the evening to see the tracer rounds. If you live in the Louisville area, you owe it to yourself to check this out at least once in your lifetime. I am only about 25 minutes from there so easy traveling. Check out some of the youtube vids of past shoots and drool over the awesomeness. Only in America baby!

EaOutlaw, those Hi Point carbines are a blast to shoot. I will get one soon in a 40. Their pistols are cbeap but they are dead nuts accurate. Too bad they are heavy as all get out.

The High point was fine, the week link was the mag any more than 5 rounds in the mag and the bullets would nose dive causing jams.

I read online there was a few solutions to this, yet I never felt like dealing with it.

Went to the Knob Creek shoot tonight. Insane atmosphere. There were two mini guns out there. Seeing those tracer rounds flow at a couple thousand rounds a minute was awesome. Looked like a solid red laser. Between those and the Browning 50 cal playing dueling banjos was a sight and sound to behold. Let freedom reign!

I've been getting boxes of 200 of CCI A17 ammo at Wally for just under $50.
