    Pictures of the 9mm

    Great choice for a gun for home protection if you bought gun in the photo. Heavy for every day conceled carry but a great made gun that will shot any ammo without jambing. The only Ammo that I have ever had issue with was PMC which for some reason shot left but still fired ever time. The other nice thing is that your choice can be used by both left and right handed people. Also a easy gun to shoot one handed.
    You should be happy with your new purchase for a long time

    Thanks for all the help everyone. I ended up buying a Springfield compact XD .45 It's a little larger and heavier than I wanted but it's a heck of a gun for what I payed. I'll still be on the lookout for a small 9mm for when this is too big to carry. Thanks! -Josh

    You can find a good Ruger 9mm or .40 in that range and the trigger is really good. I own H&Ks, Springfield XDs and two Rugers. A lot of gun for the price those Rugers are.

    Didn't you see "The Highlander"? The two handed Claymore is as Scottish as the River Spey and Haggis!

    An Honest gun shop will tell you that things like XDs and Taurus are every bit as "good" as guns costing near twice as much. They are all more accurate than any of us are. Great choice. I'd love a .45 but my ammo budget is more 9mm.:(

    Thanks Philster, my dad reloads .45 so I'm set for ammo. Picked this up for $400, figured I got a great deal with the two blade-tek holsters and ammo thrown in.

    I have the XD9SC for carry. Great gun and very light. You won't go wrong with the XD line

    Great gun choice. I have that same gun, I load it with gold dots and it shoots and groups like a dream. Get the extend mags 13rd +1 is great to have in .45 but its a little mag heavy with 13 rounds in it. great gun :thumb:

    Thats funny stuff :thumb:. When im not at the range I only load it to 12 to save the thumbs. You can get mags that are factory original from Springfield Armory so they are not as bad as some of the other Hicap mags on the market.
