    My Friend is coming in from out of town and we are going shooting. Highlights included:

    Springfield XD vs. Glock 23 head to head
    Desert Eagle .44
    My Ruger 9mm

    It should be fun, we are thinking about renting the S&W .500 but I am scared :big grin:

    Shooting Sports here in Tampa had one so I shot and rented it, the damn thing jammed and FTL every other load, so I was just scared it was gonna glock on my ass. It does give you a work out though.

    Alot of the Rental ones do Jam because when you shoot a 50cal they get DIRTY QUICK and if you dont clean it after every use it will FTL because its basically gunked up. Its not a bad gun, just the range didnt keep it clean.

    Got back from the range and the Glock 23C and the XD-40 are about equal. I prefer the XD-40 because the G23C is a compact and my fingers were sliding off the end. Both were accurate and I couldnt tell any difference in quality or accuracy. The guns are the same dimension except for the XD-40s handle is about 1-1.5" longer which made it fit in my hand.
    Personally the XD was great and definately a bargin and an alternative that is $100 cheaper for the same gun.

    Shot the DE .44 and people were coming over to see the gun, they literally stopped shooting to come over and see what we were doing.
    One tip, if you get a DE get a Hogue Grip it made a 100% improvement in just being able to hold on to the gun
