    Been meaning to post this for a while but was waiting until i uploaded pics. Bought this dec. 28, springfield armory xd9. This is my first gun, i have been in love with the XD series ever since someone posted pics of it on my home forum a couple years ago and since then started looking into(drooling) over them. i checked one out in a gun shop last summer and it just felt "right" in my hand. I finally got to shoot one last month when i actually found a range that had them for rental. i shot it fairly well and as i said, it just felt "right".

    I went with the 9mm because it is my first handgun. the ammo is cheap, i can practice with it more and it can be used for self/home defense. i plan on keeping it in my car.

    guess thats about it for now. ive been lurking in here for a few months so i tried to leave out anything that would get me laughed at :hsugh:.

    can anyone reccomend me any good places to buy ammo online? i bought a box of gold dots at the store but it was 21.00 for a box if 20 :eek4:. i think i got hosed.

    is this site legit? http://www.ammunitiontogo.com/catal...le-gold-dot-124gr-hp-ammo/manufacturers_id/24

    seems like a way better deal.

    decent WMD post. Good job, could not find anything you should get your dick stepped on for. Did not come off as a noob, decent pics, somebody has been paying attention.

    Congrats and welcome. Ammunition To Go is definitely legit, I order from them quite a lot.
    In fact, I'm waiting for some stuff from them right now. Should be here today or tomorrow.

    i tried a glock, i enjoyed shooting it and consider it an on par weapon in all aspects, however i shot better with the xd, and i liked the extras the xd had (external hammer pin, loaded chamber indicator). not to metion the fact that i have a hard on for the xd design.

    i see a glock in my future though.


    edit: forgot price. paid $487 out the door

    Congrats... I buy most of my target ammo at Walmart. They've been cheaper than anything I have found online...

    I've never shot an XD series, but have heard great things about them...

    I bought 100rds of Monarch 9mm steels for 19.50~$ w/ tax tonight at Academy :coolugh:

    I still have a bit of WWB to shot through, but I'm hopefully going to the range tomorrow and will see how the cheapo's shoot. I'm kinda hoping to experience a FTE or FTF, just for practice since I haven't bought any snap caps yet :mamoru:
