    i have 2 offers so far

    XD9SC, 2 mags w/ pearce grips

    or

    USPc 45, 2 mags, mepros.

    my question is: the uspc is v1, i'm a lefty. is it possible to swap the safety/DC to a lefty unit?

    only issue is that i wanted to stay 9mm but i know the uspc is worth tremendously more than the XD.

    opinions? :o

    also have an offer on a glock27 but if im going to go bigger than 9 im going to go 45 :hs:

    yes, you can switch the V1 to a lefty. It's a V2 i believe. I've never done it myself, but I've read that it's a few minutes and like $5.

    they have an ambi switch listed on their pdf catalog but they dont list a price. i'd probably do that.


    i really want the XD (or 239 or 26) to CCW and i fear the USPc is too big for me but idk. :o

    I wouldn't do the trade with the XD without them throwing in $75-100 cash too I don't think.

    Are you still doing the weight loss competition in the main, or did Red Lobster get you?

    I attempted the all you can eat shrimp on Saturday but the wait was an hour to and hour and a half.:ugh:

    Keep the 228. If you must get rid of it get the USP. I would keep the Sig, though.

    Ok, really, of those two, I'd go for the USPc. It's not really a step down in size though. But I think it'll be more pleasant to shoot, that's what I've found comparing a USP to an XD.

    And yes, you can buy the swap parts to switch sides. Check the HK forums, you could quite probably do the whole swap yourself.

    No I'm still in it - I actually weighed 213 as of last thursday. I'm not weighing myself again until this thursday though.

    I've had no fast food and very little restaurant food since I started, and I've been running/walking at least 5 days a week.

    The all-you-can-eat shrimp at red lobster almost got me though :hs:
