Great guns!
To me they feel and shoot better then my 1911a1. They put Glocks to shame as far as..... well everything.

i paid 850 for mine might be a bit out of the price your looking for but its a damn sweet gun. i cannot get over just how easy it is to shoot the recoil is nothing like a full size 1911.

here is mine with esmerelda grips:

I feel the same way. The only thing I like better is the M&P.

So, picked up a new Ruger SR45, $475 out the door. They had this nifty box of Federal ammo thats 100rnds of fmj and 20rnds of Hydra-shok. Came with two mags too.

I looked at a XD45 but they wanted $550 used. It did fit equally well I felt.

All and all Im happy.

I hope it works for you. Im not a sr45 fan don't care for the recoil impulse or trigger.

Did you try the xdm its a different gun than the xd.

Nope, was def a XD. Watched some videos as recoil seems average? We will see I guess!

Congrats on your purchase and good luck with it. Hope you enjoy it.

It was time for a new signature. This is what you get.
