I agree with you 100% I've said that so many times on other threads I don't even state it any more.

Agreed! The old "rack the slide and watch'em run" routine holds about as much water as "if ya shoot'em outside make sure and drag him in before you call the police".

Also agreed 100% id much rather grab my xdm (pulling the slde back is much quieter) or my ruger sp101, no noise at all till I pull the trigger.. plus much less worry about collateral damage/what direction im shooting in
