Default I have a Big Problem

I have a a problem first I wanted to buy a Colt 1911 .45 but I already have a .45. An XDM .45 which I love. I went to my gun shop yesterday and I was looking around and I need a gun where I can shoot more because as we all know 45 Caliber Ammo is not cheap. So I have a little dilemma. I looked at the Glock 19 Gen 4 sweet gun and I also like the M&P9 and the M&P 9 pro. Now since I have an XDM and I like Springfield maybe I should get an XD9. All these guns to choose from. Should even get a 9mm some people say get a .40 its not much more for the ammo.

For cheap ammo 9mm is the only way to go.

No I will wait to get a 1911. I believe a 1911 should be a .45

Why? That's just silly talk!

On second thought, buy the Glock so there's one less out there for us to see in the shops.

Instead of a new gun, buy a reloading setup with some .45 dies.
Ammo cost issue sorted.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

I personally would stay away from the XD or XDM until they solve the problem of the breaking striker retaining roll pin. It this is just a range toy OK, but this is not a handgun I would bet my life on. If the pin breaks the gun will not fire. Houston Police have removed these guns from service.

I haven't had any problems. It shoots great.
