No, that's offhand. I don't use a rest for pistol shooting.

There shouldn't be that much price difference between new and used, so I would suggest you buy a new one if your wallet will support it. However, Ruger has repaired guns that I've bought used.

Default Hmmm...

Hope ya'll don't kick me out, I had a last minute change of mind. I went with the Springfield XDM 9mm. The used SR9 I was looking at was sold (missed it by about 2 hours), so it was down to new stuff, and I couldn't get past the trigger on the new SR9. I also like the fact that you can single fire the XDM during a tactical reload or some other extreme situation, (I just don't agree with requiring the mag to be in the gun to operate it) the black on black looks a lot better than my brother's OD on black (which is why I think I had such a hard time with it "looking plastic").

Now, does anyone have any good places to buy 9mm ammo? Looks like Walmart is the "cheapest" for target and plinking around here.

Anyone ever used ammo made by Bitterroot Valley Ammunition company? (Montana) There is a pretty decent price on the 1k bulk box at RM Ammo, Buy Ammunition Online. Figured my brother and I could split it.

Is a 9mm worth reloading? Some quick math seems like it isn't.

Good pick on the XDm. I have a XDm 40 myself. It's my primary HD gun and favorite range gun.

Walmart typically has the lowest priced ammo.

Springfield is a good brand and the XD series pistols are good pistols. Ya' did fine.

I've got the XDm with the 3.8" barrel. Good gun. I like the way it fits my had with the backstrap it came with, the XD gear it came with was a + too.
Enjoy it.
