I have an XD. I love it. For HD/SD I use hornady TAP HP. For practice and plinking FMJ or round nose works just fine and is cheaper. Check out RWS, Sellier & Bellot, federal for plinking ammo
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
