Smart people.

Welcome to the FTF, and don't forget to stop by the Introductions section so that people know that you're here!

If someone wants to slip me a couple bills and a plane ticket I'd be happy to pick up another XD.

I'll give you my electric bill, the satellite bill and my water bill. Will that help?

You took my joke

Why the .40? Not judging, just asking. I have the XD45, and have been very happy with it.

You would have 3 extra rounds on the XD45 & 4 above the XD40, i bleve. That does count for something.

1) This is my 1st gun. for my 1st I think the .45, for me, is overkill. I don't want to destroy anyone, just stop them. Although I would love to get a big boy right now I'll stick with the smaller.

2) Style, baby. Beautiful, with the textured grip. It's new, fresh & unique

Forgot number 3) I want to target shoot & it feels more comfortable in my hand

orangello 03-08-2010 11:02 PM

Good reasons there.

Have you shot both to compare the recoil? Many people consider the recoil on the 40 to be very "snappy" while the 45 is more of a "push".

A buddy recently opted for the xd9 rather than the xdm9 largely due to a misconception about the grip on the m model. He thought it would be a "squishy" grip & it wasn't "squishy". He opted for the less expensive xd when he felt the only real gain of the m to be added capacity.

At the show, you should be able to do a good sid-by-side on the feel & hand fit. If you haven't, you might benefit from a side-by-side recoil test at the range, if you can rent or borrow a couple of pistols to tryout.

No I haven't compared the two. One of the gun ranges I checked with a few several months back will not let you fire their weapons unless you become a member & to become a member it would cost me, I believe it was around, $150. I think I'd rather just buy one. Like I said it's my first gun, so whatever I buy I really wont know the difference
