$12.50 + tax for 50 rounds 9mm

I just bought a Springfield XD .45 ACP. I haven't used it yet. I'll be picking it up in about a week or so. I...

Hi. I'm told that having a .45 ACP handgun will be a little expensive to shoot. I was wondering what a reasonable price range would be for range ammo and for concealed carry ammo. I'll be buying...

It was actually the show in West Palm Beach.

I guess I'll have to try out some holsters at the gun shop, or shop around after I go pick it up.

What is meant by a quality belt? Won't a belt...

Well, I went home to FL for the weekend. There happened to be a gun show in town so I stopped by to see if I could handle a .45 XD. It felt good in my hands, too. I assumed that it would fire as...

Thank you for clarifying about the magazines. I guess I just judged them by looking at the indicators on the back of the magazine (whether they were in a row or staggered). Thinking about it now, I...

Well, I went to the range today as I mentioned before. It was pretty interesting. I was able to shoot about 7 handguns, including the Glock 21 and Glock 30 that were in the opening post. I shot 3...

Thanks a lot. Especially since I've had some fun trying to figure out those acronyms on other threads. I wouldn't have thought about some of those points. I think I'll try that tomorrow. ...

We do train with sidearms. However, an overwhelming emphasis is put on rifles and larger machine guns. For the lower ranks, pistol training tends to be minimal unless someone is deploying, it's...

I believe the range that I've gone to offers the two Glocks (21 & 30) for rent, but not the Sig P250. I haven't asked about the Springfield XD. I'm going to try to run by there this Wednesday to...

I've only shot a couple of handguns, using 9mm and .45 ACP rounds. A friend suggested that I try it and it seemed fine, so I stuck with that.

Thanks

Thank you for the welcome.

It seems that buying a handgun online carries a lot of added expenses that might not make the discount as appealing for the effort involved. I guess I'll just save up...
