    Can we get this posted to every entry and exit to the White House and halls of Congress. Of
    course they would add about a thousand pages full of crap. They should add it to the health

    Interesting, in theory I rented an XDcompact 9mm for a class I took. If it was instead a full

    In hand gun training class I shot an XDcompact in 9 mm and then shot the same version in .45
