    Im gonna pick up my first .45 today, went to my lgs and they had three XDs's at $549 a pop, gonna snatch one up b4 they disappear. I'll be replacing my S&W Bodyguard .380(big upgrade:), and I'm gonna be passing on the little Smith to a lady friend who will be learning to carry for the first time!

    Still waiting for the background to come back(no problem, their backed up). The bad news;) is they only had the SS model left:p.

    Thx, unfortunately the closest range isn't so close so I'm not sure when I'll get to fire her.

    I'm assuming you're not talking about the box of ammo in the picture lol. It's clearly more than a dollar a pop. Lol.

    No I'm talking about finding some range rounds, I'll shoot two magazines of the critical defence just to make sure my girl isn't temperamental w em, every review I've read they feed and fire perfectly.

    I was skeptical about the xd line until I held one I'm my hand. I like the feel, especially the xds in 45. How is the recoil on that thing?

    My wife and I looked at those same models Friday. I liked the looks, but I didn't like the narrow grip. I have a XDM 45 5.25 and like it a lot.
    Actually she was looking at it as an alternative to her Glock 26. She liked the looks too, but not our so much the grip.
    But that's why they make so many different styles.

    Grip is important, and they look better than a glock to me

    Even if you find cheap target ammo you will want to shoot around 20 rounds of the defense ammo you pick just to make sure it works fine in your gun.
