    Ok so I am getting into target shooting and steel core challenges...... So here is the big question for everyone......

    What is a GREAT semi auto hand gun to use for completion?????? I use a XD-9 right now, but who's got suggestions?

    completion or competition?

    THE best I have found is the 1911 in different configurations (depending on the discipline. i.e. IDPA & USPSA, Steel, Target)

    Do you also cc your XD you have now or will do so and if you like it and plan to keep it . It would be simple to buy the XD-M for match and target use. Nothing new to get use to between them except a bit more weight. You should look at class rules and deside what class you want to compete in and see what enhancements you can do down the road too.

    M&P pro or glock 34/35.

    Both are excellent platforms, more capacity than the 1911.


    I've been running the g34 for a few years and have found no reason to change.
