So let me start out with the gun, this is an amazing story if you do not want to read the review skip down. I was shooting a glock19 compensated and I would like to say AMAZING gun, no recoil because of the compensated(holes on top) for reduced recoil. The gun was long and that was probably the only problem for me. The slide was easy to rack and really i fell in love with this gun. Cannot compare the Xd and Glock though. They are both good in their own ways. Todays story: Today after warming up with 7yards, we went to 25 yards quickly. Me and my uncles were probably amazed when I finished my first magazine load. It was all bulls eyes. Today was the day i out-shot my mentors. I have been waiting for this day my whole shooting. I have been shooting for not so long but already am out-shooting them. I then let them finish our bullets but they could not shoot at the consistency i did. I am happy my life goals are complete right now. What are your stories of first outshooting your mentors?
