    Whats your guys opinions on new pistol?
    Here are my options?
    Xdm 9 3.8 649.99
    Sig 1911-22 399.99
    Somthin around $400 in 9 mm
    Revolver?

    I currently have a 1911 .45 and would like to have one in .22 for cost effectiveness and to get the gf into shooting dont want to hand the .45 and scare her off.
    I also have a crush on 1911s.....

    Also considering the xdm 9 because i dont have a 9mm and would like it for carry however in todays climate 9mm is not cheap around here.

    Should i look at another handgun in the 400 range i dont want a compact already have a. 380 compact.

    Is say get the 22. Then let her try the 45 before the 22. If she loves it that just makes her hotter right? If not then you both can shoot the 22

    XDM. just by the far chance this ban goes through you will still be able to get 1911s. Those high capacity mags for the XDM will go away.

    I agree with you, and I like to have a variety of calibers to choose from. She would probably like the 9mm as well.

    Thats why im tore up i couldnt agree more with ya about the xdm 9 but it goes to the purchase of ammo the cheapest 9mm around here is .50 per round and i dont like to let guns sit in my safe and feel the neglect like mr ar is feeling....

    I understand. I hope that this blows over soon. I remember buying federal bulk 9mm for .20 a round just last year.

    9mm is very manageable. Prices will come back down soon.

    I honestly think it will blow over providing nothin else happens. Prices have already started to drop significantly wasr peaked out at around 1200 entry ars peaked at 1600 and are now auctions are ending at around 11-1200 thats why the .22 is in my sights.

    22 hands down.

    The XDm will cost you your own money on top of the credit, where the 1911 styled 22, which is a better platform by a million miles than the XD, won't.

    Use the extra funds on ammo! It will buy TONS of 22lr!

    But I HATE everything XD so I'm bias. Won't get into why, just personal preference.

    Out of curiosity, why do you hate the m&p?

    I think the stock trigger sucks on the M&P. I've heard it can be cleaned up nice though.

    Intresting, I've never held one. I was going to check one out though. I feel the xd is too square for me.

    95: Make sure to dry fire that M&P when you look at. I think the XD is really square like a Glock, but the XDm is much more rounded IMO.

    Because of the trigger pull and the disassembly i also prefer the m vs standerd xd its not as boxy
