    Just bought a pistol.

    Just went to my LGS and bought a Springfield XD-S 9mm. Got it for a little cheaper than Gander Mountain, so I guess that is good. Unfortunately, No time today to go test it out... this week for sure. I chose it over a used M&P Shield and the Sig P938.

    On track to get my CCW permit for Ohio.

    Joined my local hunting group so that I can use the range, check. Bought a decent pistol, check. Hopefully, in July I will pass my CCW class.

    Was in the infantry for 3 years as a machine gunner, not much experience with pistols though.

    Congrats! Hopefully you don't like it too much. I think heroin might be a cheaper hobby.

    You picked a great gun. I have one on order myself. Would love to hear your range report as soon as you get to test it.

    First of all Thank you for your service. Welcome and enjoy the new pistol. A great choice. I thought of getting one of those. But will likely end up with a shield to compliment my 9c. Let us know how it does on the range when you get the chance. Stay safe.

    Why not the SIG, if you don't mind my asking? I'm in a debate with myself (happens often) whether to buy the P938 or the XDs (.45 cal). Seeing as you just went through the decision making process I would appreciate hearing about it.

    God loves the infantry.
