    Got a new toy friday

    Picked up a new toy friday. Springfield XDm stainless 40cal. I have always wanted one and was in a shot and they had a really nice one. 425 out the door. It only came with the factory holster but im still happy with it. Got to find mags now and maybe a small backstrap. Just wanted to share.

    Guns are NOT toys.

    They are tools and weapons. Calling them toys, is a bad idea.

    Well done. Bringing a new gun home is a great experience. Making friends with it is even more fun.

    That's a good gun. Enjoy it.

    Really? That's what you decided to contribute?

    OP, congrats on the new TOY!
