    I made the switch

    After about 1200-1400 rounds through the glock, it still just didn't feel right in my hand, especially compared to the XD. I shot holdcard's XD like a pro. So what did I do? I'll bet you've guessed by now... sold g17, and bought an XD 4" service 9mm. Great... now I have to make an account over at XDtalk, and buy a new holster.

    I had issues with the G17's grip until I install the laser grips.
    Makes it so much friendlier to my particular paws!

    never is a strong word, especially in the world of firearms.

    BTW, flyfish, I'm moving to flag later on this summer for school. I'm starting the NAU shooting club, so we'll have to get out and get some range time.

    I hope you have your union dues up-to-date and your license squared away. Making the switch is an electrician's job don't you know?
