    Hey bud, If this deal im working on (in final stage) goes through, Ill be the new proud owner of the XD.45acp package that you got!!! Hopefully ill have it in my hot little (not so little) hands by the end of the month. Im going to pack it around when i can, and also pick up a bersa thunder to pack on my walks\jogs and in the summer, "lake time" settings. I had a question. When carrying for person defence, i think im going to use Hornady TAP Hps, but for practice and plinking down the metal targets out at the range, which is the best ammo to use through them that is also pretty cheap.... I was just wondering what you thought.
    I carry because I care.

    I am a "Glocker" but I have other handguns. But when it comes to carrying it is always a Glock. Unless I need to go with something lighter, and then it is my S&W 642.

    Well in preliminary testing, keep in mind I haven't got a chance to run more through it yet - The WWB was much closer to POI and the Wolf, although it ran just fine and was actually rather clean, went all over the place.

    It depends on what you're doing. If you are just running some ammo through the gun like I was for some reliability testing, Wolf was fine. At $7.50 a box of 50 I think I'll be shooting lots of Wolf even though it's not the greatest ammo in the world for this particular gun.

    The modestly more expensive WWB at $20 for 100 does significantly better. I wish I'd photographed a target for comparison.

    If I ever get off my duff I'll start reloading at some point this year, and plan to just "roll my own" after a while.

    I haven't tried any other cheap ammo... no UMC or anything like that.

    However it seems the standard pressure Winchester SXT 230 grain load is becoming a popular choice for a defensive/carry load on hs2000talk.com It performed very well out of my particular gun indeed. The only thing that ticks me off about this is that you have to work that much harder to dig up this ammunition. I'd have bought more if I'd known it was going to work that well.

    That's about all I know to say. Your particular XD45ACP may behave differently of course.

    I can't believe this, as "SIGnified" as I am, I'm actually carrying a G-17 today and kinda proud about it.

    Hmmm, I have this urge to bury my gun in the sand and then shake it off and shoot it and then run over it with a truck and,...I guess I'll get somebody else to shoot it after that one.

    I really ought to get a rubber sleeve for the grip, a 3.5# disconnector, a g-18 mag, an NY trigger and skateboard tape for the grips. Yeah, that oughta do it.

    Well, to be perfectly honest, I still cringe just a little everytime I holster a Glock. Never had the first problem with it, but I've heard the stories. Mostly just operator error, but some that weren't. So I take extra care holstering; I mean, what's the rush to holster? The rush is always unholstering.

    I'm also the least bit squirmish about placing a loaded Glock in a glove box, under the seat, etc. That trigger that makes a Glock easy to shoot, makes it easy to shoot. I'm about to the point that if it stays in the car, it stays with the chamber empty.

    I always reholster very slowly, and I always keep the gun in a holster. That goes for all handguns, not just Glocks.

    Of course, it all comes down to what you are comfortable with. I'm not comfortable carrying a 1911 cocked and locked, so I don't carry one. I am comfortable carrying a Glock with a round in the chamber, but there are plenty of people who aren't.
