    New Gun Day........Springfield XD-40 Sub...



    Did a trade with my Father, he's more of a 357mag guy.

    I fired it last week.....talk about a dead on for a sub at 21ft.

    Not as thin as my 1911 or BHP 40. but I'll get use to it.

    I do like the snap of a .40

    I have the same for EDC, but my wife has taken it over (I can't daily carry at the nuke plant), so I will probably be buying another one. She shoots it better than I do, so I guess I shouldn't complain.

    My buddy just got one of these and I found the recoil a little much. However, I'm used to my .40 which is a Ruger P944 that is much heavier. Nice gun, though.

    I have the SA XDC in 40, and I will admit that I didn't like it when I first got it as much as other guns I've had, but it's definitely grown on me. I wasn't shooting it well, but 1000 rounds (so far) has taken a lot of that away, and I enjoy its reliability. The recoil isn't bad once you get used to it. I was pushing the muzzle down for a while, but learned to enjoy the recoil and now put the shots on target where they belong.

    I'm still going to get a Sig one of these days though. They just shoot sooooo nicely.

    Congrats.

    I have a G22.

    Whenever I do get another weapon I'm leaning towards a XD40.
