    Congrats on a high qualifying score

    But, you had to go to school to learn this:
    He also explained the difference between open and concealed carry.

    My user manual for XD9 says that using reloads will void the warranty. I don't think Springfiled will have anything good to say about you using reloads.

    For a handgun, NEVER NEVER NEVER use reloads. (In MY Opinion.)

    Why?

    Because reloads aren't what you are going to be defending yourself with. Because reloads aren't recommended by the manufacturer. Because reloads aren't reliable... (As a general rule most reloads work fine but occasionally they don't. And when they don't it's YOUR hand and YOUR gun which get blown up... Factory loads are warrantied by the factory. So if they blow up, you get compensated with a new gun and your meds paid and maybe some pain & sufferng thrown in.)

    Shoot factory ammo in your EDC. You may not want to shoot them gold plated thug-stopper hollow points all the time, but shoot something which is close in weight and powder charge for practice AND be sure to run a few rounds of your defense ammo through the weapon as well on occasion. Otherwise you don't know if the ammo will cycle/function the weapon and you don't know how it feels/recoils.

    Reloads are fine for rifles (IMO), because they aren't as critical since rifles aren't usually used for CCW and a missfire usually can be worked with.

    Hey there Chris... Congrats on qualifying!

    I do believe that you caught the bug... Once you attend one professional training class, you all of a sudden find yourself wanting to go to more of them. The more you go to the better you become. Each class I attend I am amazed to how much new stuff I learn. Whether it's a new technique, or more problem solving skills, it's always worth the price of admission as far as I'm concerned. I have yet to spend money on a class I didn't feel was worth the money except for my mandatory ccw class which was pretty lame compared to what I had already known.

    on reloads, I have heard that SA is doing some clearance work on the barrels to make the XDm's feed reliably. my buddy was having some trouble with Fiochi feeding properly, and we compared bbls on my newly acquired xdm and noticed a difference in how the bbls were cut. did some more research and come to find out, people having feeding issues that were sending them in to SA, got them back with this extra machine work done.

    I've shot thousands of reloads thru my guns,my friends have shot tens of thousands of reloads thru their guns,I put more rounds thru my guns in a month than most shooters do in 2 years.I reload on top of the line equipment and have never had a problem.I can load to mimic my SD loads by chronographing the velocity.
