    Went to the range

    I went to my local gun range and they have most others offer rentals ..
    Well they had the gun i wanted to buy for rental is the XDM 40 cal. In all black and due to the fact i told it was my birthday on sat. the lady behind counter didn't charge me...

    Now i did sing up for my CCW/CPL class and paid it in full too, so that helped too i guess, got a box of 50 round to fire and just one clip, but it cool take my time getting use to loading it ..i have to say loading 16 rounds 3 time was fun and just a bit of finger pain in the azz to get the 16 load in ...
    It a great range and i suprise my self on how well i did with this hand gun... Frist clip all 16 were either in the body and head..I would have take pics of my target , but i gave to my buddy ,so he could put them up in his garage wall of fame, i guess...

    Very nice. Try an Uplula magazine loader, saves the thumb.

    The XD's are great guns. I have a XD9sc and I love it. I prefer the 9mm over the 40S&W but that's the same old caliber war discussion. lol. But the 40S&W does allow you to get a 9mm conversion barrel and a .357SIG conversion barrel, while the 9mm does not. Might not be what you want to do, but having the option is always nice.

    Ah, the beauty of the XD. Those are great guns and I'm glad you had a good first shoot with it!

    Yep, Uplula is the greatest invention. One MAGAZINE loader, many guns.
    (I got yelled at for saying "clip" many months ago, so I'm passing it along)

    If you get an AR, the Maglula is even better.
