    Good day from New Mexico

    Greetings

    I am fairly new to handguns and am considering a CCW. I currently own one Springfield Armory GI 1911 and love it. Will most likely not carry it. I am considering an XD .40 either 4" or 3" for carry.

    Hope to learn much here. My choices may very well change!
