    New from Pa

    Hi Folks,
    Looking forward to learning a lot from this site. Being new to handguns, after test shooting several calibers and doing lots of research, the more I learn the more unsure i am about the right carry gun. There are several that i like and will probably get one of each sometime in the future. Right now, I'm leaning toward a springfield xdm 40sw with the stainless steel slide. Any thoughts? Thanks in advanced.

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
