    N00B from Tennessee

    Name's Jeff, it is nearly my one year anniversary of the start of my new addiction (first firearms purchase). I bought a Sprinfield XD40cal. with the 4" ported barrel. Absolutely love it, love it, love it. I am probably up to 1200 rounds through it at the range and it is well worth the money and i have converted two of my coworkers into buying their first firearm after letting them shoot it.

    One of the guys at Specialty Arms II in Lavergne turned me on to this site after i was discussing with them what to buy next as i want something small to carry in the front pocket of jeans/khakis/shorts etc... after i get my carry permit and this XD has me spoiled in the features, accuracy, and ease of use.

    I have been looking at either a .38 revolver or a keltec P-11 9mm or the smaller .32 or .380, but cant decide. Any recommendations be appreciated.

    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Welcome from KS...

    There are just too many suggestions to be made, search some of the current running threads and you will find TONS of information.
