    Howdy from Texas

    I just finished my concealed class and am waiting for my permit. I am told it will take around 90 days. I am glad that my tax dollars are at work. I may die of old age by the time it gets here. Anyone I am just here to gain some knowledge about a couple of pistols I have in mind
    As of now I have narrowed my choices down to a XD 45C or a Glock 23. Opinions are welcome.

    Welcome from Montana.


    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 another Texan. I am getting an XD, found alot of reccomendations on it. Glock also has a good history, but I have chosen the XD9202. Thats just me.

    Welcome.
    I have an XD 40 and I am very happy with it. Glock has a very long history and is a good gun. Buy what feel best and that you are most accurate with.

    Welcome Aboard from Georgia's coast!

    I carry a G23 and it's a great sidearm, but so is the XD.
    If you can, go to a range that'll rent both guns and put a box thru 'em.
    You'll learn what you like and dislike after that.

    Good Luck and Stay Safe!

    Mine took 4 months

    I heard they had one guy doing the processing in Austin.

    Either the xd or the glock will do. I have a preference for the XD.
