    thanks,
    I am definitely working on that aspect as well. In studying preparedness, its not just having the stuff, it knowing how to use it. And that don't mean jack if you mind won't function.

    You'll get plenty of recommendations here as this is a great, helpful bunch of folks and very diverse in what they (we) own and like.
    My nightstand (and duty weapon) is S&W's full size .40 caliber M&P - which of course I recommend.
    Thanks for the tip,
    I have not found, nor looked very hard at this point for a range that rents xds. I have shot the glock 17, 19, and 26. Although very popular gun, when holding a 17 versus a xd 9. The 9 feels better. I also like the price of the guns (glocks and xds) If I remember correctly the M&P is priced higher. Either way, i still have a lot of work ahead of me.

    Welcome. Either of the XDs will make you a fine firearm. Mine have been utterly reliable and continue to eat what I feed them without a hitch. Have fun.
