I stumbled upon this site when reading reviews for the Springfield XD40 and have taken quite a liking to this forum since then; and decided it was high time I join. I just bought a XD40 Subcompact and am in heaven with this gun. Its the first firearm I've ever owned, and am looking forward to many happy years with it.

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.

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.
