    Thumbs up Newbie

    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.

    Welcome from north central Arkansas.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    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.
