XD9 does it again...
I am not sure if this should go in the range report, or the training section, or here. Move it please if need be. I just finished anothed 2 day handgun course/training. CRG,(close range gunfighting) and my XD9 ran like a scalded dog. For some, that is a good thing. This is the second 2 day class, and both days we shot around 500 rounds, and more if you wanted. In many diffrent combonations. Fast, slow, double taps to running the mag dry as fast as you can on many diffrent targets.
If you are going to get an XD you will not be sorry. I shoot this gun alot, and it has not had one problem. Oh wait only one. It runs out of ammo to quickly. Doing fast reloads, to practicing mock failures, tap, rack, bang. I would trust my life to this pistol in a heartbeat. I carry what I train with, and this weapon is a good one. I don't go out and brag on anything normally, but I will boast on this gun. The ammo I shot was from ball from Georgia Arms, to JHP, all in 115gr. Because it is the least expensive I could get. I put a few of my carry rounds thru it as well. It really liked this ammo too. Hornaday 124gr JHP/XTP. The Corbon in 115gr is a fine round also. I belive the corbon has a slight edge. Your gun and mine may differ. Thats all. I had to pass on the report so to speak. Oh, if you want to train, these guys were top notch as usual. SI, that is.
I also shoot a Glock G21SF, but would really like to try out an XDM45 if it should ever be offered. I won't be trading my G21sf off for an XD45 service anytime soon, but would get a XDM. But for now I am satisfied with the XD9, this is a very dependable weapon. Don't be worried about it, get one if you are on the fence. Load up on mags too. Narry a problem with them either. I don't normally drop my mags, but sometimes the drill may dictate you do. They held up fine. Dirty, but ran fine.
Shoot'em to the ground Gabe Suarez!
