Recent purchase

My name is Daniel Montgomery. I am a Security Officer employed by an international firm and working in the Charleston, SC; USA area.

Recently, I bought a used XD9 Service model (Bi-tone, to be specific). I wanted a 9mm around the $500 range and had brought the decision down to the S&W SD9, the Ruger SR9 and the XD9. Firing side-by-side made the final decision for me.

The S&W is a light gun that felt wonderful in the hand, but I suppose because of it's weight, the recoil was very apparent. The Ruger felt very similar to the XD, but I found myself losing the sights on the black target (bifocals).

I could shoot the XD all day.

I am in the middle of some unrelated training now but when finished with this program I go for my SC CWP and SLED Levels 2 & 3 card (Armed Officer).

Glad to be here and hope to learn alot.

Welcome from the upstate. The XD-9 is a great gun and you will enjoy it.
