New from Houston, TX

New to forum, new to pistol shooting. Just got my first handgun after recent election. Couldn't risk waiting any longer.

Proud owner of XDM compact 9mm!

Purchased and shot first at Tactical in Katy. Just went today to Athena Gun Club at Wilcrest and 10 today and I have to say the store and range are way upscale....country club upscale. But a lane was reasonable and I had a great second shoot getting comfortable with the mechanics of loading handling and shooting.

Will post elsewhere, but I'd like a nice gun cleaning kit for pistol and future M&P rifle....nothing cheap. I enjoy the process. Or maybe a list of good products. Seen ballistol and froglube advertised. Something better for a range shooter?

Also anyone know of anyone other than truglo making a fiber/tritium combo sight for xdm?
