Just purchased my first handgun (an XD(m) .40) right after Christmas. (Well, actually, my girlfriend purchased it for me)
I hadn't shot an actual handgun in quite a while, due to living right in the middle of the city, and living in Canada for about 3 years, most of my gun experience was in the back country with rifles.
I've been shooting my pellet gun for at least 5 years, and wanted to make the jump to the real thing. I figured now would be the best time before prices skyrocketed or handguns were outright banned from sale.
I'm sure I will have a lot of questions, so please take it easy on me.
