    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 Westerville (suburb of Columbus) Ohio.

    The Charleston area is beautiful. Been to the Sanctuary to golf at Kiawah a couple of times and always have to go into Charleston and enjoy the wonderful food and fun downtown area.
