    General Springfield XD/XD(M) Talk
    I just recently bought my first gun today and it was the 9mm XD-M with the 4.5 inch barrel. Since I am very new to guns I am needing some suggestions as to what type of ammo to buy. I know there is range ammo and defense ammo and I would probably want some of each. Does the brand matter? There...

    Hey, folks! Just looking for some good advice. For a couple of years, I’ve been using Remington 9mm JHP as my daily carry ammo. I could buy it at Walmart, it was cheap (maybe 30 cents per round), and I’ve put a couple hundred rounds through each of my handguns (XD-S and XD Mod.2) without a...

    XD-S Discussion Room
    I know this will set off a firestorm, but I didn't find anything using the search feature *(why are searches so difficult?). So what can be recommended as a defensive round for the XDs.

  11. Options for ammunition purchasing online

    The Ammo Can
    Hi all, as my name suggests, I'm in California. If you're from California, or if you follow the erosion of gun rights, the state has passed a new requirement for a background check to purchase ammunition (can't you just feel how much safer we all are now?). Needless to say I will be at the gun...
  12. Good range ammo for a decent price?

    The Ammo Can
    Can anyone guide me to a place to get decent brass ammunition in bulk for a cheaper price? Also is it bad to use reloads? How about remanufactured? (BTW the bulk ammo I am trying to buy is for the range and not for self defense)

    I recently won a Trijicon 3 x 30 acog in a raffle and plan to install it on my Socom 16. I already have a Sadlak Airborne Scope Mount installed on the Socom.

    Curious as to what SD ammo you guys are using to carry in your Mod.2's. Not finding a whole lot of test results on ammo shot from the short barrel.
  19. XDS picky with clearing live ammo?

    XD-S Discussion Room
    Has anyone else experienced their XDS being particularly picky with clearing live HP ammo? I have a 3.3" 45ACP that will only eat Hornady Critical Duty and FMJ. I've tried Hydra-shok, Winchester Defend, UMC, and Ranger-T and they all hung up in the ejection port when ejecting a live round...
