I carry a 9mm on duty. I carried one in Iraq. I am a certified "expert" shot with one. I tell ya...I'm not really impressed with the 9x19. I want something a little beefier. I want something that begins with a "4". I understand that there are many calibers out there, and that they all have their pluses and minuses, but instead of confusing the issue, I have narrowed it down to one of those calibers. Hey, they say XD's multiply, so maybe I'd get the other one later, but in case I don't get it I'd rather be sure I get the right one first.backstay said:Why have you ruled out the 9mm?
1 High cap mags
2 good stopping power in +p+
3 low recoil
4 cheap to shoot, which would make you a better shot.
At first I was going to ask WTF but after re-reading the thread I have to agree with orc4hire sentiment even if he probably could have expressed it a bit more tactfully None the less the original poster was looking to decide between the 40S&W and the 45 GAP in an XD. Since the XD-10 does not exist yet is really should not have enter into the discussion.orc4hire said:Hey, masterofg3,
