Just wondering if anyone in Colorado, specifically around Ft Collins or Golden, had any XDs, preferably, the service or SC, in 9mm or .40.

Would like to test fire these guns, hold them, etc to see if I like them.

we could go out and shoot somewhere, ive got an ak we could take out.

let me know guys! if not i guess ill have to find a range somewhere

Come over to Utah for the Cabela's grand opening next week, and maybe Nuget and I can take you shooting.

I would be fine with it too if I were there. Do you own any guns. I have shot many guns just by going to the range and striking up conversations with people there when I am shooting my stuff. People here for the most parts are very nice and will ask if you would like to shoot it. Especially if you are asking questions about it and express and interest in buying one. Once I was with my wife shooting some guns and was talking to a guy about his guns then went over to our lain and he brought over a Beretta CX4 and just set it down and said you can shoot it if you like just have to use your ammo. Just made sure I wiped off our finger prints before I gave it back to him.

You might also be able to rent one at a local club. I would call some of the ranges. If they don't have one to rent, you might tell them that you are interested in buying one but you want to shoot one first. The owner of the gun club might have one or know someone. We have a couple of gun shops that have shooting ranges and they have every gun they have for sale available to rent.

It is not completely out of the ordinary for people to do this Masterofg3.
Seriously If you are worried about being gunned down.....just stay home and look at porn on the internet Masterofg3.


If I lived in Colorado I would be up to it!
Nothing wrong with finding new shooting buddies!

Look up DanaT, I think he is in your neck of the woods.
There are a couple other Colorado folks on the board as well...I just don't remember their names.
I'd go shootin' with you if I still lived there.
My wife always asks if I'm worried about getting shot when I go shooting with someone I haven't met..I tell her that I'll be armed as well so it'll be a fair fight! :shock: :lol:

masterofg3, since you are going to be wearing a "I'M STUPID" T-shirt anyway, can we meet somewhere? I'll have my SKS and SA milspec 1911, you bring 1 of your XDs, ok? :wink:

Yes, I am in CO.

I would suspect that either Ft Collins or Golden (two unusual towns to get requests from as they aren't close) you may be a student sincethe only thing those two cities have in common is universities.

Anyways, email me. If I think you are on the up an up after private conversation, I will let ya shoot some stuff. I guess I am halfway between those two towns...

you know how much it costs to rent them?
$10 to rent plus you have to buy a box of their ammo, usually PMC. If I remember correctly, they charge around $6 for a box of fifty.

Sorry, guess I haven't been there in awhile :oops: . However I'm 99% sure that if you rent one of their guns, you have to buy the ammo from them.
