Not a true statement. ESP has nothing to do with gear or ability. My XD runs with the best out there. The shooter's ability is more important than the gun itself.JesterXD40 said:glock would be better, you'd shoot stock service with it, but esp with the XD
If steel is calibrated properly, it should fall just as readily to 9mm as to 40S&W, with proper hits, of course. The sport is supposed to test the skill and ability of the participants, not the power of the cartridge used.markas70 said:I shoot my 40 in IDPA,been twice and place third last weekend in esp. Just need to work on hitting the longer range targets more accuratly is all.
i dont mind not shooting with the glocks not as many in the esp class. One thing i have noticed though is that the 9 mills take a few more shots to get the steel tagets knocked over where as the 40 one hit and falls but there isnt that many steel targets in the matches anyway. ESP TOTAL
