I'm going to pick up my new XDM Eiltr osp on Thursday. Looking to put a compensator on it but spring says to use a lighter recoil spring. Any one out there have an idea of what spring to use?

Absolutely amazing firearm, I am originally from south Florida. Go Trump! Considering accessories, understand there is a serious learning curve when it comes to red dots; watch you tube training videos. Most agree that the Venom offers good value; my choice 6 moa. Since I consider your Springfield and my fnx tactical both open street fighters, I would suggest the strongest light possible; my choice surefire xh300/1k lumens/Tir lens, little more focused over xh35.. Their xh35/300 lumens/1k lumens works really well in tight areas; home defense and alleys. I expect Trump and Republicans to win big, and we can return to bulk ammo purchases lol. Wow is your Springfield Awesome!!

I can't wait. Ammo is such a bummer right now. Ive looked at the venom and the burris fastfire 3. Just not sure which one yet. I like the smaller dot like a 3 moa. Ive shot a staccato with a red dot and shot very well

I can't wait to get mine set up the way I want. I want to put like 1000 round through it. But I'm rationing very closely. 70 cents a round is crazy.

Agree, although we have been buying ammo for years, therefore are ok to get by without buying, however watching prices. Backyard pistol range out to 30 yards. Our rifle range is 100, 150, 250 and 450 yrds.

I would love to have property to be able to do that. There only one outdoor range in my area and it by appointment only because of covid. You can only resver for 1 hour at a time. Its stupid.

We used Trail Glades near Miami 80-89, when I was down there; I think I moved my family to Colorado in 89. The price of bulk ammo was so affordable, we were popping 1k-1500 rds month for years lol rifle/pistol mix. W

e also reloaded few hundred of 44 each week, for red hawk and desert eagle; good times. I recall reloading 45, but again, NATO ammo was affordable, and came in cool wooden crates. After Republicans win, the mkt should improve

Consider using that firearm first, muzzle rise is minimum. Good purchase, here in Colorado, we are controlled by liberals, socialist, marxists, and communist; 2013 mag capacity limit 15 rds. Not Happy!!! Vote Republicans!!!
It depends in the type of shooting they are doing. You plinking vs them in competition makes muzzle rise a whole different animal.
The XD series especially with the higher than needed bore axis makes it worse.
If they are shooting against a timer, "minimum" could be the difference between win and lose.

Consider searching for events and regulations, because I think pistol only, maybe 10 rds, and 3 gun pistols could be restricted by length of magazines; not sure. Great idea, although in this environment, may have to wait for ammo prices to settle; your going to need several thousand rds or more lol. Check out the JM 940 pro 12 gauge and remember, it is all for fun, peaceful protest lol. In the words of Donald Rumsfeld, you go to war with the skateboard you have, not the one you want lol; use any firearms you have, or access to. Once involved, you will decide. Good luck for sure. Get out the Vote

I already have a escort df12 tactical shot gun. Its actually really good semi auto. I also have a m&p sport 2. Im ready for 3 gun. But like you said. I need lots of ammo and its just to expensive. The matches they have around here say about 150 to 200 round fir pistol. Which is fine for now. But I will have to find cheaper ammo if I want to continue doing it a lot. I gone once before and it qas at of fun. Looking forward to doing it again.

Consider contacting event organizers, and discussing your concern of having enough ammo; at this time, they are either covid19 shut down, or considering your issue, as most shooters concern. If they are to attract shooters, they need to address the ammo issue.

I trust you have found their website, reviewed it and their question/answer area if available. You will do fine, we need to make sure every Trump voter gets to the polls; for now, that is our target lol
