Brand new shooter here. Just completed handgun safety and have purchased XD 40 Subcompact. Have shot a total of 200 rounds so far. I was originally only interested in purchasing a hg for home defense. However, during range time for the class I discovered just how much fun shooting really is. The XD is my first gun purchase, but I am already researching others. I went to range with a box of 100 wbw with the intent of shooting 50 rounds, but couldn't stop....had to buy more in the range gun shop. I think I have a new obession. I will say I have already learned the white box winchester seems to be awfully dirty compared to the pmc brand I bought at range. Anyway, I look forward to learning more about this great hobby and XD talk is a great start.
