This is my first stop at the forum, I haven't had a chance to read much here yet, but I'm sure I'm gonna love it.

I decided to start shooting recently; up until a few months ago, the only gun I owned was a Firestar 45 that I purchased about 20 years ago, and I hadn't shot it in a very long time. I'm going through an amicable divorce, and I was looking for fun things to do with my 14 year old daughter, so I took her out to shoot the Firestar a few times recently and she really took to it.

Which brings me to here.... I've been wanting something with a little more mag capacity and better target capability and I stumbled across the XDm product line on teh internets. I figured that I would end up with a 9 or a 40 for the capacity I wanted, but then I found the XDm 45 and I was hooked.

Saving for the gun was a challenge, with the divorce and all, but I finally bought it from Budd's, and it's now waiting for me at my local FFL dealer. Actually, I'm waiting for it... don't get me started about Maryland handgun red tape and BS.

I'm looking forward to sharing experiences and reading up on everything here.

Sounds like a good way to spend some time with your 14 year old. Sometimes they can be hard to connect with and what a great deal for her to like shooting.
