:D:D

This will be my 100th post on XD Talk. In that short time, I've learned much about my XDm, along with how much damn fun it is. The best part about this place is that it isn't limited to SA at all. I learned my Chinese AK that I thought was just average is actually the one of the Holy Grails of the AK world. Pre Ban Poly Tech's are worth some money, so if you have one laying in your closet (like this idiot) you're net worth just went up.

Anyway, I just wanted to thank everyone. This place is great. So, I pose another question. I am about to buy another hand gun... Let's say you had $1,000 to spend, what would you get?

This calls for a celebration:D

Good thing you held on that AK;)

@jd manila: how much does an HS2000 (XD) 9mm cost there in Manila?

Congats! Now to your question, if you are here in Manila your $1000 can't buy you another XD. safe shootin'!
wow that is crazy. You can buy cheap labor and a lot of god food for cheap, but electronics are expensive there. You'd think that with all the talent/skills they have in the PI that they would be able to replicate the XD.

I love the PI.

MABUHAY!!!

Congrats! I am approaching my 200th post, and I am right there with you on site-enjoyment.

If I had 1k (and permission from SWMBO!) I'd pick up a Ruger SR1911 (650ish) and put the rest into ammo for getting used to her.

I'm an addict for my 617 4" .22 S&W revolver. It's a 10 shot with the sweetest trigger ever. It is very easy to go through a brick of shells in one outing if you aren't careful.
There is a dude in MI that makes speed loaders and loading block for it too.

That's crazy:eek:

A little over $1,100 for an HS9:???:

Maybe a good chunk of it goes to import fees and taxes.

YES,you can say that again, gun owners here are crazy, cos' even though we know how much it really cost we still buy them, got no choice, we can't buy directly from the USA or any country of origin for that matter, wait 'til you hear the prices of Kimber and and the likes and other US made f/a, ammos, accesories and so on:cry:

Congrats on the posts. I too chose XD talk because I feel comfortable asking any question and getting a legitimate answer. Even had someone help me figure out a problem with my truck.

As for gun, I have been wanting a 1911 for a long time now, i'd probably start shopping around for one of those.

Sweet, thanks again for all the suggestions... I've been away for a while so it is nice to come back to 2 pages of comments. I think I'm going to put that money to the RRA LAR-15 chambered with the 5.56 NATO. I've heard good things about Rock River Arms. Cheers!!!
