Hi all, just thought I would introduce myself. I'm a moderator on a few other forums, and a member of many, and I'm always amazed at people that jump in with both feet, and don't make their first post on the "new members" forum.

First off, I'm not a big gun person. Also, I'm not blind either, I think I know where things are going. I became interested in having a rifle and pistol in the same caliber.

That's where big brother comes in. Not that "big brother", my big brother, although I'm in my 40's, and bigger than him by several inches, he'll always have that title in my book.

He has no problem with my decision, so off to Cabela's we go. I finally settled on the feel of an xd40(they didn't have a 45). I made the decision, if you consider him dragging me by the earlobe "my decision", on an XDm45.

2 weeks later, I own an XDm45, and we're off to the range. 1st mag, all but one on a 10 in. shoot-n-see at 25yds. Second mag, much better group. Third mag, I'm thinking that I wasted my money on expensive targets, because it is difficult to cover up 13, 45cal holes in a group of maybe 5in. with those round dots.

A few hundred rounds later, my groups are a bit off center, to the right, but not worth messing with the sights IMO. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this gun.

My first SA, and .45, and I'm tickled pink.

Kicking sand now, because I have to buy the AR now, my wallet is saying "ouch".
