Well did some homework and shot a few guns at the range. Ruger Browning and glock.. shot better and loved the feel of the XD. So went and got a XD 40 sw subcompact. My first gun and can't wait to hit the range and spend the 300 rounds I bought. Hope to get a chl soon. Anything I should know or do to her before I hit the range sat? I can't wait.
