Well, I bought a XD .40 for myself and just went shooting yesterday.

For being fairly new to handguns, my first few mags were dead on. I'd estimate the yardages to be around 15ish and then 30 yards(we were also using our rifles on same targets) And, well she took down 2 beer bottles in the first 10 rounds :D

But, after an hour or so, my hands were frozen(the joys of shooting in Alaska) and sore from loading mags and I couldn't hit stuff at distance but it was still a lot of fun.

My buddy was shooting his EAA and said, "well you can feel pretty safe if your down range, cause I cant hit a darn thing" When he tried my new XD, he got hits on bottles and keyboards at the 30ish range....


Has anybody tried Fiochhi .40 FMJ ammo? I had a box of UMC and a box of Fiochhi and the Fiochhi refused to feed. I had to pull the slide back a little then, the round would level itself, and would chamber... I shot some hydrashocks and American Eagle and both of those shot ok...
