The 357 sig will be the most expensive to shoot. Go with a .40 or 9mm.

"shooting times autoloaders buyers guide 2004" magazine did a .357 XD tourture test with 5000 rounds you may be interested in reading. I found the issue at a bass pro shops store a few days ago. It maybe available for a back issue order too.

They picked the .357 because recoil and muzzle slide velocity generated higher stress to the polymer frame than the 9mm or 40mm. Good luck.

You can get WWB 9mm 100 rounds for about 12 bucks at walmart not too sure about .40 though. Probably around 15-17 dollars.

I would get the .40 because you can convert it to either 9mm or .357. It's like having 3 guns in one.

At least hold off on buying something else until you have a chance to handle a XD. for me the XD fits my hand like a glove, and ergonomics are an important consideration.

WWB at wal-mart .40 s&w I pay 15.97/100

My wal-mart people HATE me since I'm usually buying 3 calibers at once they just hate when I make them stack all those pretty white boxes up :D
