The Air Force is assigning me to San Antonio, TX this summer. Currently, I am stationed to Nellis AFB in Las Vegas. Due to deployments and the cost of hunting for non-residents in Nevada; I have missed out hunting the last several years. Unlike TX; Nevada doesn't give military members resident status for hunting permits. It can get very expensive to hunt big game. I recently purchased a XD-9 tactical model and love it for accurate shooting and inexpensive ammo (especially compared to .45 ACP). I have heard that 9 MM is adequate for Javelinas. In TX there is a year round season on Javs; so I figured that I would have good opportunities to hunt this animal. I probably will use my SKS or Mini 14 as a primary weapon and carry the XD-9 as a backup. Any suggestions on 9 MM ammo for Javelinas? One of the reasons that I got the XD-9 instead of the .40 or .45 is that I am new to the handgun world so any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.
