View Full Version : Need to buy a handgun

01-05-2010, 1:23 AM
Well every since I got my 9mm stolen from my house about a 1 or so ago, i've been itching to get a new one. I've been looking to get a xd 45 acp compact (4" barrel version). Although i rather prefer to get the xd "m" version but since this is california and there not approved to be sold here what can you do. Well there is a way to get one over here legally but i don't have any family members or friends that live out of this state to do so.
Anyways what are you thoughts on the xd models? It would be nice if you guys or gals can suggest any other brands and the reasons why and if possible a price. I'm not looking to spend a whole lot of money for a hand gun but, some where between 400 to 600. Thanks.
I plan on getting one probably either this month or next. I just want some opinions on other brands.

Do you have a secure safe/lockbox? I'd put the money toward that first.

Otherwise, I really love my Glock. It's within the price range and they're about as reliable a gun as you can find.

The xd is a fine pistol. I have shot the XD 9 at the range. I bought the XD45 compact off budsgunshop.com last week. It should be shipping to my FFL within the next day or two.

If I had to own only one gun, it wold be the Glock19. I like the 9mm.
