First of all, thanks for the great post.
I'm going to be buying my first handgun very soon and I was hoping to get some opinions from some calgunners out there. I have always shot my father's .45 so I am very comfortable with this caliber.
I've pretty much narrowed down my choices to:
* Springfield armory XD45 tactical
* HK USP 45 (haven't quite decided yet between the full size or compact)
* S&W M&P45 (haven't quite decided yet between the full size or compact)
Any calgunners out there that have experience with any/multiple or all of these?
The purpose will basically be for primary home defense weapon as well as plinking at the range.
I know that the HK is the most expensive, I'm just wondering if it's worth the extra coin or not. From what I have read up on, most peoaple seem to be very pleased with any of these.
