Default I'm new as well

Hello folks! My name is Deejay. I live in East Oakland, Ca. I have a small collection for now. An XD40, Rem 870, M&P40 (don't like it). I've been on the hunt for a CZ452 22LR. No luck yet. May also be trading my XD for my preferred choice, Sig P226.
I'm building up my Jeep on spare time and I garden. I don't own a tv, but I have a **** ton of books.

Welcome aboard!

Just wondering what you don't like about your M&P? I already have a 226 but was also thinking of getting a M&P (feels more comfortable than the XD but the trigger is crap).

And no my Sig is not available for trades..

In response to Onegtalon:
It feels really crappy in my hand. The quality I don't like. It feels like a cheap plastic toy. After 400 rounds. I still can't get it to group well. I had a Sig2022 in 9mm. That thing was a POS too.
Of the polymer pistols, I rather like my XD's. I've had 3 so far. 1 9mm and 2 .40. Can't complain about em. The grip is not as nice as my old 226. But for what I call my duty pistol. The XD's I think are great. I've read complaints about em. I know purist put their ego's before logic. But I have never had a cycle failure, misfire, no rust, absolutely zero issues. I use Winchester white box or LoadX. They fire great and I get tight groups to about 25ft.
I have a big palm and short fingers. Everyone else I've come across with similar hands find the XD about as comfortable as I. I teach a lot of women to shoot and use the XD. And for the most part they like it.
For me, the 226 and 229 just fit me like a wetsuite. I also prefer the weight over polymer pistols. Had a 1911 and it was something I wouldn't ever use as a home defense pistol. I've dated women that were like 1911's. Love the look of em and they feel great in the hand.
I sold everything to buy my house and get outa debt. So once I decided to live in East oakland, I started buying again. My budget was much more limited so I didn't get another 226.
If you haven't shoot a XD I would say give it a try. If you find your way in the bay area. Hit me up. You can throw a few hundred rounds through mine.
Thanks everyone!
