I plan on using it for Paper, Steel, and maybe the occasional critter.


I've got $500 in Bass Pro Shops gift cards coming and so I'm limited to what they sell and I'd like to keep it under $600. I've got a Delta Elite 10mm and Beretta Neos .22. I'm feel the need for a 9mm.

A full size XD 9 is my next choice, but I think my next purchase will be an XD in .40.
Can't go wrong - I have one i bought the day i turned 21 (i'm 44 now) and it's been one of the best guns i've every owned. top port eject is very nice and can't think of the last time i had a jam/misfire. Plus you can't beat a lifetime warranty. Throw a nice set of grips on and good to go.

Whoops. Bought another one today. And this time, I might be in a bit of trouble over it. Ya see, I was sitting there, being a good boy when I felt my phone vibrate. I instinctively pulled it out of my pocket to see what it was, and it was an email on my gun account(I guess having a separate email account just for gun stuff might be the first clue you have a problem....).
Click on the new mail button, and see it's a notification that a gun is back in stock. Click on the link, and see the gun listed as available, add to cart for price. Well, of course I had to add to cart to see the price, and once I saw it, I couldn't pass it up. A couple more clicks, order sent, all done. Phone slides back in the pocket with no one even noticing.
Why the problem? I didn't pull this off in a meeting. Heck, I wasn't even at work. I was sitting in church for a funeral. I'm going to hell.

I never said she was giving me grief over wanting to buy another gun, she was just pointing out that the gun I wanted was already in the safe. If I had been saying I wanted to buy a second 500, she would have been fine with that. I certainly catch more grief for selling them than buying them from her. When I told her my predicament over trying to list the STI's, she asked why I would do such a stupid thing anyway. So, they are back in the safe.

Don't just put them back in the safe. Take them out and go shooting!

Why would anyone sell guns you ask? Because I lost an argument with the wife. We were at the store and I was wanting to pick up a mossberg 500 combo shotgun. She said I already had one, I swore I didn't. Guess what was buried in the back of the safe behind all the silly black rifles? None of these have gotten any range time since I bought my first springfield XDM, and of course I had to buy another one of those, so now I have about 8 9mm's in the safe and only those two XDM's have come out this year.
Very nice STI's! Very good guns indeed. I would sell a few 9's before I sold these!

Is it just me or does the shooting range seem alot busier than usual lately?

Took the Model 99 out to the range for a bit of a tune-up, and the place was packed..especially the pistol ranges.

A sign of the economy picking up. People have more discretionary income to spend.

The pistol range I go to usually have a pretty good wait for a lane unless you go real early.
15 years ago the same place was maybe half full anytime I wanted to shoot.

Also seeing a lot more women there...
