    Nu-Guy From Illinois

    I am really new to Guns in general.Just picked up a NIB SA XD 45acp 4: Service with Thumb Safety for $489 OTD (GunsAmerica to my FFL and then to Me) Local would have been $100+ more.
    I went a little crazy on the accessories.
    As for Cleaning I went with the Hopps 44-45 cal Pistol Kit and a Can of Breakfree CPL and a small bag of cotton patches .45cal sized. Assorted Mops and Red Cotton work towls also.
    Checked out an iTAC Retention Paddle Holster and seemed cool for the outdoor range so I ordered one along with a Fobus Paddle Dual Mag Pouch(#6936), 3 Factory 13rd Mags and a Maglulu ( I viewed the video and was hooked ).
    Radians NRR 29 muffs (I plan on using the spongy ear pieces also)
    Yellow Wrap around Safety Shooting Glasses
    Also ordered a heavy leather Gunbelt.
    Picked up a 50cal ammo can and filled it with (all .45acp 230gr fmj Unless noted) (ordered three more ammo cans since then)
    250rds UMC (Brass) Mega Pak ($139) damm should be half this
    50rds Fiocchi ($29)
    50rds Brazer Brass ($29)
    2x 50rds Remington UMC ($19.95)
    50rds Winchester (JHP) ($27.99)
    500 rds Collins Cartridge RLN ($159)
    2x 50rds Collins Cartridge RN ($19.97)
    250rds Federal Mega Pak ($100)
    Purchased at several different shops....

    As for safety - I may have viewed every safety video and read every doc on the INTERNET in the last 6 months, since I decided on the purchase. Now I need to put what I've read and viewed in practice so it becomes muscle memory.
    I plan on taking a class or three as well.
    A cigar buddy of my is a retired Sheriff (1980's drug task force member) and we will go out and shoot together for my first range visit tomorrow. Although he is a Customized Colt Gold Cup guy I guess he still shoots 45's...

    Welcome to the forum, and congrats on your new gun!

    It seems you covered just about everything, what about a safe, do you already have one? And how about a range bag?

    Actually I dont have a safe yet only a lock on the door of the room where the gun resides and a trigger lock for the gun.
    As for a range bag I'm using a bag I got from one of my other hobbies - Cigars! It's a good size and black rip stop nylon and it doesn't scream "GUN".
