Springfield XD 9 subcompact as first gun?
I plan on taking my concealed class in December and after tons of research, I've decided a 9mm is going to be my best route to take for my first gun. (Let me clarify - my first HANDgun, I've hunted for 27 years so I've got plenty of guns)
It just seems like the best caliber for me to be learning on due to the recoil and cost factor of the ammo.
Anyway, I was thinking of buying the XD sub for carrying and was wondering what your thoughts are on this purchase. I have a shooting store about an hour from here but they are... not ummm... pleasant people to put it nicely so any help or guidance here would be appreicated.
I was looking at the larger versions, but getting one that's easily concealed is important to me. I'd love to hear any feedback, suggestions, or other options that you might have for me. Thanks in advance - sure glad I found this place!
