Seeking Advice from Veterans
Hi all. Let me first introduce myself. My name is Nate and I recently just finished 6 years in the Air Force as TACP (Tactical Air Control Party), "the unknown spec ops force". I spent the majority of my service in austere conditions, so I am familiar with various arms.
I just moved back to the Baltimore area, and seeing as the crime rate here seems to skyrocket everyday, purchased a Mossberg 590 A1 Tactical Shotgun for home defense. While this weapon is most likely more than adequate, I am looking to add either a Springfield XD .45 or Smith and Wesson .40 M&P for home defense. I realize that you should pick the handgun that "fits like a glove", but am looking for opinions to steer me one way or another. I have held and fired both of these hanguns, and at the moment am undecided.
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
