    Range Report for new XD40

    I'm usually a 1911 type shooter, but recently fired some rounds from someone else's small .40 cal Glock.
    So needless to say I was bit by the bug. I really wanted one of these small 3" sub-compact type pistols.
    Did my research, looked on-line and went to one of my two favorite spots of self indulgence.

    Was thinking Glock, but left with a sweet little XD40 Sub-Compact.

    After doing some more reading I figured out why I liked the feel so much. The XD40 has more of a 1911 style grip angle.

    Now, I know that these light small framed pistols like to hop around during recoil so the shooting style I use with my .45 ACP 1911 does not get this pistol back on target quickly between rounds.
    I swithched back and forth today several times from the XD40 to the Taurus PT1911 and the lack of dampening actually gives the XD40 more recoil.

    Fired a couple hunded rounds through each.

    I love it. Twelve round seems to last forever compared to eight. Very acurate.
    The springs in the magazines seemed to give a little after a couple of loadings. I can load them now without the speed-loader. The were very tight when they were new! I'm healthy, but damn I thought I was gonna break my thumb. Never used a speed-loader before, took some getting used to.

    It sure did break-down and clean easy.

    I have got to stop buying crappy ammo. The aluminum casings are "crap". Some of the primers actually came out during cycling.

    "I will never buy cartridges with aluminum cases again!!"

    I can hit a golf ball three hundred yard, but today I hit one AT 25 yards. It disapeared.

    What a blast.
