Springfield XD 9mm / 40 S&W
Hello everyone this is my first post so excuse my incompetence. I am in the market for a new handgun and I sure I want the Springfield XD but I am not sure what caliber to purchase.
I have some experience with my fathers SP101 .357 MAG and that is about it.
The gun will be ideally used for Home Defense and Practice. I am growing more fond of the hobby.
I am fairly new to shooting but am willing to practice a couple times a month. Therefore ammunition price is a factor.
I had my eye on the Springfield XD 40 with the 4 inch barrel. But am wondering if it is a bad idea to purchase a High caliber handgun as my first gun. as opposed to the 9mm.
also I was wondering if like I have read about some of the glocks, does this handgun allow for swap-able barrels between the 357 sig and 40 S&W?
any personal advice or experience you guys could feed me would be appreciated.
