This forum is only as good as YOU make it. Lets all work together and have a forum we can be proud of! But lets not forget to have FUN while we do it!

Comments, suggestions and opinions are always welcome. If I can help, I will.

Happy shooting Dave Gillespie - (Sharp Shooter), you will be missed and remembered.

We will miss you Jerry Roberts - (woodyubet), you will not be forgotten.

We are better off from having known you Dean Stephens -(ampersand) It wont be the same around here without you.

Husk, before you commit to the Shield, take a look at the XD Mod.2 in .45acp. Double stack, 13+1, 3.3"bbl sub-compact. Great shooter.

If I can find one, and if I have the money, I'm gonna get one.
I have 2 shields now, one in .40 and one in 9mm.
They fit me, they feel good in the hand, they are good looking, and they are good shooters.
I think the .45 would make a perfect trifecta. :mrgreen:

I'm an XD fanboy, and to tell the truth, I've been eyeballing the XDs 45
My son and my buddy both have one, and when I shot them, I put the first shot in the center of the bullseye, and that works for me. :great:

I had a XD tactical 5" in .45acp... if it weren't for the fact that I am such a glock fanboy I would still have it... very very nice pistol. Yes I sold it and got a Glock G21 ;)
