So its been awhile since I made a thread. I figured I'd show you guys my newest purchases.

First up:

I know its a horrible picture, but its not a paintball gun so who cares. I moved on from whoring paintball guns, to whoring real guns.

Its a Springfield Armory XD9. 9mm, 4in barrel, full size grip. Bought it brand new about 2 months ago, figured I'd take advantage of my second amendment right to own a gun. Its already for sale(WHOA!) to get a different gun.



Now, what most of you guys probably care more about. Its not really a new gun to me, but I guess it is. I traded this gun to a friend of mine for a Protege and cash, and now I've bought it back from him.

NXT
CCM Frame
Shockteck regulator
Q-lock
Stock NXT board

Missed this gun a lot, so when I decided to start playing again, I asked to buy it back, and of course my friend said yes. I pick it up Sunday, so I'll get a new pic of it then.

If I had more than 2 quarters to rub together I'd make an offer on that Shocker.

I made a thread for it when I bought it the first time, then when I posted it for sale. I also made a FS thread on PBN.

Yeah, I bought the XD because of the price, and I like the ergonomics of it. I've grown to absoltely love 1911s though, so I want to sell this and pick up a Kimber. I'd keep the XD, but I know it won't get touched after I pick up a 1911.

I fell in love with a kimber once...for carry though I prefer the safety features of the XD...I'm just not really comfortable with a hammer in my waist holster in the "A1" condition.

A nice little 1911 though...cheap...is the Springfield GI 45...had one...LOVED it...just added a neoprene recoil pad and some cocobolo grips.

When I lived in KY it was the only place to go...he ships...he has fantastic prices and he wheels and deals.

Nice 9mm, I am actually looking to pick up a XD45 sometime in the next few months.

Good choice Dave, I'll be getting a .45 when I pick up a 1911.

Ted, I bought the handgun brand new. I'm not into trading real guns, I'd rather sell and buy.

Not a fan of the .45 cal. I like the .40 cal S&W or a 9mm better. My dad sold his Dan Wesson .357 Mag 2 years ago so that he could buy his Sig Sauer P229 in .40 cal. 3.9" barrel has 10 and 12 round magazines for it. I would have to say that the .40 caliber is my favorite round because, to me, it feels like no more kick than a 9mm but more stopping power. Plus, they have to be nice for alot of law enforcement officers (at least around here) to carry 40's.45 is big, slower and has a lot of kick.

Anywayyyyyys, nice pistol

I doubt I'll ever use my pistol from any range longer than 6 feet, so I'm more worried about putting a big hole in whatever I'm trying to stop. .45 will do just that, and its cheaper for .45 in the model I want rather than .40.

I want an NXT now.

I love this one. Its the only gun I've ever bought back besides to buy for someone else. I've wanted a few of my old guns back, but I would have never attempted to find one of them.

I have dibs on the XD9 if you still have it when I turn 21... stupid federal law...

I may end up keeping this if someone serious doesn't show me cash. I'll just hold onto it and have it as a second gun.
