New to GS

I am a true gun lover living in the Florida pan-handle! I carry an XD 45acp because I can!(And I am jaded from the 25+ years I spent in South Florida!) I recently started reloading 45 acp and really enjoy the entire process and how great it feels to produce quality rounds.

I've had my dealings with the acp but I and
a couple others are hard headed wheel gun
nuts.

Glad to have you on board. You obviously like the XD (else you wouldn't carry it). Have you heard when they'll come out with an XDm in .45 ACP? The idea of one of those really appeals to me.

Hey XDman

I am a 26 year veteran working as a contractor in Iraq, but will be moving onto to a job at Hurlburt Field in late June...where exactly are you? I recently purchased an EMP...can't wait to shoot it...give me some ideas on ranges, shop etc in the area and WELCOME!

I live just outside Panama City. There is an indoor range here on Hwy 390 near the old airport (Jay's Guns) check them out...

let me know when you are back in the states, maybe we can get some trigger time. I love the EMP but I do not feel comfortable walking aroung the local Walmart with a single-action "cocked and locked" configuration. The laws of probability would catch up to me, and I would eventually have an unplanned discharge... Not good...
