Springfield XD-45

Springfield XD-45

This was my first firearm purchase. I enjoy shooting it and it is my only pistol. But I am far less proficient with this than I am with any of my long guns.

Nice xd mattitude. Don't worry about not being as proficient as you are with your rifle. Nobody I know can shoot a handgun as good as they can a rifle. Usually everybody can shoot a rifle better because of the longer sight radius. It's just natural. As long as you can hit in the target zone within 20 yards with a handgun, your doing fine.

Thanks, I love this pistol. Its the only one I own and the only one I've put more than a hundred rounds through so I guess I don't have a lot to compare it against.

Cat, I am able to hit the FBI target within 25 yards so I guess I'm doing well! My biggest problem shooting it is not pulling the trigger straight back, I sometimes get a little twist in my trigger pull and as I'm sure you know that does WONDERS for your accuracy.
