    Well I did it!!!! I walked into the Store and said "Sir gimmi the biggest GAT you have"

    Actually I did'nt say that, I politely asked about his preference in the glass case. I had my eye on the XD 9mm SC for some time and I GOT IT. Im sorry for such a post but I had to tell someone and im not about to call my parents or friends(who are not into guns) and blab about how it was meant to be and all that. Im currently lookin for an instructor as well as a Holster. I have to start skimming alot of the earlier threads on here for advice on gear for it, I know theres alot. Im thinking about the Range tomorrow. The AR might come with me too:fighting0002:

    From the bottom of my heart I want to send a warm thank you to all NRA members, esteemed congressmen and activists who helped insure that the average joe can make the decision to purchase a recreational and defensive firearm. Everyday they're trying to find a way to take the right from us. Because great citizens like Texans are out there, I realized the joy and excitement of purchasing my first handgun today...:texas:


    I also want to thank Texas Gun Talk , that goes out to the forum mods, sponsors, and members for the deluge of info, advice, and for just bein a Texan. THANK YOU

    HAHA MaxPower, that name "MaxPower" stayed on the spine of my binder in highschool... it rings with power...

    That grip extension was the first piece I thought of and i suspect I'll get it before I leave the states.
    Okierifleman, your right, I've also wanted a Colt 1911 GI for some time as well. I need to fire one first.
    As for my next purchase maybe a 1300 winchester 12 guage or Mossy 500 who knows but I will be petting my XD for some time. thanks

    +1 on that. At some point in time someone will ask you "Just how many guns do you need?"

    The proper response is " More than I've got.":cool:
