    Weather was good finally! Brought out the Glock 19, Beretta 92 and XDS 45. My dad met me there. He had a new toy!
    Brought his 'new' used Desert Eagle 50AE. Holy cow! That is some pistol. Shot a whole mag worth. (That was about 4 lunches worth of ammo)

    Not sure how accurate I was cuz I was just trying to make sure I could handle it. Its heavy and has a kick!

    My XDS is less than average as far as comfort. The Beretta is 10's straight across. The Glock is an all round good handgun. Not sure why there are anti Glock folks out there. Its really good.

    It wasn't great. I would definitely not choose it for a battle side arm. After shooting it for a while I think it did leave a callus on my thumb near my hand. I also thought the ext mags were gonna fall out. AND I have NOT sent it in for the recall. I hear they just found the fix and are starting the repair process. So all the pistols that came in will be taken care of according to the time they arrived. :/

    Interesting thing about the mechanics of different people's bodies. The XDS .45 feels great to me, even after a long session.

    Glocks are excellent, but don't "fit" me.

    I'm in the same boat as TXI. The XDs .45 was a great feel for me as well. The 1st time (and only time) I got to handle one, it shot great and felt great, very accurate. I was pleasantly surprised due to the fact that I have big hands. Maybe you just need a little more time with it?

    I may have got to use to the smooth Beretta. Then a little hand cannon like the XDS 45 comes into play. When shooting with the stock mags (short ones) the gun wants to jump out of my hands and I'm holding it pretty firm. I may need to bend my elbows more. The first time I was shooting with gloves a while back. This time without. Guess I gotta get use to shooting without gloves. I love the 45 power though!!

    A heavy gun like the Beretta 92, shooting a light round like the 9mm usually feels good. Try a 9mm 1911 sometime. The grip angle on a Glock feels wrong when you're switching to and from Glock, but if you shoot only Glock, it becomes normal. I carried a G19 for several years, and once I adapted it was excellent. I would still carry Glock except I switched to .45 and the Glock equivalent to the G19 in 45 is the alien .45GAP.
