    Hey, glad to be in the great state of Texas.

    After waiting my 90 days I finally purchased my first pistol. The only downside was the election came a week before my 90 days. Took a couple of weeks to find the XD(m) .40 that I have coveted at a decent price.

    I've actually spent a fair amount at the range before, but in MA it is all but impossible to get a hand gun (and if you use it or lose it you face 10 years of legal battles).

    Strange to me (from MA) to reach for a pistol on the night stand rather than a bat under the bed.

    Good to have you here. Welcome to one of the few free states left. ;) Our state still needs some work in the "freedom" department, but it's quite a bit better in that department than some of the northeastern states at least. ;)

    How do you like that XD-M? I never really liked the original XD series for some reason, though the XD-M has grown on me judging by the few times I've handled one.

    Welcome aboard...so hows it feel to live in a state where you can buy a gun at a garage sale or walk in a store and walk out a few minutes later with a pistol? WOO Hoo...
    I had a friend that lived in MA for awhile and said that it was less paperwork to buy a house, than a gun....

    Thanks all.

    Walking into a store and buying the gun you want is great. :texas:
    Sort of like being treated as an adult after leaving a nanny state.

    I'm liking the XDm - of all the pistols I tried this one felt the most "right."
