    Just stopping in here to say hi. I like to hunt and I reload for most of my rifles. I CC and ordered a new 4" XD in 9mm for that purpose. I found this forum while looking for some info on a Springfield 1911 pistol. While I have several other pistols, the XD will be my only Springfield so far. I've been researching and seriously considering a 1911A1 Mil-Spec in the near future.

    Welcome to the forum Don!

    I strongly recommend the Mil-Spec, though the Range Officer is an even better deal for just a bit more. Either way, you will be getting a fine gun.

    Had? What did you do, bore it out and shoot 45-70 from it? I'll bet that's it. I'm hiding behind the barn with Seyfried when you and Casull show up.

    Unfortunately after my separation with my first wife and me not having any income,I had to sell it plus my Ruger New Model Super Blackhawk and Ruger MKII to pay bills. I wish I had all 3 of them back,they're all great guns.

    BigBlue,

    Welcome from Northern Illinois. Let us know what you think of the XD, and as others have said the 1911a1 is a fine weapon. You would enjoy it.
