Re: First pistol purchase
Thanks for the great replies! To answer a few questions: I have not fired a lot of handguns. I have fired a few rounds from a .45 revolver and a ton of rounds from a .22. I know that they are different but I do have quite a bit of experience with long guns of various types. I did hold a fair number of pistols when I was shopping yesterday and the S&W were the ones that felt the best in my price range. It seems that there is a low opinion of the SD line on the forum but I really like the way it felt in my hand. The M&P I held was a .45 though, so that could explain why I liked the .40 better (I am smaller guy) If there are any S&W SD owners out there I would love to hear from you. Thanks again for the responses.
