I call 9mm

I picked up my new gun today (the Springfield XDM-9) and it's awesome. I haven't actually fired it yet (we're going to the range on Sunday), but I have some dry-fire bullets (plastic bullets that don't shoot) so I was at least able to play with it a bit. This gun came with a plastic belt clip holster, so of course I tried it on. Ridiculous. That gun looks enormous on my waist! It really is amazing how well it fits my hand, though. I'm looking forward to shooting it :)

::whistles:: Damn, that thing looks huge in your hands. Is it just the foreground perspective, or is it about the size of your whole head?

It looks totally sweet, tho.

I think it is about as tall as my head, but the perspective of the photo is definitely exaggerating it. That's no exaggeration in my hand, though. Now you can see the dilemma I've always had in finding guns I can grip well.

LOL - Yeah, I think that's me all right.

How freaky is this: When I clicked the link to tvtropes there was a banner add for some firearms training place on the left side with a picture of a Springfield.

Shame on you, Roxy. Do not put your finger on the trigger until your gun is aligned on the target.

You're making me jealous and your dreadful gun-handling is just rubbing it in.

What you can't see in that picture is that I had a target taped to the ceiling ;)

You can set your concerns aside. I know better than to put my finger on the trigger unless I'm intending to shoot it. I did that for the purpose of the photo to show how well it fit my small hand.

Somebody had to complain Roxy.

And you're making me bitter-and-twisted with jealousy. Well... more bitter-and-twisted, I had a considerable head-start as it was.

Then my master plan has succeeded.
