Roxy, you don't need another gun!
Well that's what I was thinking... until I held the Springfield XD 9 in my hand. Now I think I do need it. I'd never even given the Springfield a look because I was sure that extra palm grip safety would be a nuissance. Not so. You don't even know you're pressing it, and the trigger is a breeze to squeeze. It's just awesome.
Why do these things have to be so damn expensive? $650 for this baby. I can probably find it closer to $550 if I shop around, though. And hey, what do you know!, there just happens to be a gun show not too far from here this weekend :)
