guns guns guns but which one??
 
Looking to pick up a new toy... got it down to 3. XD-S 45mm, CZ P-07 9mm, and the Ruger SR9 or 9c. What should I go with and why. Looking to spend no more than $550ish Thanks for the help MCB

Now looking at the sig sauer P250 sub compact and full size... thoughts?

the xds is 45 caliber, not mm. these are 3 different guns used for different purposes. what are you wanting the gun for?

XD-S 45mm Subcompact Pistol - Photo Gallery | Springfield Armory USA

sorry I went with that that says 45mm? but I am looking to buy my first pistol. Only ever owned a 12g shot gun before. I will be looking to get my CWP and plan to carry my pistol on me.

Mmmm... 45 MM hand cannons! :)

Unfortunately, I have only handled the XD. Considering the weight, the recoil is surprisingly light. I have never been one for plastic firearms, but I was impressed.

Sorry I can help you with the other two.

the specs page say .45 acp, so it's probably in caliber and the website guy didn't know about it.

Had a SR9 when they first came out. Can't say enough how awesome this gun was. The main thing I like about it, was its 1911 like slim grip...even for a double stack. I put 4000 rounds through it before I have my first stove top and that was with some very cheap crappy ammo. This was my primary CC gun. I still kick myself in the *** for selling it. I bought mine NEW for $325 now they go for a bit higher than that. My wife loved it. Another lovely feature is the ability to shoot any type of ammo (something you can't do with every gun). I would shoot +P+ ammo constantly. Ruger customer service is one of the best also.

My vote to CZ and Ruger in particular as manufacturers... their innovation, refinement, and reliable functionality are second to none. Also their prices are often the best. Ergonomic refinement and performance is particularly apparent in CZ's offerings.

45mm is definitely a typo lol

For reference, these grenades being loaded into the magazine of a launcher are 40mm, which is 5mm SMALLER in diameter than a "45 mm".
