    Currently looking for a new handgun for 3gun, couple of questions

    Okay, I know a lot of you are Glock fans, and I never have been. Now, that being said when I was at the gun store the other day I was looking at the new XDM 5.25, M&P Pro 5", and the Glock 17 in 3rd and 4th gen. I have an XD .40 sub compact and M&P .40C and love them both for slightly different reasons, but in handling the full size the XDM felt really cheap, and the Glock 17 3rd did not "fit" my hands. Oddly enough the 4th gen felt great, as did the M&P pro. So now I'm asking for your opinions and thoughts on both of these as for me its a bit of a toss up right now, and am going to try to go rent both next weekend at a local range to try them out.

    Well got to the range and tried 2 guns out, a G17 gen4 and an XDM 5.25...running them fast, the glock held tighter groups and felt better in my hands, but running slow for tight groups, the XDM had an advantage...but over all wasn't real impressed with either. Now need to try the M&P Pro, and thinking maybe a EAA Witness Stock I or II

    If you're a righty and don't mind a DA/SA trigger module, the Sig P series would be worth a good look, either a P226 or P220. As far as I'm concerned, Sigs are about as good as it gets in the right handed shooter ergonomics department.

    Then again, there's always my default recommendation...get a good 1911

    I like shooting Sigs, but the controls just don't fit my hand right....thinking another choice might be getting a 9mm conversion for my 10mm EAA Witness P, a firearm I shoot as much as possible already. Its still all up in the air, have a month or so to decide still.

    I have the M&P pro In 9mm. It's a great shooter. Several hundred rounds not one hiccup.

    I have found that H&K controls fit my hand the best. My personal favorite is the USP 45 and with the $200 rebate they have right now it puts them in most shooters budgets. If any are interested Hit me up at www.danddoutdoors.com

    Just got rid of my G17 9mm double stack. Keeping my G30 45acp as main. No real reason other than 9mm always felt kind of light. In my opinion.
    Hope you are having fun with your's

    Also Choose Best Pistol Light for your New Pistol It will help a lot at shooting range. it gives you better visibility in low light condition or the dark before and at the time of the shooting. So with gun light, you do not have to shoot blindly at your target.
