I just recently bought a XD9 and I love it. But now I'm ready for a gun with more fire power. I dont think I want a .45 just quite yet due to ammo and me being in college money is still an issue. I am getting my cpl here soon so I will be carrying. So basically I have narrowed it down to these two firearms. ( I am left handed and I know that bears huge in my decision) Thanks for any advice about these weapons!
