I used to have one with the Beretta PX4 storm I had, but sold it all. It was easy to use with good retension and a quick draw.Also @ryanator I think you mentioned a Blackhawk Serpa holster awhile back. Do you have one? Do you like it? Thinking about getting one for this. I wanted a little larger caliper for knockdown power in the woods. My Dad thought I should go 10mm, or higher but didn't want to get in a caliper that would be hard to find ammo for. It's funny the Blackhawk manufacturing plant is about 2 hours away from me.
They sell those pinky grip things. I have them on a few on mine, they really make a difference. I believe Pierce Grips makes them.She then got an extender magazine.
Yes, it will give you the best chance of penetration and keeping a straight trajectory after entering the target. You can also try flat nose which does the same, and underrated bullet. Underwood ammo makes these, but look at Buffalo Bore's website, they sell hot loads in flat nose and explain how they use them for bear country.Is this what you would recommend for bear country?
I read that they can, but why? Like I read on some other forums, it's just wear and tear on your gun. They say every once and awhile is ok but don't make a steady habit of it. I can see for a bullet that you are going to carry to actually have to use, but for target practice it doesn't makes sense to me unless you want to feel how they will handle.Can the XD's handle the +P loads?
