Springfield XDm 9mm

I have shot this weapon a few times along side a Glock 19 9mm if I had to use a 9mm I would choose the Glock simply  because the Glock  feels more balanced to me.

L-R .44 mag, S&W .500 mag

One of the gentleman from my old scout troop use to talk about how the pistol he wanted was a Smith and Wesson .500 and when ever asked what he planned on using it for he would always say “Nothing, I like like big guns.”

I love big guns too and would love the chance to take this pistol out but at current prices for the .500 Magnum round ($1 per round) I think this is one gun that it will be while before I get to use to send some lead down range.
