    I am a Police Officer. I have been doing it for 31 years. It may not make me very popular on some sites, but that will be their problem.

    Thank you all. I am looking forward to chatting. Shooter I have a S&W SD40 as my duty weapon and an Iver Johnson 12ga Shotgun. My wife has a Taurus PT111 9mm and a SCCY Gen2 9mm. She is looking to trade her SCCY and get a XDS 9 or 45.

    I can vouch for the XD40 Service model, and my XD40SC (avatar pic) is my favorite. My XD(M) 3.8" Compact .40 is equally as good, although I'm still having a hard time adjusting to the more aggressive grip. But that's me, not the gun. There are plenty here who have no problem with it at all!

    So many people dislike the S&W SD 40, but I have never had an issue. I love my XDS 45 and am probably will go with 45 for my duty weapon. My wife does remind me that I may retire this year so that may be a factor.
