Yeah 1911s are nice but at the pricepoint I'm looking to spend and the size I want it doesn't really match up. Glocks are ugly but it'd be concealed 99% of the time so that doesn't mean anything. I just want one that works 100%.
A buddy of mine just got an XDs I'll see if I can meet up with him and at least see how it fits my hand if the shops I'm going to tomorrow dont have one.
As for ammo, I can still find some at the walmarts near me. Federal 230 FMJ bulk packs are ~$32, WWB are ~$40. 40sw prices are $30 for fed, $37 for WWB so its really not that big a difference.
