first step in personal arsenal (xdm40)

Just purchased an XDm 40 at DFW Gun Range this past weekend(my first ever gun purchase). Its was about 700 after tax and I know I could have found a cheaper price but the guy spent several hours showing me all, and I mean ALL, the guns they had. Very patient for a gun newb like me and informative. I went to Bachman like everyone recommends but the old guy I talked to there was a a real dick face so I'll take my money elsewhere.

Anywho... whats the next recommended purchase for personal anti zombie arsenal; I'm thinking remm 870 or AR? Since I just dropped 700, the 12 ga is easier to swallow but its always easy to find. If Barack Hussain starts some liberal nazi gun banning bs AR will be the first get black listed. For everyone's info I'm not buying just outta fear, I'm just kinda getting interested in shooting, self defense and texas independence (oops) and want different and "useful" guns.

Shotgun would be the best choice for home defense, and 12ga is still cheap so you can afford to go shoot skeet or trap... AR would be cool, but its not practical for self defense and makes a better toy, ammunition is $$ right now...

Grats on the XD, I love my .45

shotgun ftw


more practical weapon all around, and you can go skeet shooting/hunting


Can you hunt with an AR? Yes, but fucking stupid to do with game animals IMO.

What he said...I love my XD also. Congrats.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.
