Last Stand on Earth
Bought one of these today since I don’t have a 9mm of my own. Springfield XD-E 9mm 3.3” Compact. Had been looking at a 9mm M&P Shield for a while but just not as enthused about the Shield as the XD lines. Problem has been that the Springfield 9mm XD-S lines always have the grip safety with a nub at the bottom. That nub bugs the heck out of me. I can’t see spending $400 on a gun I don’t care for. This one doesn’t have the grip safety and feels much heavier built than the S&W Shield. Feels good in the hand which is important to me as the way it shoots. I also like the look of a pistol with an external hammer. This one came with 1x 8rd mag and 1x 9rd mag (both pictured below). Might be a little bit before I can get to do an update on how it shoots and operates as I put this one on layaway.
