I have been looking for a nice .40 S&W handgun for home defense use. I plan on use 135 or 150 grain jacketed hollowpoint. Was at the local brick and mortar gun shop the other day and they recommended the Springfield XD and XDm line.
The others they had that I was also interested in were the
Beretta Px4 Storm
Smith & Wesson M&P .40
Springfield EMP - based off the 1911
Springfield XD/m line
Walther PPS 40
Right now the EMP and the Walther are basically ruled out for me since it is limited to 9+1 and 7+1 respectively. Would like to have at least 14+1 so the Sprinfield XD is out but the XDm is still in along with the Beretta, glock, S&W. I am already sure the die hard Glock fans will vote for the 22. I am looking for input on the other handguns on the list. Does anyone here own one of them and are they reliable?
