    My friend has one in .40, and the double-stack grip is huge on it. Must really be humongous on the .45! I like the gun, know it's a good gun, but I just like the feel of 1911's. Still I'd much rather have that than a Glock. :D

    Yeah, same grip angle as a 1911, so no muscle memory confusion. I shot a XD in 9mm on steel, really liked it. If they're announcing it now, I might actually have some money in a year when they get on the shelves.

    I don't mind the grip size on my double stack 1911, so this shouldn't be much worse:D

    Nice.

    I don't "mind" the double stack grip on my Glock, but I love the single stack grip on my 1911.

    Yeah, I do too, but I still like the single stack better.

    My hands are plenty big enough, but I've just shot so much with 1911's that the double stack feels weird. If I ever get a FN five-seven though I'll get used to it with that 20 shot mag. :)

    He's a 9mm man. He likes the "little" cartridges and the plastic guns......... [peep]

    9mm and .45 equally really. I have more practice with 9mm and like the higher capacity but also like the stopping power of the 45. To side step the argument, I have invested in both

    I have to admit I really like the "small" .357 Sig. I might have to buy either a Sig 226 or 229 in it. Just to keep the Glock company of course........ ;)

    I haven't got to shoot .357sig yet, but I want to:) seems like a sweet round!

    It really is. :) The only problem is, the military does not use the .357, and it is not a (NATO) round, so I won't be using it.
