New Shooter - Parkville

Hi folks. Wife and I got our HQLs a couple of months ago. Looking for our first handgun. We shot a Glock 19 last week. Very solid. But in reading and researching really like SA XD Mod 2 9mm 4". Problem is we can't find one to rent on a range. We'll get there.

Welcome to MDS.

For a first handgun have you considered a revolver? They can be a good choice to start with.

Welcome aboard!

I'm in the Timonium area.

Glock 19 is a FANTASTIC first gun. Not a fan of XD anything (grip safety and other issues).

Edit to add an article I wrote a year + ago:

Welcome from Hampstead. Not 100% sure but Continental Arms in Timonium has a decent size rental collection me thinks. Not too far from you also is Freedom Armory in Glen Rock, PA. I'd call each of them before going tho just to make sure. Good luck.

Welcome from Colorado! I lived by Harford and Taylor before I escaped to freedom three years ago. For me personally the Springfield is more comfortable, but I believe the Glock is more reliable (I have an XDs in 45 acp and a Glock 21). The Glock 17/19 magazine is used for a lot of other firearms, so that may be something to consider.

Welcome fellow Parkvillain! Not a lot of springfields for rent at many ranges around here, Continental probably has the most.

Thanks. We pulled the trigger, so to speak. Bought it last week. Haven't had time to get to the range yet. But dying to.
