    What’s going on everyone! My name is Anthony Hugel and just joined yesterday. Excited to get up to date information on everything guns and Maryland. Currently the only pistol I have is a S&W SD40. Everyone hates on it from what I’m reading everywhere else but it’s been good to me and not a single jam or any issues.
    So I applied for my HGP ON July 27th and just received my accepted notification on August 4th, 2022. I seen some have been getting that nofication much sooner than I did but hoping to see a 30 day turnaround.

    Thanks again for the add! Looking forward to reading everyone’s post.

    Welcome. Don't let anyone poop on your gun if it is reliable and does what you require of it. A zip gun can kill you just as dead as an HK.

    Welcome !

    No shame in your SD , it catches grief for being the middle child in the S&W product line , but it's perfectly serviceable and sufficiently accurate as you know .

    OTOH , we'll rib you about it being a Fo-Tay .

    Because everyone knows that the 9mm is so much bigger, has more recoil, and is so much harder to control.


    Oh wait… :rolleyes:

    Welcome welcome! It's funny that not only do ppl bag on that specific pistol, many as you know, bag on the caliber as well! Looks like you've got the double whammy to get the overly sensitive folks in their feelings! All jokes aside, like others have stated, what works for you is best. If someone bags on you for that, they are simply projecting their negative emotions onto you. Happens even more so over the internet.

    Welcome! I'm newish myself. Spending a lot of time lurking. Waiting until I have something worth saying.
    As far as your gun or caliber - doesn't matter who poo-poos it as long as you're proficient with it and it gets the job done (whatever job you need it for.)

    Now it won't let me edit either ;(

    .40 is an old inside punchline around here , just like " 3% " , or " two weeks " .
