It's a long-standing Mongo tradition that after each long and arduous deployment, I buy myself a new firearm. My inclination is that I'm going to get the Springfield Armory XD. WRT pistols, I can shoot, but I'm not a shooter. However some paisans of mine that are true pistoleros highly endorse the XD.
But, I'm conflicted; I just read that Taurus has a fine new pistol out. You be the judge.
It's a Mongo rule: all good things come from Brazil.
