One thing youre gonna hafta watch out for is Beretta's have a VERY long double action when we fired double action only it killed my score for Air Force qualification, I still passed but barely.

You would have to de-cock the M-9 on every shot to fire it DA only, did they make you do that on a qual course?

15 yards we would fire 3, decock, holster, draw, fire 3, decock, holster, on a 12 round magazine
on a 3 round mag, fire 3, insert a 6 round magazine, slide forward, decock, holster, draw, fire, insert another 3 round slide forward decock, holster, draw, fire 6.

then back to a 12 repeat original procedure at 25 yards then insert a 6 round and practice firing out of a window

I see what your saying. I remember going from a 1911 to the M-9 and the first shot caused me some problems for a while. I still prefer single action, but have learned to shoot double action adequately.

Yea the main problem is the length of the Beretta double action caused me to start to anticipate the shot so I would start shaking, which has never happened to me when I shot single action pistols.

I learned a really effective drill for curing that accursed anticipation. While on the range a San Diego PD Officer noticed that i was anticipating each shot, in effect trying to push the pistol against the anticipated recoil. He asked for all my mags and reloaded them by randomly loading empty cases in with live ammo. When the hammer fell on an empty cartridge it was easy to see my barrel dip as i anticipated the shot. I had to learn the shoot not knowing whether the next round was live or spent, and keep the pistol level with an even squeeze of the trigger. It improved my shooting dramatically.

Some people, love Glocks and will shoot nothing else, and some people hate them. Personally i think there a fine pistol but i prefer the familiar feel of a 1911 type. Now the XD is excellent for the price; i recently went to the local gun store with a buddy of mine and thats what i had him buy for the money he wanted to spend. We put a couple hundred rounds through his new .45, and it shot very well for me. I may get one in the future.
