9mm ammo

Just purchased an XD9mm 4".

Any cheap places online to buy 9mm ammo?

Is dry firing a pistol bad for the gun? (required to break the gun down)

I've used both and they're good. Ammoman tend to be a bit cheaper, but you have to buy in bulk.

I was doing some research on dry firing and many people say it is older style guns that are prone to damage when dry firing. I also read that dry firing is a great way to get good trigger feel. Is this one of these debates like running motorcycle specific oil in a bike?

Dry firing a few times won't hurt the pistol but it won't aid in the break in process (not sure if that's what you meant in the first post). Buy a snap cap and you're set. I have one you can have if you need, remind me before a bike night.

If you just want cheap range ammunition, CCI Blazer 9mm from Natchez is the best you'll find.

http://www.natchezss.com/product.cfm...3509&src=tpCtg

$7.99/50 plus shipping

I've run Blazer for years, in all of my 9mm without any issues.

I've got an XD as well and dry firing shouldn't be an issue. There's no hammer, so there's no way to uncock the gun without pulling the trigger. And it is the only way to break down the gun for cleaning/maintainence.
