    Ok Billie40... know what you mean there about the heat + humidity... at least here in the desert, we dont have "5 shirts a day" syndrome!! Here, whatever sweat does produce, is quickly dried by the low humidity, which sometimes I think is worse than being sweaty, muchless "smelly".

    Problem here is that is is so dry, that your nostrils dry up, and then you get nosebleeds or whatever. Darn "buggers" are so dry, that they feel like rocks, har...

    Have a good day,

    congrats on the new gun Billie40, you'll probably love it! Not many bad things to read about XD's. I picked up an XD .45 acp tactical a few weeks ago and so far it's all they say it is, very nice gun!

    Congrats on the new iron. I have an XD40sc and love it. I had a Glock 22, but it was hard for me to shoot well. Then, a buddy got an XD40sc and I got to shoot it side by side with my G22. I went straight to the toy box and traded that G22 away for the XD. Even with the shorter bbl, I shoot it much better. Heck, I shoot it better than I do my 1911.

    Enjoy. Oh...I have a little over 1000 rds through mine.

    Congrats! I bought the XD 45 5 weeks ago, and absolutely love it!. I was a huge Glock fan, but the XD smokes "em. Enjoy the gun.

    And NVJohn- It's 107 in mid June. I can't wait to see what we get in August! It got to 115 my 1st July 4th, in 1991. My girlfriend at the time took me the the Green Valley Country Club to swim. I tried sunbathing, but with my body fat level. I was afrad I'd start a grease fire.
