    Talking Finally went out yesterday and bought it

    Well, made the 400 mi round trip yesterday to Cabela's in Wheeling yesterday and bought the XD-40. Nice package deal. For less than $450.00 you cannot beat the price. If I get a chance today I'll try to to shoot it. It's so freaking hot outside right now. So far I like the way it carry's. Same size as the 380 Bersa cept for the width, that I lost to the wife. Now, back to reading and disassembling..

    Another XD owner joins the (ever expanding) club

    XD's have to be the gun of the year IMO if apparent sales are anything to go by.

    Hope you get to shoot soon but yes today - assuming SW PA is about same heat as you have - is blistering!!

    I'm sure that you will love it. I have an XD-40sc and it's a great gun although now it's a safe queen as I carry a 1911. My wife tend to carry it every now and then. Enjoy!!

    I've been hearing nothing but good about these XDs. I'm going to have to try one.

    That Cabelas is nice, I was in there several weeks ago.

    I shot an XD9 Tactical a few months back...I DID NOT want to return the gun to its owner.....the XD45 is really singing its siren's song, but I'm trying to hold out for a Beretta Px4 in .45 ACP.

    Billie40, I am sure you'll love your new XD. I bought a XD45-5" tactical and so far it is my favorite handgun I've ever shot. It will bring you many years of happiness.
    If you didn't get the stainless slide, be sure to keep the blued slide well oiled, for I have heard of rust being a problem for some.
    Anyway, congrats and have fun.

    You folks keep talking about the HEAT... hmmmm... if you cant top 107, then you dont have any HEAT!! Now... humidity, yeah, you got me beat there, being probalby in the 80% range for you, but here it is 5%. They call it a "DRY HEAT", HA...

    As for the XD's... you'll love them. I like my XD40 Service and it shoots very well, even for me with my shakey hands..

    PAPACHUCK:
    The finish on the XD45 is different from te other calibers, suppose to be much tougher and corrosion resistant. Can't understand why SA doesn't use it on all of their XDs but they don't. Check out http://www.hs2000talk.com for more on that, those guys know just about everything there is to know about the XD line.

    Once you get past 85 deg it's hot. Then add the humidity it's even hotter. 90 deg with 90% humidity is really hot. I know that you guy's out there have really been getting hammered with the heat. But my gosh it's not even summer here yet in the Eastern Panhandle of WV.
