Does it conceal well, or is the grip too wide?

It's a good gun, but I like 1911's better!
I've used 1911's for most of my life.
I had read many good things about the XD45,
so I thought I get one and see if they live-up to all the fuss.
Even though it's technically a "single-action" pistol,
the trigger-pull is pretty long compared to a 1911.
Also, I don't like the lack of Thumb Safety.
That makes me kind-of nervous.
If I wasn't already spoiled by the numerous 1911's I've
owned including my 2 current NightHawks,
then I keep my XD45.
But as it is, I plan to sell mine to a friend
whom I'm sure will appreciate it more than I would.
If your used to driving Porsche GT2's etc.
than even though a G35 my be a nice car for what it is,
it's NOT a Porsche GT2! HeeHee!

I own an XD-9. I just bought an XD-45 about two weeks ago and have went to the range twice and shot about 500 rounds through it with no problems. I love it. There customer service department is good to. I am from Texas and the price range I have seen is anywhere from $489-$530. I recomment to go and shoot one first. You robably won't be dissapointed.

I definitely agree on the customer service department, they're great!

It actually conceals pretty well and the grip is not too wide in my opinion. It is longer than I would like for concealment, but once the 45sc's come out that will be easy to fix. I can get an sc mag and have my service cut down to take the sc mags. Then I would have the smaller grip for concealment and I'm sure there will be spacers (like with the 40 and 9 sc) for the full size mags when desired.

I got to put a few magazines through Cubsmurf's XD .45 today at RangeUSA. All I can say is WOW!
I carry an XD .40sc and I dearly love it. And I figured I would like the XD .45 but I did not expect to like it as much as I do. I am going to start saving for my XD .45 right away.
By the way, I noticed it was very accurate too. I liked the feel of the gun in my hand as I expected to, the XD grip is just about perfect as far as I am concerned.
Now, if Springfield will just offer a subcompact version, as I am sure they will, I think I will have to buy one. But I do want the full sized one too.
Geez...I seem to have a serious case of G.A.S. (Gun Acquisition Syndrome)

I agree with you 100% on the grip. My 40sc went so I could get my 45xd, but when the 45sc comes out I may be tempted to selll my pt-145 and get one. Hard to beat that xd grip. Probably be well into next year before that happens though.

I, too, seem to have a bad case of G.A.S....and a lack of Bicarbonate of CASH!
Sooo many XD's, Glocks, 1911's... and others.... all calling my name!!!
