    Lightbulb 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!
    My XD 45 came with 2 10 round magazines, rather than the 13 round advertised. Since Nevada doesn't ban high capacity magazines, I was disappointed. The gun shop told me that it was all they could get. I contacted customer service, and they were happy to exchange them for the 13 round mags. I had even used them at the range.

    I bought a XD45 Tactical in March of this year. It is closing in on 4000 round's with out a bit of trouble. I did have 2 or 3 FTE's during the first 200 round's but after it got broke in it work's perfectly.

    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.
