    Shot 85 rounds last night - gun performed great. I used one of my fingerless gloves. That definitely helps for practice shooting but I don't want to learn how to shoot differently. Looking forward to putting on the PRP rubber grips that I ordered last week. Hopefully they'll be here soon.

    I have one that's all black. I cleaned and lubed it. Verified the striker channel was clean and dry.

    I've dry fired it several hundred times. The trigger just keeps getting better.

    Rack the slide like you are trying to tear it off, let it slam forward when your fingers rip off the back of it, and it works just fine.

    I've worn gloves for practice. I've also shot it bare handed. Don't want to do that a lot, but I'd rather have the grips bare if I'm ever unfortunate enough to have to use it for a social occassion.

    I have it loaded with 160g COR-BON DPX which is allegedly optimized for short barreled guns. This qualifies!

    I've got the two-tone myself. Love this little pocket cannon! Like Fitch says, gotta be "rough" on the rack with her. First time at the range with mine, I realized this when the first round failed to chamber, getting hung up "nose up." That sucker was stuck good. I managed to clear it myself, shake off my embarrassment, and proceeded to shoot the first mag into a nice little silver dollar sized group at 7yds. Not too shabby for a micro pistol. The XDs is my second Springfield pistol, and definitely won't be my last.

    Inferno, let us know how you like the PRP grips. I haven't decided whether to get those or a Pachmayr rubber sleeve; but I definitely need something for my sweaty hands to keep a good purchase on the grip.

    Where did you buy them and how long ago was it? I can't find anyone that has the 7 rd mag in stock anywhere!

    Let the modding begin. Ordered some Trijicon HD Night Sights. Also ordered some PRP rubber grips. Now if I can just find a place that has the 7 rd mag in stock, I'd be set.

    I broke mine in this weekend. Think it's gonna be a great piece. I'll probably add some night sights also.

    On my list when things get back to normal. However, at my age, I may never see normal again!!!
