    New Arrival!

    Springfield Armory XD 9 4"

    $535 Out The Door; I know it's probably a bit spendy, but it was a small town gunshop and I prefer to support them over the Mega stores! I like it!
    There isn't an indoor range within 100 miles and its still bitter cold in North Dakota, so I've only put about 2 mags down it and I couldn't be happier!

    Congrats. That's a great gun... I own it's bigger cousin in .45ACP. And good on you for supporting your local business. I wish everyone would do the same...

    congrats! To make you feel better that is probably about the usual price that I see around here.

    I got the same one. Great Gun, never a problem. The price is good. I paid $520 out the door two years ago. Enjoy.

    I have two XD pistols. The Service model 4" and the 3" sub-compact. Both 9-mm and great pistols. They shoot and shoot without a problem. The price is in the same range I payed. I also support the local gun store. Happy shooting.

    Ok, I feel better, I was thinking that I had over paid about $60-80; not that it would have changed my opinion of the gun. Smoothest firing gun I have ever shot!

    I love the XD, if that was what I decided to get I probably would have supported my local shop. Unfortunately now that I am sold on the USP their USP's are about $900+ and I'm looking at just over $600 right now online .

    XD is a close second though. I'm thinking a XD in .45 might be in my future.

    535 out the door is an absolutley fair price. They are going for 620 at cabellas before tax and what not. Even on the internet, after you paid FFL, shipping and processing you would have spent more than 535. Good buy.

    I have the same firearm, and the 45acp also...they are very nice, and I have never had any problems with them. I even use the 9mm on occassion when teaching ccw and one of the student has a firearm failure....many of bought one.
    I am guessing this will replace the ruger on the carry list?
