RANGE REPORT NEW XD9sc w/Pics!
FINALLY! I was able to make it out to the range last night to try out the new XD9sc.
First Impressions: WOW! IS THIS GUN IS FANTASTIC!!
I'd done alot of research on the XD's before I made the choice to buy one, and had the chance to shoot a few as well. Every gun had pros/cons with the XD being no exception. Stories are that - stories. Everybody can have issues. But IMHP....in round #1 - this gun dimissed all of them!
I put 300rnds of Winchester 115FMJ target ammo downrange at 8-10yrds with NOT ONE missfire - mag jam - stovepipe - NOTHING! ZERO! ZIP! The gun performed flawlessly and the sights were IMO - DEAD-ON. I bench tested about 50+ rounds in to see if I was imagining it. - Nope.
I've put over 1200+ rounds thru my Beretta 92FS since Oct07' and didn't have this much success/fun in overall consistant shot placement! The XD shoots better and feels better in my hand.
So everybody wants pics:

Target#6 (orange) was my "double tap" experiment.
(targets 3-5 were variations of grip/stance/one-handed and were really inconsistant so I left them out)
BOTTOM LINE - ME LIKES!!!!!
