    new gun bought today

    so i have been deliberating a smaller carry gun for a long time. i finally decided, after talking to many people and shooting various guns, on the sub-compact xd-9.

    i am very pleased with this decision as i had considered a couple of other used guns at the gun shop, but decided that i deserved "new". i don't think i will regret it either. i love the way the xd sub feels and carries. much lighter and smaller than the hk usp 45....

    thanks for reading! :)

    Congrats on the new XD9SC. I can't wait to pick up my Glock 26 tomorrow!

    Congrats on the XD, by all accounts they're great guns. Get that baby to the range and let us know how it shoots for you.

    +1, We're definitely going to need some pictures and a range report.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Good choice, I really enjoy my Glock 26 which is similar in size to your XD 9 subcompact. You will find it easier to carry than your H&K USP .45.
    God bless our troops!

    guilty as charged...will post pics this evening.

    i stated earlier that i looked at a couple of used guns at the gun shop. one was a s&w mp9 and a baby eagle 40. i liked both of those, but one of the considerations was obviously the warranty and extras that came with the xd for 100 more. the m&p was longer than i wanted and the baby eagle....well....damn it was heavy, but both in great shape.

    don't think i'll regret getting this sc.
