Been aiming at stuff haven't you? Have you put it down yet? LOL! Anytime anyone here gets a new pistol, it's a glorious day! Congrats....have fun, be safe. "Later this week"?

    I have one myself and it is flawless. Home protection pistol for me. Shoots great and easy to breakdown and clean.

    I love my XD-SC in 40. I had Trijicon night sights installed last week at my local gun shop for $115. I highly recommend a good IWB holster (I really enjoy my K&D Dakota Defender) and you'll really fall in love with it. Post your impressions at the range.

    I too carry a XD40SC in a Dakota Defender, an amazing combination. I will be having Trijicon's installed on it soon.

    LOL! I knew it. Well, best hopes for the weekend then, and your range trip! Next week will be here before you know it.
