Finally got the .45c XD I've been searching for. Also got this sweet SOG Flash II folder that I watched the review for on (I think) NutnFancy. I absolutely love the XD , and really enjoy the knife its great as well.
Sorry was putting up pics but the first image hosting site I used was weird, they're up now.
I just shot one of these last Thursday. Nice firearm. I prefer Glocks, but nothing wrong with the XD.
Brother-in-law was in town and brought his Springfield XD 45 ACP Compact.
I prefer Glocks, as they feel easy to maintain and I shoot well with them. The XD is a close 2nd. A very nice firearm. The only thing I did not like (or at least I liked better about my Glock) was the sights.
I can see why the XD is giving Glock some competition with LE carry. The extra safety plus the firing pin indicator might give it a PR edge.

Don't forget about the ambi mag release, lots of lefty LE's dig it.

i got them both for a nice deal, a local knife dealer was going outta business and i picked up the SOG for 36$.
Following my trend with the LCP for carrying what some consider an underpowered firearm, I carry a SOG Blink every day.
Some may consider it underpowered, but I tried the Flash II but it was far too big for me to comfortably carry in an office environment, besides looking really scary.
I love the Blink especially with the reversible clip (for this lefty).

Nice firearm..XD .45's are GREAT pistols...love the features.
I like how the recoil spring sticks out a little up front. Might help prevent barrel problem / damage from a front impact. Was that the intention?
Congrats on the new gear.
I've had my SOG flash2 for about a year. Great knife!
