    The 2 Newest members of the family

    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.

    Gratz!

    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.

    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).

    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?
