    Humm, Maybe it’s just me, but when I get insulted by a store, I find another store that is more accommodating to my needs.
    But enough of my negative thoughts…. Congratulations on a Great transaction.

    I don't know any of my local gun stores who would offer me top dollar for my trade-ins. They are a business and want to make as much $$ as possible on trade-ins.

    Congratulations on the purchase and I hope you enjoy the XD. I carry an XD 45 Compact and love it.

    It is the service model, 4" with the HC mags and it came with a rail mounted Safariland flashlight as well. 14 rounds of 45 ACP, I am still in awe.
    I just got back from the XD's first trip to the range. I am a huge fan of this pistol! I shot very well with it, no flaws in feeding and no FTEs. I shot the first couple of mags with just 230g FMJ and then tried 10 rounds of gold dots. Flawless! I do see what others have said about the sights, with regards to the front blade not filling up the notch but this is definitely not a deal breaker. I love it and feel like I made a fantastic deal yesterday. The flashlight is a great added extra bonus, it is extremely convenient to use, bright and will be a welcomed addition in the roll of home defense. Over all I am totally pleased with the deal. I would like suggestions for a comfortable cc holster for this weapon as it is my new best friend and will go everywhere (possible) with me.

    Well, it was Adventure Outdoors and considering the trouble Michael Bloomburg is giving them I want to spend my money there, besides, like someone else said earlier "they are just trying to maximise profit" and I can't blame them. They are NOT hard up for business, that place was crowded and people weren't just looking either. It took me about 2 hours to purchase the XD and I didn't need a background check. It was just that busy!

    For my XD9 Service (similar size) I wanted IWB and I tried the CTAC and hated it. I tried a VM2 and it was great, but didn't offer enough cant to tuck the butt of the gun into my back. I finally settled on a Brommeland MC5 that I LOVE. Its a bit pricey at $150+, but a really nice rig.

    I'm on a H.B.E. Specialty LeatherWorks kick right now as his work is awesome, around $100, and very customizable. Go with the COM3, you won't be disappointed.

    I carry my XD45acp in a CompTac Minotaur and love it. It is very comfortable for me, however, I have yet to try many other holsters. There may be others more comfortable but I am not unhappy with my C-Tac M-Tac one bit.

    I carry my XD 9 Service in a UBG Canute. A great leather holster for around $ 70.

    I could not get past about 5 posts. WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? Are we talking about Communist Russia? Nazi Germany? The free nation I live in I can sell my property to anyone at anytime anywhere I damn well please. That fascist and socialists have not yet taken over despite of what they may think.

    If you are aware of laws that control the sale of private property in your state please post them. I do not believe there are any. Not even in the socialist states of Illinois and California Otherwise, lets not support the anti self defense fanatics that would disarm us all. Lets not do the dirty work for the hysterical anti self defense fanatics by spreading their ignorant malicious, lies and propaganda,. We are not fear driven morons here, that live by sky is falling myths. We live in the real world, by laws not lies myths and propaganda spread by the bed wetters.

    Most all of my guns have been bought face to face with no state record of them. That is how I prefer to buy my guns. You do as you wish but do not use misinformation, ignorance or lies to manipulate someone into arming themselves solely with state sanctioned registered outlets. That is not said to disparage any gunshops or outlets. They provide a great service to use all

    That said congrats on your buy Froggy. Looks like you are living right. test than load up with some 230 gr. Federal HST and you have a rock solid reliable effective SD weapon unsurpassed by any handgun available IMO. My XD.45 has proven to be the best SD weapon I have had in 40 years of shooting bar none. I have had an do have prettier guns even more accurate guns but none are better more reliable proven concealable self defense weapons. An added plus is that this is the only compact .45 I have ever had that is fun to shoot. If I may what did you give for your XD, you didnt say
    Abort the Obamanation not the Constitution

    Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family

    I believe both California and Rhode Island forbid FTF or private firearm sales (they must be run through and FFL). I want to say NJ likely has a similar law, but I haven't looked for it recently.

    Thanks Longrider! I feel the same way. I appreciate the post and am glad to see that there are indeed others who understand what is at stake these days especially with regards to the second amendment. I payed 549 for my XD it is the service model, 4" and as an added extra bonus (to me, I didn't want it when I thought it was and add on) I got a Safariland flashlight and rail mount in the box as well. they were just asking 519 for the tactical 5" but I wanted the shorter version and I feel pretty secure with this weapon so far. Flawless at its first outing to the range and of course 14 rounds of 45 ACP is reassuring to say the least. Thanks again for the post.

    Can you please post links to the relevant laws. That sounds insane even with Kalifornia's second generation nazi governor

    I'm a big fan of the XD's, and I've had my Bi-tone XD45/4" and XD9SC for several years without a FTF in either one of them... ever. It's hard not to like a pistol like that.

    I'll also note that the NRA Rifleman magazine did a big write-up on the XD's (again) this month in the Feb/09 issue.
    I think they liked it.
