    Just got another CC weapon!

    My EDC is a Springfield XD40c. I love it; it shoots great, is reliable, and I can acquire a very fast sight picture and alignment with it. The only downside is that the compact frame is not always easy to conceal, so I have been thinking about getting a subcompact.

    Combine that with how expensive ammo is getting and the 9mm platform is looking better and better. I started looking at an XD9sc to add to the repertoire, thinking that the shooting mechanics would be identical, it would be more concealable when I wear my tuckable IWB or my OWB, and it would be cheaper to shoot for practice.

    So I found a young guy who, like kids sometimes do, bought that very gun and then ran into problems paying his bills. He needed to sell his, which has had 600 rounds through it. It is in very good shape if a little dirty. He had two 10-round mags and one 16-round extended mag. And I took it off his hands for $350!

    My wife didn't even bat an eye when I said I wanted to buy it. I am married to the best wife ever.

    So new gun at my house! That makes three purchases this year. Maybe I should slow down a little, huh??

    Geat deal on an excellent gun. It is funny though, in my area I can find .40 S&W more easily than 9MM.

    MinistrMalic,

    Good choice! I have the XD-40SC and it has proven to be a great CC weapon, I have a custom Nylon Shoulder holster, serveral custom "Vest Pocket" holsters and soon a Galco IWB holster. I love the large size grip (fits my meathooks well)

    Only slow down when you find your purchases restricted by finances or imagination - congrats!

    Good price.

    Springfield is now selling 13-round mags that are the same size as the 10-round mags (both flush mount). Not saying you need them now, but just thought you might like to know for future reference.

    I went to Cabelas tonight looking for one. They had nothing unfortunately. I suppose I will have to turn to the intertubes...

    No pics yet. Soon though!

    If you can keep getting deals like that, then there's no reason to slow down!

    Congrats on the new gun. What a great deal. I've bought two new guns already this year, but don't think I want to slow down right this minute as I've got my eye on a couple of others...................
