New toy is in the house
I just got back from my local shop and came home with a nice xdsc package. I traded my skyy 9mm in and got a pretty good deal. I liked the skyy but a number of people were having issues with frame cracking and firing pins breaking. I here skyy is beefing them up but there was something there that I didnt feel comfy with carrying this gun. And sprinfield puts together a nice xd package. Ill probably get out next week and put it through its paces and let everyone know how it does. In the mean time be safe everyone and have agreat day.
Sixgun Btw its the 9mm version

Fantastic! Great reports on the XD's - I may come over to the "Dark Side" yet. Keep us posted on how it shoots, etc.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

Get your self some 40 cal mags and get 13 rounds in the compact mag with no adjustments to the mag.
I've been using 2 40 cal mags with mine since i got it with no problems

my girlfriend loves her's and can shoot the hell out of that little gun. she constantly gets 4-5" groups @ 25'. I like the gun when I shoot it with the grip extensions on the fullsize magazines. Still prefer my commander though.

My girlfriend likes her XD, but I prefer something with a safety ala 1911.

Good choice. Love my XD9 Service. Great shooting gun, easy to handle, easy to maintain, easy to carry. I'm sure you'll find that you picked up a nice little pistol there!
