    Springfield XD

    Is it me or has Springfield XD lost its popularity? I rarely see an XD for sale or holsters for it too. Maybe that is because it is such a good gun that everyone wants to keep all of their gear.

    I wouldn't sell mine for 3 times what it's worth. It was my first handgun, and my favorite still. 100% reliable and holds 13+1 of 45ACP.

    I wouldn't sell my XD45... Are you talking about used guns and holsters? I agree with some of the other posters... no one's selling them...

    I'd like to find some stats on handgun sells by manufacturer. Talking to a few shops they're still in high demand...especially the XDsc. Go to galleryofguns.com and you see that the greater majority of their models are out of stock. I know I'll never give up my XD9sc.

    Why would we sell our XD's?? But yea I don't think they are that mainstream yet.
    When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.
    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

    I have an XD45. It's my bowling pin gun. My sources tell me the XD M Factor is selling well.

    Thumbs up

    Come to think of it, I don't believe I've seen an used XD for sale in a gun store. I've got a Tactical 9 that I had customized and it will not be sold. Others have been, but not my favorite competition/range gun.
    May we never forget those in uniform who protect us night and day in lands far away. And those in all wars who paid the supreme sacrifice in defense of our country. May God Bless our Troops and First Responders.

    According to USPSA useage stats--the bellweather of the civillian market--yes.

    In USPSA Production, XD lost ground to both M&P (bigtime) and GLOCK. This is not to say ANYTHING about the model, only about what was used at the USPSA nationals as reported in "Front Sight".

    XD has never really had a presence in other Divisions, so no decline or gain there either.

    In past years, this useage study has been an excellent barometer on the civillian market!

    Wasnt my first gun, but it is my favorite. I would be homeless before i would sell my XD45, and even then i may not sell it.

    I have one as well. XD-45 4". I was at my local gun shop last week and saw a nice Kimber. I have always wanted a Kimber just never ran across the right deal yet. I asked the store owner what he'd give me on trade for my XD on that Kimber...Told me flat out "Keep the XD", save your money and add the Kimber to your collection....

    I know that I wouldn't sell mine, FWIW.
