    My new XD

    Finally got it out of layaway (after 4 weeks, heh heh). Haven't got to shoot it yet but I can't wait! It is quite large for a carry piece but I do have a Cochise Defender IWB on order for it, so we'll see when it comes in if it's manageable.

    Nice, a 5" may be a bit big depending on your body type and size, but should be a nice shooter.

    Bigger the better! As long as concealable.

    Great - range report to follow (or else) !!

    A report is in order as soon as you get it to the range.

    Thumbs up Sweet..

    I recently purchased a XD 45 acp, 4 inch Service Model. I fired 150 rounds with it the same day I picked it up. I was so impressed with it I enrolled in the next available CCW permit class. I completed the class this past Saturday with a 100% on the range fire. The pistol shot a real a tight shot group. The instructor asked me to "wiggle the barrel around a little" as my rounds were impacting so close to one another he was having a rough time counting my shots. I have ordered a Glaco SkyOps tuckable holster and plan to carry the XD as my primary.

    I have a 9, had the .40's and just bought a .45ACP. They are great guns.
    Enjoy,
