    My G30 has never malfunctioned, and is at near the top of my daily carry list (along with the G23). Had a Taurus 945, no problems, now Rhome owns it (part of a trade).

    Congratulations, PAPACHUCK. The XD has been well received and you should have a lot of fun with it. I don't have one, but several members do and they all give good reports.

    I still don't get it. Why is that a problem?

    And no, that's not why he shot himself. He shot himself becasus (1)he did verify his weapon was unloaded and (2) he decided to pull the trigger (for some unknown reason) while it wasn't pointed in a safe direction. Things that will get you in trouble with any handgun.

    Let's not forget the US Marshal that did the same thing with a Glock 30(ouch, 45acp to the hand)http://www.thegunzone.com/nd.html.

    I just realized that I said "it wasn't pointed in a unsafe direction". It should have been "it wasn't pointed in a safe direction".
