    A New Gun Today

    Just left Sportsman's Warehouse with a new XD-9. Got it home and field stripped it for a bit of lubrication and some patches through the bore. Won't be able to get to the range with it untill tomorrow. I've heard plenty of good about this gun but have never shot one. Would welcome comments from any members here who own or have owned this gun.

    You will love it. At ranges closer than 25 yards, try a 6 o'clock hold - it may help your accuracy. I have fed my XD everything from dirty reloads to premium self defense ammo, and it's never hiccuped once.

    I've got 5 at the moment 1XD tac 9MM, 2 40XD service, 1 XD 45acp service and last but not least a XD357Sig service all are BiTones and have not been able to make them malfunction yet. One of the 40's has 6000 plus rds thru it and the 9MM is getting close to that.

    Don't laugh, but I bought one in .45 GAP. A truly accurate and enjoyable gun. I have always had a soft spot for oddball and wimpy calibers.

    The XD guns are really nice guns.

    Thanks Stephen. Guess I'll know more when I go to the range. So far the gun to me just has so much more eye appeal than a Glock. Might be silly but it matters to me.
