New guy here, been reading and learning from the veterans on this forum. I had contemplated buying a pistol/handgun for several months and visited this site and others for information. Recently purchased my first pistol, a Springfield XD Sub-Compact in 9mm. Purchased the "kit" from Springfield, handgun, 3 mags (one hi-cap), molded holster (OWB) and case with assorted accessories. I'm really enjoying the handgun and I'm now looking to taking a concealed carry class soon.
Stopped by a gun shop today to browse and found a used XD-.40 Sub-Compact with 3 mags, XML light and case for 429.00. Took the gun apart and everything looked clean inside, nothing unusual (to me, a novice) stood out. Slide felt tight. Outside was clean and free of scratches. Looked like a nice gun at what I thought was a very nice price. Anyone here care to comment? What should I look at on the XD that indicates wear/tear? Is this a good price or should I look at a 1911 someone will surely suggest? Do I just have gun lust in my heart?
This has been a great site for information and I'm glad I joined. Keep up the great discussions. Mods, if this is the wrong forum please move this thread.
