    Hello from West Texas

    Hi all. Just joined the forum. Have been visiting for a couple of weeks and decided there was too much going on not to join in. I have been shooting for several years. Got into IDPA not too long ago and decided to give a SA XD9 service a try. I can already tell most of yall use 1911, but for the $, reliability, and fit for me I chose the XD. been a SA fan forever, so that helps. I shot a ruger P-89 before the XD. Thanks and look forward to visiting with you all.

    Welcome to the forum tex. Glad to have you with us.

    Tho I'm not one of them, there are a lot of SA-XD fans here.

    XD's

    Welcome from another Texan. Your SA XD is a good choice. My son shoots the XD in .40. Dear old Dad is so old that the 1911 is just what we had in the old days. I have shot his & like it, just to old to learn new muscle training. Welcome.
