OK now I'm getting my XD 45.acp this week. Next weekend I'm going to take it out for the first time. Ive never owned a NIB gun before. What should the break in period be? And what are somethings NOT to do to it until its had a few hundred rounds through it?
Also I plan on getting an extra mag for it so i have 3 total. One for the gun, and two for the mag holder that comes with it. I probably wont carry the mag holder. But When i go shooting or camping or hiking here in Central Oregon, Ill probably carry it with both clips fully loaded. My question is. I notice that most ammo departments of gun shops offer "shot shells" Bullets that are tip filled with shotgun bird and snake bb's. Would firing those through the XD cause damage to the barrel? I'm not sure if the barrel of these are grooved to cause the bullet to spin or not but if they are it seems to me that the BB's would cause damage?
