I got the Vances flyer today (ok, I viewed it online, but my dad got one) and they had the XD .45 compact and service on sale, depending on variation from $429.99 up to I think 529.99. I wanted the .45 from the start, its time I grow up and by a mans gun (I have only owned 9mm and smaller) so I went in and talked to them, they let me cancel the XD9SC that I had on lawaway without penalty and get the .45. I wanted the Black compact that they had, but it was their display model and the last one they had, they were more than willing to sell it to me, but I really did not want the display that everyone has had their hands on (the 9 was also the display). I opted for the service (I think it was service, 4in barrel) in the dark earth color that was brand new in box, never played with. It was 429.99. I cant wait to get it in the next couple weeks. Just thought I would update.
