    New EDC / OC Piecce

    Yesterday, Mary's Pistols in Tacoma lured me into a new early xmas present. I am a fan of XD's and own a few of them. This is my newest addition to the stable.

    The newly released XD(m) 3.8 in .45acp (subcompact). Taking it to the range tomorrow to get her broken in and then she will be by my side (literally).

    I have been thinking of getting an XD just for a good looking gun that will fit a serpa retention holster, since they havent made one for my PT 111 Millineum Pro.

    United States Pistol Shooting Association...

    I ordered Tru-Glo TFO's for it and my XD9sc. On my XD45 Service I had Trijicons installed, but those TFO's just glow so well during the day. At the last SOTM a buddy of mine had TFO's on his XD9sc, I still had regular sites on my XD9sc and Trij's on my XD45. I shot all say alternating guns and I was always faster on target and better placement with the TFO's...

    I love my XDm, good choice!

    XD != XDm

    The M gives it the Mega factor!

    Fantastic! I have shot Glocks too, and shoot them well. I just prefer some of the ergonomics with the XD's over the Glocks. If you ever find yourself in Olympia, open invite to throw some lead downrange with my XD's.

    Ill take a Sig any day, but I DO like the way XDs shoot. The ones I have shot seem very light on recoil, very well balanced.

    I'm not a fan of grip safety devices however, and their grip system is not yet designed to allow an integral CTC grip such as Sigs or M&Ps.

    USPSA is the governing body for the practical pistol competitions I do (and keep telling you guys that you should attend). They are great practice and loads of fun.

    Also I have an XD45 compact as my EDC and love it. There is quite a bit of recoil with the 10 round magazine, but with the 13 round extended mag it shoots like a dream.

    I'm with you when it comes to Sig's. There are others that shoot nice and look good but once you own a Sig or two that's usually it. No need to settle for anything less.

    Briehl, Where are you out of?

    I've always been a believer in the saying that my finger is my safety, that's why I prefer the grip safety on my XD. When I'm ready to fire so is my weapon

    I agree with that as well.

    I'm not to far from you if you'd like to go to the range and try my XD and get a feel for one

    Yea that would be awesome. My schedule sucks being a manager at a car dealership, but I always love the range. Went to Bens laons today to look at an XDM40 I think it is going to be my next purchase.

    Were you in the group today at Evergreen shooting steel in the pistol bay?

    Yes! That was me!

    Range report. The gun is AWESOME! Other than some ammo issues she ran flawlessly. A lot less recoil that anticipated too. I was very impressed and the trigger just kept getting better each time. By 100 rounds in I could double tap it easily. By 200, she was just a beauty to shoot.

    Can't wait for the TFO's to come in. I need to load up some more .45!
