    I went today and picked up a Springfield XD40. The firearm was unloaded while I was taking pictures.

    that is the ugliest gun ever.

    a gun that is taller than it is long just does not appeal to me :dunno:

    fucked up proportions ... like a fat chick with A cup titties.

    yea, I looked at an XD first, but I'm glad I choose to buy my glock.

    regardless, welcome to the addiction :h5:

    Not putting your trigger finger inside the trigger guard unless you want to use your gun is a good habit to get into.

    Congrats on the gun. :h5:

    Rule #1: The gun is ALWAYS loaded. Nice gun but just remember, finger off the trigger until you are pointed in a safe direction and ready to shoot.

    I might not have noticed if the OP hadn't reassured us that it was unloaded.

    But I'm always looking for trigger discipline these days - especially at the range. :ugh:

    I saw that after I took the picture. I will admit, I was very disappointed at myself for having my finger on the trigger. That has to be the first time that has happened since I started shooting.

    I have an XD9SC, good buy. Too bad there aren't very many accessories that will fit the tiny rail except the Insight (?)

    Lol, you guys are getting on his ass about his finger on the trigger, but don't most of you guys also dry fire? Isn't that breaking the same rules because even if you know for sure its unloaded you still shouldn't have your finger on the trigger?

    Technically not if it's pointed in a safe direction your sights are aligned. Your sure of whats behind your target and you want to destroy your target.:squint:

    I use a plastic 'practice' barrel when I dry fire for my Glock when I'm indoors.
