    XD40 with light and accessories, $555 after taxes. :coolugh:

    What kind of ammo are you guys using? I'm thinking about keeping a mag with hollow points around the house... just in case. But just for screwing around at the range what do you suggest?

    I prefer Remington UMC, but I've been buying WWB lately, just because it's cheaper.

    Um, no. I recommend you change your carry ammo. The Hyrda Shock design is very old and is not nearly as effective as the newer designs. Federal has the Tactical line, now... But it's impossible to find locally. This forum has several threads with recommended manus/part#s for the major carry calibers.

    went to the Dark Side tho... prolly will never look back. I had the same gun except not bi-tone. Damn sure would've sold you mine for a whole lot less than $550


    I shot mainly WWB, Rem UMC, CCI, once I shot some wolf that I got for free (no complaints), and some reloaded shit

    Defense ammo I only put about 150 rounds of Speer Gold Dot down the tube.

    You're about 3 years too late for the XD-sackriding parties.

    After comparison-shooting a G23 yesterday, my wife decided she likes the XD better. (And she shoots it WAY better.) So we'll be going that route. :)

    +1 on the Speer gold dots, althought I really don't know much about then in 40s&w. People seem to be happy with the gold dot line.

    PS - Don't let the anti XD guys get you down. I think most people will agree that XDs and Glocks are both excellent. Most people with XDs love them.

    I don't love my XD, but after 10,000 rounds fired from it without a single
    issue of any type, I respect it and know it's going to work when needed, even
    if it isn't my favorite pistol that I own (that would be my Sig 226).

    I honestly loved my XD when I had it. 5K rounds down the tube and no problems. I also carried Speer Gold Dots. Never had a feed problem.

    The XD is a solid gun

    Defense ammo, Golden sabers ,dpx and gold dots can't go wrong with any of them and they are easy to find.
