    GET OFF MY LAWN!
    I was out shopping (well, looking) for niece and nephew today, and after finding nothing, I stopped by the local gunshop to see what they had. I was again handling a Glock sub compact but as usual, the feeling of the grip angle just didn't feel right.

    So as I was getting ready to leave, the owner whistles to me and brings out an XD compact 9mm. The original owner just bought it 2 months ago, put 20 rounds through it, but now that he's getting a divorce, he had to put it on consignment. 280 bucks and I now have the first of my 2 XDs on my want list.

    I bought an issue of Shooting Magazine today because it had some stuff about reloading and I wanted to read about Nosler's new rifle and the 325WSM. On the back cover is an XD ad, apparently if you buy a new XD they'll now give you a free holster and another hi-cap. :coold:

    since this one has a previous owner, I am out of luck for the freebies :) but considering I saved 200 bucks compared to a new one, I will be able to add trijicons and a pearce mag extension, a Don Hume IWB and probably toss on an XML M3 light.

    Divorces are a great source of cheap guns. Widows are too, but I feel more ethical torwards them.

    Nice find! 280 bones for a virtually new XD is a hell of a steal. :bigok:
