    I just ordered a Springfield Armory XD-45 Tacticool in OD Green.

    Can't wait until it gets here. :bowdown:



    I'll probably be paying $440 + tax for it.

    The Glock crew will welcome you with open arms in a few months when you realize the error of your ways.

    I've shot a ton of Glocks. I sell Glocks. I do not want a Glock.

    "What is wrong with this XD? It's nothing like that glock I used to shoot! For some strange reason the bullets I shoot are hitting where I point and it hasn't exploded in my hands even once!"

    with it to hang pictures in my office.

    my xd .45 shoots better than my 1200 dollar 1911
    for almost a 1/3 the price. I love them both but the XD is here to stay you glock people just need to accept it.

    I accept that the XD is here to stay. I also accept that mitsubishi still tries to sell econoboxes, and that daewoo makes electronics, and that dell sells computers.

    These companies are all here to "stay". Doesn't negate the fact that they're all bottom-of-the-barrel shit, tho.

    I am not sure I follow you, are you saying Springfield makes shit firearms?
    Are you also lumping glock into the shit firearm group?

    Because the Glock and the XD both fill a very specific niche in the firearms market place.

    They are entry level

    Both platforms are reliable, large calibur, and cheap.

    Thats it, ones made by glock the other spring field, there is no major difference in the weapons, XD has a Better grip angle ( MO)and a safety.


    Now if you are saying springfield as a company produces shit firearms on a whole im just going to go ahead and ignore you now because you are spewing shit.

    I personally think the bi-tone XDSC looks better than a glock

    You have to be careful doing that. There was a story on here a while back where a guy shot his wife trying to drill a hole using a gun.

    To my knowledge SA still imports the XD (HS2000). They have never actually made the pistol and never will.

    They just joined up with the Croation company to remarket the HS2000 under the XD name for import and sale in the US.

    I hope most of you are just giving him shit, because I'd be worried if you had that much interest in the purchase of a functional stranger.
