    rustoleum :mamoru2:

    just kidding..

    strip it down and give it a light cleaning and oiling.. less is more.. as per the instruction manual. then shoot the hell out of it :bigthumb:

    I held one at a show today. I was suprised with how far the grip stuck out from the bottom of my hand.

    thats why its able to be so thin.. its longer. so the arrangement of the ammo isnt as wide

    it was in .45 too:) It might be better with the longer grip so I would have more to reach for.

    I assumed you were talking about the 45..

    both the xd45 and the g21 hold 13+1 rounds.. the xd45 has a longer and thinner grip, the g21 has a shorter and wider grip

    You have dainty hands. :)
    XD 45 fits my hand perfectly. My pinky is crowded on the XD9.

    I only picked up the .45 I never knew somebody with XL hands would have them be considered "dainty"
