    I love how this thing shoots :) :gome:

    My next purchase will probably be the xd-9 sub. I shot very well with it, and so did my wife.

    Also, my XD-40 came with an ordering form for Pre-ban Hi-cap mags for the 9mm. I wonder if the 40 will fit into the 17rd 9mm mags, and how many it will hold. I'm probably going to order a few. wish me luck. :bigthumb:

    9mm will fit into a .40 mag, but I don't think it will work the other way around.

    Be interesting to see what happens with the 17rd mags there. Let us know if the .40's fit if you get one.

    Definitely shows Springfield's heart is in the right place. :hs:

    With all of this buzz about the XD series, I might just have to try one out for myself... I've heard nothing but good things.

    the HS2000 has been around for a while. are they just using old un-neutered HS2000 mags?

    I think the XD's are a nice addition to anyones collection, the XD-9 shoots so smoothly and I could handle the recoil very well. This is my only gun (for now) so I went with the 40. I dont know how you feel about your HK but the XD was the most FUN gun at the range to shoot. Well to me. I really did want the USPc or sig 239 because of their reliabilty, but they were both just a bit more than i wanted to spend. But i couldnt be happier with my purchase, and from what i can tell, its a pretty solid gun.



    CrudeGT: the hi-caps are going for 34 a piece with a 5 mag limit.

    Sig has some good deals going on right now. I was able to pick up a P239 for less than what XD's are going for.

    Yeah, I have a XD subcompact and I like it a lot. It is accurate and I haven't had any malfunctions. It is thicker in the grip compared to the 239 but both fit my hand pretty good. Both pretty good guns.

    Did my first range session today with the XD. Put about 350 rounds total, of Winchester White, Speer and a few Federal JHP (just to try it ;) ). No Jams or FTE's. I shot about a 4 inch grouping on average at 50 feet. Hopefully I'll get better with a bit more practice. :)
