    congrats. don't dry fire too much, or u'd break the striker retaining pin. i know from experience. mine was a bad case and it went back to springfield. 4weeks and counting. 200dry fire, and 500rounds did the pin in, and it locked up the gun. mine was a freak case, as i never heard anyone with slide locked up when they had a broken pin.

    dispite that, i still like the gun. 1 of the 2 plastic guns that really fits my hand, sig pro is the other. i shoot the pro better still though :bigthumb:

    Good choice, I love my XD40 and have over 900 rounds through it without a malfunction. I love my 1911 more though :love:

    they said it was fine in the manual. :(
    but none of my other guns ever broke a rollpin because of dry fire. now i know better. at least i smoothed out the trigger :p
    and yes it is i.

    i dryfire mine all the time. no problems. they encourage you to dry fire it so that the trigger becomes smoother.
