    i guy i know has a subcompact xd in 9mm. i didnt much like how the grip safety blocks the slide from coming back if it's not depressed. theres a lot of times when looking over a pistol i dont have a shooting grip on the gun, but desire to rack the slide.

    im sure i could overlook this feature though. i think i'd like an xd full size in 9

    course i never met too many i didnt think i'd like

    Cool. Give us a range report. I have a co-worker who has the full-size XD in .40 S&W.

    For a quick update, no range report yet, but I did carry it the other day for the first time in the Desantis holster. It sits nice and high on the hip, very comfortable and a nice quick draw. So far I am very pleased with this gun, light, but not fragile feeling, i can feel that its there but not too much at all. It is quite the change from the 1911, but I do kinda miss the extra caliber in the .45

    off to the range next I hope

    Let me tell you from experience. You are going to love the gun. I have the same gun and to shoots great with very little recoil, and carries great to boot.

    $350? Where does one look for a steal like that. I guess gunshows just have high prices in the first place. I have my eyes out for an XD-40 subcompact too! I think you've sold me on the olive drab
