I'm a first-time gun owner. For my very first purchase, I bought a new Springfield XD 9mm Service Model. I bought it last weekend and today put 150 shots through it and I love it. Amazing feel and wonderful performance (albeit I have very limited experience).
Here's a gallery of images of the XD9 first day, never fired:
My 4" compact 45 is my first gun although I have a decent amount of experience with various guns. I LOVE THIS GUN!!! I WILL HAVE THIS GUN FOREVER!
This is my XD. There are many like it but this one is mine.... you know the rest.
Can you tell what the wife carries?
w/ 16rd mag and extended grip.
Can't wait till later today I will go to the range to test it before carry
Here is my XD-40 & some of it's handy work. The shots on the target were taken at 25ft.
Those are some DEADLY pictures folks!
Here's a questions.
I've got a Springfield XD .40 (tactical) that I love. It's the only handgun I've got but I'm glad I did my research before buying one and was able to get the one I wanted.
My question is: If you were to do one alteration to the gun - what would you do? Tritium Sights? Porting?
I've got a Viridian Green Sight coming this week for it and I'm pumped to see how it looks.
I would get one of these. After I put together an AR, that will be my next purchase.
It's a tad bit bulkier but it sure looks better! Can't wait to check it out this week.
Which make of AR are you going with? I bought a Rock River two weeks ago and they're mounting my Eotech on it Mon or Tues. Sure a lot of cool stuff out there that I'm wanting to get my paws on.
Lol, I am thinking of buying a upper and lower from G&R Tactical and trying to put it together myself....... At least that is my plan.
Hard to do a "do it yerself"?
I'm really new to this forum and it sounds like there are a lot of knowledgeable people on here who can do major projects on their firearms.
I'm still into bringing my stuff to the pros. I'd rather let them break them.
I'd have night sights on the SC. No other mods on carry gun as I feel it can be a liability to have a "tricked out" gun as your carry weapon. I'd never port a carry weapon either. Close quarters shooting and you've blinded yourself or gotten hit with hot gas and debris from your own gun.
I got the Springfield triger job on my XD45 Service.. It's awesome.
Zero over travel. Almost zero uptake. Short reset. Light, crisp pull...
Do it. You'll be happy.
My XD9SC is just awaiting a matching pair of Trijicons.
Picks of the XD45 mods coming.
You can see the over-travel stop installed on the trigger bar.
so how do ya'll like the subcompacts? I held one today and if felt next to nothing in my hand (granted the last gun I held was a glock 30) Do you use the extended mag when you carry it or do you use the flush mount?
I love my XD9SC for carry. I just got some new leather for it that I'm testing. It's a Dom Hume First Agent holster. So far so good. Rides a little higher nd tighter than my Galco Matrix, and it handles the X9SC and the XD45 Service fine!
Two guns, one carry holster.
Yes, I always carry with my Pearce grip ext, but with the size of my hands, it's darn near REQUIRED...
XD40 Service and XD9SC.
Todd is a proud new Papa... lol... 'bout time.
Lemmie post my last range visit with my XD9SC
The prettiest pictures are the results....
7M Semi-rapid fire... 10 rounds in 10-15 seconds...
