    My first range report

    I finally decided after two weeks of having them, and managing some spare time, to take out my new weapons. First, my CZ 75B and my XD-40, both in .40 caliber. I must say right off the bat, the CZ I bought used, and the XD I bought NIB. I'll start off with the XD. It performed wonderfully and a little bit beyond my expectations. It's ease of use is very nice, take down time and cleaning was a snap. it is a smooth weapon, it out performed my CZ by far. Those are the positives I have to say about that weapon, now the negative, I really don't have many negative things to say about the XD except that I had 1 stove pipe jam out of 200 rounds I was shooting at or less than 1" groupings at 10 - 15ft. Wish I could say the same for the CZ, I've heard nothing but gleaming reviews of the CZ 75B in .40 S&W, This weapon fell short of the name I felt it had to live up to, and being used, I figured it would be better than the XD cause it's pass that break in period. I had about 5 stove pipes, and 3 double feed jams out of 200 rounds. This was severely disappointing. It is easy to use, the break down and cleaning time seemed to be a pain in the bottom. it has a little more "kick" than the XD and being a heavier all metal weapon I figured it would have less than the XD, it doesn't. My shot groupings were about 1" - 3" at 10-15ft. I think I'll stick to carrying the XD. and I'm not sure what I'll do with my CZ I was told it was a near competition weapon, who knows, maybe it's user error. But the XD performed beyond and CZ fell short.

    RATING: XD-40 a 9 out of 10
    CZ-75B a 6 out of 10

    On a side note, I decided to open carry my XD since it was range day, I went to the grocery store to get refreshments, the man behind the counter asked me what agency I was with, I told him, my own agency, he said "oh" I could see him thinking he started to ring me up, then he said, "what agency is that?" He seemed perturbed, I said "The agency of the 2nd amendment." (I felt like saying, "the do whatever I want agency", but that would make us all look bad.) He pretty much stopped saying anything after that, so I kept talking about how I was practicing our second amendment rights, he pretty much zoned me out, and gave me my receipt and told me to have a peaceful day.

    "The agency of the 2nd amendment." I like that. I'd probably answer with, "The agency of I decided to wear a really tight shirt today and I couldn't concealed carry under it so I just open carried instead. Isn't it a pretty holster???"

    In all honesty, I'd do the same and explain we have 2nd amendment rights, and OC rights, so there's nothing wrong with exercising them.

    Most people don't get it about the right to carry so it's kind of a freakish thing for most people to see. Case in point. I've lived in Colorado for over thirty years were open carry is legal and I've never seen it! I don't because I don't want to be labeled as some sort of kook. I have to take in to account the fact that I represent the company that I work for and the fact that I am the person that most people come in contact with when they do business with us. I will conceal carry when I'm legal, but I'm still waiting on that.

    Besides....Old men don't fight fair.....I don't want nobody to know it's there till I need it....Then it just might be the last thing they ever know

    Welcome to the XD Fan Club.

    I'm still looking for a $1000+ 1911, Sig, or anything... that shoots better than my XD45. I bought the XD for under $500, and added $230 in trigger work, sights, etc. all from SA, under lifetime warrantee.

    It is a 100% reliable ragged-hole-shooting-night-sighted-combat-ready gun, that shoots like a champ.
