    Just picked up my first pistol.

    I just got back from the gun store and picked up my first pistol. It is the Springfield Armory XDs. I am really excited that I was able to get this gun. I have been to 7 gun stores in the past 3 days and only seen 2. The rest had already been sold, so I bought this one. Let me know what y'all think.

    Congratulations, I recently made the move myself. Last week I purchased an XDm .40 comp. 5.25 stainless. What a pistol. Fresh out of the box, with my first target at the range, I shot a 93 while the second one was a 97.

    Just picked up my first pistol.

    It has been a great pistol. I had a couple problems with it my first outing but since then I have learned how to shoot it and it has been problem free.

    Just picked up my first pistol.

    Enjoy it - it's a great little pistol. Before you go to the range, clean it thoroughly and lubricate it as indicated in the owner's manual.

    Congrats, you should really love it a real dream to shoot for it's size. If you can get your hands on some lighter ammo it gets even better (185, 200 grain stuff) I worked up a 200 grain load with a 200 grain hornady C/T and it is great!!!!

    Congrats on buying a nice pistol. I've heard a lot of good about that model.

    I recently purchased a SA XD-45, and was happy to get it. It's my first SA and I hope it will serve me a very long time.

    Enjoy and be safe!!

    Have 4 XD's in inventory now, 2 - 4" in 9mm and .40, and 2 - sub compacts in 9mm and .40.

    All are flawless performers and fun to shoot. Don't regret buying any of them, and the XD40sc is my personal favorite.
