    very cool,

    I have been lookin for a reliable and accurate range gun so
    I figured I would look for info on the web. I googled handgun
    forums and found this site. (Boy am I glad I did!!)

    Torn between the M&P and the XD. I demo'd both guns(and glock)
    and shot both OK. All 3 are very nice guns but I decided on the XD
    because of Springfields customer service, and it just felt good in my hand.

    These photos of an XD lookin good after 10,000 rds make me feel I
    made the right choice. I cant wait I pick up my all black XD9 service
    model tommorow.

    Thanks Propellerhead,

    Snoop

    Got a real warm-fuzzy tonight... I only have maybe 700-800 through my XD45, and less than 100 through the XD9SC...

    I have LOTS of work to do...

    Ho-hum off to the range... toil and sweat... another hundred...

    Can somebody help me out? Two XDs, and the range won't let me shoot one in each hand... Got a few years to go!

    Jeff

    seemed

    propellerheadd: Sir; a most interesting and well thought out presentation.
    Sir; pictures are normally okay. Your Pictures are great. Detailed yahoo.
    XD'ers need you in the adds.
    10,000 rounds and not one mention of your friend. Did he try and keep up with you?

    Thanks:

    I'm coming close to the 8000 mark on my XD45acp service. I clean it all the time but have not seen anything I would replace yet. The last 3000 rounds have been reloads and I make those hot ones. Now I have to learn how to shoot it like you do.

    I had a XD40 once that I put 15000 through and sold it to some sucker on the side of a highway. I wonder if it's still working?

    Hahahha! Yes, that XD40sc is still going. It's still my carry pistol. I shot it at an IDPA match last Thursday using my carry holster too. It felt good to give it a dry run.

    Nice

    Great pics. Is the ring of wear around the outside of the barrel muzzle normal for an autoloader? I'm starting to get one already on my new pistol with only 170 rounds through it so far. I keep it oiled right there.

    In that particular picture it looks like top right of the chamber entry is chipped (where two prongs protrude, right one is shorter). I have a similiar "issue" (I put that issue in quotes as I do not know if this is normal or not) with my XD which I'm going to contact springfield about tomorrow.

    I really appreciate all of the pics and info, this is making my decisions a little easier. I am in the market for either a XP or M&P...still undecided. I will go and have a play day soon at my local range. Hopefully I will be as satisified with the XP as you are. Thanks, BH

    I'd be nervous if i says "XP" on the side though... The "XD" is the real thing...

    XP is likely a Chinese knock-off...

    (Here come the Croatian knock-off jokes...)

    hahahah

    Sorry, couldn't resist!
