I love Colt....I had a Commander...and loved it...but I traded for the extra 7 round I get from my new XD45acp....I have to say i love it..and it is as accurate as my Colt...but an extra 7 shots...is a great switch.
I have 3 XD's and two of them are the XD-45ACP's. They are the best shooting .45 I've ever shot. I keep one on the nightstand with the light/laser combo, and the other I shoot in IDPA each month. The other XD, the XD-40SC is the most comfortable gun in .40 that I've shot even though it is a sub compact! 8)
I like the new 45s, I have the service and the tac-I think the tac is going to become the night stand piece--still to see. I like the way both shoot and my wife likes shooting them but what surprised me was after she shot the XD 9--she took it in place of her KIMBER for a carry gun. Never did I think I would see that day come.
I hope my friends don't hear me but after having the XD's now for over a month and shooting them along with my glocks which have been my favorite guns for over 15 years. I now like the XD better. I still love my glocks but just found something better in their class. I thought this day would never happen.
