What I ended up doing is walking off to side and pulling the trigger in the holster to release the striker (after pulling it out a bit to see the indicator) and then placing a mag in then racking the slide with it slightly out of the holster but not totally. I recently got a Kydex holster from uncle mikes that should work a little better since the holster I was using wasn't really for the XD.
I still don't quite get this I have been to sevral cold ranges.
So why even have a loaded mag before you get to the line?
You still can't chamber the round till you get to the line?
Just trying to understand the benifit of this hot condition 2?
With my 1911 I go to the line two mags in pouch and 1 in each rear pocket for Idpa and then the one goes in to chamber the first round then I switch two the other re holster and then shoot threw.
xd I go to line 4 mags loaded to ten one in pocket with 11 remove load and make ready chamber round reholster for the start signal
