    Title says it all. I'm a handgun noob and, since buying my first from a trusted friend, I have come to be pleasantly surprised with all the XD40's accolades around the net. I'm looking forward to learning all I can. Thanks in advance, once again. More than honorable mention: My first gun forum as well. :cool:
