    Hello all, I have frequented these boards for many years and have found a lot useful information. Seeing as I just purchased my first handgun, XDm .45 Black, I found it fitting that I should join the community! Proud to own an XD/M

    Thanks! I have a question. Does anyone know how i would change my username? It seems rather bland... lol Also, My XDm has yet to be deflowered, i'm taking her to the range on saturday. Is there anything i should do before i have a range session? She sits exactly as a brand new gun would come, no cleaning/oiling etc.

    First off... Congrats on your purchase and welcome to XDTalk!

    Im not sure if you can still change your username after you register it.

    Your brand new gun will have some lube/ oil on it from the factory. I remember mine was really oily to touch on the slide due to surface grease. They apply a generous amount for corrosion protection. You can always do a quick field strip of the weapon and remove any excess lube/ oil from it.
