    Hi guys,

    Newbie here...have owned HK, SIG226, Colt, etc but bought my first XD, a .45 Tactical that dropped on consignment at my LGS...an hour before I stopped in for bad coffee and good conversation. Had looked at a Glock 23 .40...and a friend let me shoot his XD .40 and a convert was born! Great feel and nature point of aim...so, when my new toy got my attention as I swung by the counter to see what's new, it was an easy decision. Now, I will take some pics to share...but she is a bi-tone beauty...blued slide with FDE lower. Night sites and two 13 round mags round her out...all for a staggering $450. And did I say it had never been fire by the original owner..."it was too much gun",he told the guys at the shop. Ya know...sometimes even a blind squirrel finds a acorn now and then.

    Glad to be here and eager to learn...
    Semper Fi,
    Patrick
