My first impressions were that it's the most comfortable pistol i've held. Maybe it's just my hand shape, but everything about it feels natural, alot like my 1911, but lighter. Only addition I want to make immediately is the Pearce extension. Nice and accurate at the 25 yards I tested today, 6oclock sight picture is pretty spot on. The OD is eye candy to me, and I can't wait to put a bunch more rounds through and start carrying it. Enough of that, here's some pics, even though you guys have probably seen enough XD's for a lifetime.
