    Not new to guns, but new to XD. Had to choose between a Glock 30 SF and a Springfield XD Compact. Glock was too big for my hand but just like Goldie Locks, the XM was just right. Took it to the range where I bought the gun and proceeded to put 50 rounds of 230 gr ball ammo through it. Not a hiccup. Seemed well sighted in out of the box. Speaking of which, those little surprises (mini holster and clips) were a nice surprise. Tried the mini Holster but I think I’m going to go with a Fobus that I used for a Taurus PT 745; Yes the XD fits the same holster as the Taurus. Saved about $50 bucks there.

    Welcome from West Tennessee.

    I think you will find your XD compares very favorably to your other handguns. It is not only well made and reliable, but it is well designed to comfortably put the front sight on the target time after time. My XD9 is probably my favorite handgun of many that I have owned, and the XD9 SC is a great carry piece.
