    Been lurking here for a while and made a few posts but figured I should do a formal introduction.

    As the title says, from Tampa, Florida, spent 6 years in the Navy onboard the nuclear Submarine The USS Benjamin Franklin as a Fire Control Technician (took care of the computers for the control, targeting and launching of the nuclear missiles) from 1979 to 1985.

    Been interested in shooting ever since those early days but never had the money for anything nicer than a couple of Hi-Point pistols. They were fine for what they were and I still enjoy shooting them but recently decided to step it up and purchased the XD9sc for my primary carry weapon and at the end of this month I'm grabbing the XDM BiTone 5.25 in 9.

    Been enjoying the threads here and will probably be looking for advice on modifying the trigger on both guns as well as adding FO sites to the sc sometime here in the near future.

    Thanks for your service, and welcome to XDTalk. You will love that 5.25, I have one in that combo, Bi-tone/9mm.

    Hello and welcome to the forum from the west end of Rt 60. Thanks for your service.

    You are going to enjoy the 5.25 in 9mm- a great shooter. I love mine. Where do you plan on shooting?
