So when this site first started I signed up and began to drool all over the XD's. Then the department I worked for changed the policy to say agency issue guns only! Since that gun was a G17 I decided to pass on the XD and buy a G19 instead. That was many guns and many years ago. So now I am looking at getting an XD9 and decided to come back in glean some good info, experience and ideas. Seems like I have come to the right place. I am betting I am oldest member in the newbie section. Member No. 265!
