    Ha Ha ... I found what Springfield decided to remove, and think it should be a sticky.

    What say you ... Anyone else think this story deserves a sticky ?

    Why is Austria OK but Croatia is not? They are about as close together as Minnesota is long.

    No, it's actually old news and I read it completely almost a year ago... It's also been posted before.

    I just didn't care for the opening text of the article is all. I did enjoy the read however, just never understood how Croatia = bad, Austria = good.

    I'd also recommend linking to the article for proper credit instead of posting it here, potential lawsuit waiting to happen.

    I think many have seen it ... It's a main factor that caused me to look at the XD, but ... Try finding it on the Internet, without going to archiveDOT org ;)

    That's why I posted it.

    And I'll not try to explain what the author's intent was, not will I point out that the article link is at the end of the article.

    Did you notice the last bit of text in the article? It has a link to the source in it.
    I laugh at your potential lawsuit waiting to happen comment.

    I like this one too:
    The Arsenal

    Just because a link is broken doesn't mean the source shouldn't be cited. As a photographer I take this stuff to heart. :) Laugh all you want, lawsuits have been filed and won for much less than this.

    Wow really are you suing someone? No? Ok give it up.

    This is also one of the reasons I got mine. Good read about a good gun! THANK YOU FOR THE WRITE UP AZXD YOU DID A GOOD JOB WITH THE TEST!

    Give what up? Just because you don't know the law doesn't mean you can break it.

    There is nothing incorrect about my statement, many forums have introduced rules in the sites terms of services to link to articles, posting the intro paragraph at most.

    Sorry for trying to help.

    Oh and your article used the pictures from article AZXD posted and I don't seem them citing it. Hope they don't get sued.

    LOL ... Read the text ;)
    That whole Arsenal thing is one big act of plagiarism.

    The thing is,
    The entire article I posted was once prominently displayed on Springfield Armory's website ... And they took it down.
    That's why I found it, and posted it.

    IMO,
    It's one of the best promotional pieces every written about the XD, and if someone really wants to know about durability, it's a great article to have people read.

    I agree, it actually pushed me over the hump from getting a Glock to getting my XDM.

    Sad the original is archived.
