  1. General Springfield XD/XD(M) Talk
    Hey all, So I've had my xd40 5" tactical for about 6 months and I love it. As a new gun owner who has done a decent amount of research here's my question: can you explain to me in simple terms why can I be convinced that it is "safe" to store or carry cocked and locked, and have faith that...

    Who has currently or previously had a USCCA membership? If you have it what level do you have and why? Like the idea of access to a network of attorneys but how good are these attorneys? Has anyone ever used one from USCCA? Kindly share your experiences good, bad and everything in-between...

    As per title, do you change any part of your EDC gun, like trigger job, or do you leave it as-is ? And why? thanks

    I've pocket carried my XDS a few times now, usually when I need to dress nice, and there's some pants I'm reluctant to wear because the pockets are too shallow. Being armed every day is my new years resolution and I've kept it up so far! I'm not worried about losing the firearm if I fell down...

    Hello All, As the title says, I just picked one up. With 200 plus a couple rounds through it, I love it! Before putting it into EDC rotation, I wanted to make sure I addressed any known reliability issues. . . I'm reading stuff about needing to pin the ejector. . . or is it exctractor or is...

    I wanted to install a wedge on my Mod.2's Scorpion holster so I decided I'd try out a simple modification. I bought the Flex Hardware Kit also from Stealthgear because I like having spare parts for my holsters, and used some of the extra hardware supplied. Extra parts needed for this mod: 1×...

    Does anyone concealed carry a XDM 9mm 4.5? I am looking into a concealed carry class, but am wondering if the XDM I have is to large to conceal. Any thoughts on good IWB holsters? Thanks

    Hi, all! I just passed my CCW exam, and am looking into carry weapons and holsters. I'm nearly set on going with the H&K VP9SK as my EDC choice. While browsing around I ran across a company called Skull Crush, and they make Kydex holsters lined with smooth leather. The holsters look really...

    First off, my apologies if this has been asked before. This is my first time posting here. I have a Springfield XD9 SC, and I just applied for my CCW (Should be here in a week or 2). I really prefer the extended mag for comfort and round capacity, but the compact mag is far easier to conceal...

    Hi folks, I'm looking at an XDM 3.8 for my EDC, coming from a Cajunized CZ P-01. I have a whole writeup where I compare the XDM to about 15 other pistols I got my hands on here: Help me choose a new CCW pistol! **UPDATE** • r/CCW It is a long read but will get you fully up to speed. TL;DR is...

    It's been almost a year since I started the process, but finally received my CCW in Placer county in California last Friday. Classroom work was last March, didn't get my range time in until June, my interview with the Sheriff was October 11th and finally got my CCW. Nothing is easy here in...
