Since I enjoyed seeing the pics people posted so much before I got my XD - here's another of my little family:



Robinson Armament VEPR-k in 5.45x39mm [w/ custom handguard]
Springfield Armory XD-9 Service
Smith and Wesson Stealth Boot Knife [copied Overkill!]

Now I reeeeally want to get an OD SC in .40 with nightsights... just might have to be my summer purchase. Who knows - talk me out of it!

The VEPR is a dream to shoot!! So incredibly smooth. People call it "the cadillac of AKs". Very fitting. I think it's of even higher quality than the premium-priced milled reciever Arsenal rifles. My friend has one, and all though it's super sweet, the VEPR has a feeling of quality to it that is unsurpassed.
The barrel underneath the handguard gets incredibly thick, and the reciever was originally designed for the RPK machine gun. Basically it's a super stiff, heavy duty rifle made for sustained fire. I like the 5.45 caliber alot due to the low recoil and tumbling "poison bullet" ballistics. It would also be a superb choice for a 7.62 platform, since the handguard is exceptionally good at absorbing heat, and the weight of the rifle helps during rapid fire.

The handguard is not an HK piece however. It's the same one that Robinson puts on all VEPRs - I just modified it with some HK-esque vents and improved grip. Hail dremel!

Yep. "Boot knife" says it all.

This is how I typically carry it:



Only drawback is that unless you're wearing pretty baggy pants, you gotta use two hands to pull the pant leg up really quick to get to the knife.
It's definitely too big to carry comfortably in the wasitband.
