I also have been reading since before I got my XD this past spring. Here is a pic of my Service .40 Bi-tone. Lighting and layout not so great, but had to post a pic. I've got just under 2000 rounds through it now, still happy with my purchase. This forum greatly assisted my decision. Thanks.
Corey, I am near Frederick. I shoot at Cresap Rifle Club. They are the only public range in Frederick County. Very reasonable $2/shooter, $1/target, $5/trip for me.
Old School, as far as I have been able to use it (dry fire draws), it is very nice, easy to draw when you want to; impossible for it to come loose by accident. Not too great for concealment, but would be good for open carry.
