Last January I bought a SA XD-9 service model, black frame and slide. For some reason I was really holding off getting an XD, I had heard a lot of good things about them, but I just hadn't taken the next step. Well, since I bought it, the XD has taken it's place as my favorite pistol that I own! It ranks higher than my Glocks, and H&K USP's (well, the H&K USP 45 is a close second), but that's just me.
Anyway, I had a Kel-tec P3AT that was completely reliable, but it just wasn't quite for me. So I sold it, and decided to get my XD-9 a little brother.
This morning I picked up a brand new XD-9 sub-compact, black frame and slide, which a local shop was selling. To my suprise it came with the package that SA had offered earlier this year; the XD-gear holster, and three magazines (one of which is the 15 round mag with grip extension)! I was happy with the price ($430), compared to what I'd seen localy ($430-$450), but even happier when I found out it had the extra 15 round mag and cheap holster (which the other shops didn't have)!
I know it's not real exciting, but I'm happy and thought I would share!
