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!

Take care,
Kory.

Sounds like a good deal to me. I'm likely to go the other way, however. To compliment my XD-9 Service, I'm thinking of a Tactical maybe in .45 GAP; or wait- a .40 S&W; no, another 9mm! What to do, what to do?

I'm already in the planning phase for my next pistol, which will be the XD40 tactical. I'm going to get the a 357sig barrel for it as well.

Congrats on your new pistol. Seems like it was a good day for XD9 sub sales. I got one too, for the same price. Dealer had sold 2 more right before I got to his store. Luckily I got his last one, now my bi-tone 9 4 inch has alittle brother. :D :D

I took the new XD9-SC to the range last night, for the first time.

Total I put 310 rounds through it. Mostly WWB, but also 80 rounds of Speer Gold Dot. No failures or malfunctions of anytype. I also used all my mags (even the ones for my Service XD9) and it didn't hicup once.

It was a little hard to group at first, all my shots were on the paper (8.5"X11")at 10 yards, but scattered quite a bit. Once the round count went up the groups started tightening up a lot. It deffinately grouped better with the Speer GD. It might have been a problem with the nut behind the trigger too (read operator getting used to new gun).

All in all, I need more practice with this one, but I am very happy with the results.

Now if anyone has any suggestions of a RH IWB leather holster, I'd love to hear what others like/don't like.
