Charon (Pronunciation: 'kar-&n, 'ker-, -än) is a son of Erebus who, in Greek mythology, ferries the souls of the dead over the Styx and is also the name of my new gun.

I had put a Springfield XD .40 caliber on layaway about a month ago and I finished up purchasing the gun on Sat. The gun is the four inch service model, all in black. 3 12 round mags and a paddle holster came along with the deal. I field stripped it, cleaned it this sat, and I plan on taking it for a test drive on Sunday afternoon. I also took apart one of the magazines and while putting it back together, and I almost put my eye out.

I choose the XD for several reasons. One was availability. A few of the other guns I wanted to test drive were not available to shoot. Secondly, I was able to shoot an example and I did love the way it shoot and the way it felt. Also, springfield's customer service is good from the information that i have read.

I took it to the range and it worked great. No problems feeding or ejecting. It could have had automatic targeting servos and a biomechanical interface so that the targeting recticle on my HUD was linked to the sights on my gun, but i will take what i can get.

Thanks for all the help and information that you provide.

My gun's name is "Plan B", to remind me that it's not option #1.

I wonder about people who name their guns. Keep seeing images of "Private Pyle" from "Full Metal Jacket". My XD's name is XD-9.

My guns have colorful names. My XD Sub is "the subby", and the SKS is the...."SKS". Hmmm...I guess I need to work on those names... :?

nug,

gun backwards.

Called my xd this before I broke all the rules and showed my then 5 y.o daughter the gun.

Last night she helped me clean it. Did a great job! Loves going to the range with me. She is my cheerleading squad and official loader of mags.

But, the more she becomes familiar to my nug, the more locks I will keep on it.
