[TASF said:Overkill]Tactical for concealed carry? That's the biggest (longest) XD.

5" guns don't hide well strapped to your gut. The larger the gun, the more you're probably going to have to go the IWB route. Before it's all said and done, you'll end up through 5 different guns and 80 different holsters anyways. I started with a AMT .380 Backup......went to a 4" 686 (that lasted about 3 days).....went to a G26.....then to a G29....then a G30.....then a Kimber Ultra Carry.......then back to the G30....and now a 4" XD40 but still have the G30 too.Uncle Paul said:
Exactly the course I was considering! I was going to try for Handgun 1,2,3. I might have to wait for fall due to $$$. What did you think of it? Was it worth the $$$. There is another place up here I was considering, SimTrainer. I still think TDI is a better bet.aiformula said:I fired ~1750 rds over a 3 day training at TDI in ohio and the only thing that was tired was the trigger finger and my smiling muscles.
Had the XD-9 tactical been available at the time that's what I would have puirchased but I don't regret getting the 4". Those of us that carry full size 1911's don't have a problem with the Tactical for concealed carry .Uncle Paul said:Hi,
I want to use an XD-9 tactical for CCW, training and competition. They appear to be excellent low cost guns. I have read about rust problems... I guess in general, do you have any input? What should I watch out for?
