Well after a long wait, I finally got to shoot my XD today. Heres the storty..

I was able to get my gun on a wednesday, brought it home with every intention of shooting 100 rounds through it, but my 2 friends who had friends who would allow us to shoot at their properties were both unavailable, so we ended up sneaking (as well as you can sneak gunshots) in my buddies backyard, we were pressed for time and they were able to load 2 clips before i got there, so they started shooting and i was only able to get 6 measly rounds in before their flurry of rounds started going off..

so i run over and load my clip and pop off 6 shots.

"WOW, how cool is that" i think.... I need more.

but we cant b/c any more and the cops will come, not to mention my buddys dad will get pissed.

next day i have to work allday, friday i work and have some time, but it doesnt matter b/c i have a wedding to attend.. another day wasted.

saturday morning i have to go to the beach for 2 days. which was ok but i have my gun mag there and i'm itching to shoot.. so

today we all finish our stuff and i decide i cant wait and i am willing to pay the 10bucks to shoot at the indoor range. On the way there my friend calls, "where are you" .. "on the way to the range".. " turn around we can shoot at my neighbors house" ...

SWEET. free range. i like it.

so i drive over and we load up our home made targets of 3/4 " plywood that we made while we were supposed to be working the week before. we staple some targets on, and were off. We each put at least 100 rounds through our XDs.

Then comes the part we've been waiting for. We pull out Brett Favre and we decide we will empty a clip reload empty another all into BF. (there is also a S&W .45 shooting) so we do that twice, annoy/scare all the neighbors with with 2 sessions of 96 rounds within 30 seconds or so.

and all i can say is. It was great fun, i want to go again right now.

with all that ammo we only had 1 fail to feed, i think it was limp wristing though. It wasnt my gun it was the bi tone.

here are some pics. enjoy.




Then the aftermath...mwahaha



1st day shooting and we were just running through clips as fast as possible
so please disregard the lack of grouping.. but give us a break we were at 100 yards.. :wink:


:D <my face afterwards

i did it with a crayola. rubbed it on there then buffed it out, filled in the empty space and buffed again. i found it easier to use the fingernail to wipe off the excess initially then buffed it with a damp warm sock inside out(because i think the loops on the inside of the sock worked better) ... then added armadillo..

before the 'proper term police' attack... crayola is a brand of crayons that i used so save your fingers.. leave the comments like
"well actually if you want to be technical the word is spelled C-R-A-Y-O-N; which of course is A stick of colored wax, charcoal, or chalk, used for drawing. but thats just me I NEVER use a word other than the correct one"

or
"the 'loops' that you are referring to inside a sock are properly known as incanvestibules because they were invented in the early 1920s to help with the moisture produced by the feet. the incanvestibules were designed by robert mertzman who was a sports coach who felt the need to alleviate the slipping within the shoes of his athletes. . . Of course i'm a moderator at the foot covering forum over at sweatyfeet.com so i know this... :wink:"

and as you can see i use the abbreviation for magazine-'mag' in my second set of pictures. but who knows maybe mag isnt acceptable either. peace out, grammar/thesauras/dictionary police.


but thanks for thinking it looks good. it was easy to do. i thought red might look good on the black as well. lets see how yours turns out.


so long, (wait thats not correct) goodbye (hmm..) farewell(i cant think of the right word). (i think they are synonyms and everyone knows what i'm saying... )

i'm not mad.

and also it should be noted that i think brett favre is a great QB ('quarterback' for the anal ones out there). i just think he layed down for Michael Strahan, plus he has a bit of a rivalry with the bucs so... being from tampa. he annoys me. mostly cuz he is strahans number one fan (as you can see from the emblem on his jersey)

Glad you had a good time. Brett probably had it coming.

Don't get offended at the Magazine/Clip comments. Just use the proper terminology, and we won't have to turn your warm wet sock back right-side in, fill it with bullets, and give you a code red. This is your only warning. :lol:

Keep the photos coming, and welcome!
