First of all I'd like to say, great board, been lurking on and off since I first ordered my OD XD-40 Tactical.
I waited forever to get my XD, after being jerked around quite a bit for a several months by what I thought was a reputable dealer who kept telling me the XD was very hard to get because they were back ordered from the factory. Well after finally running out of patience I went to a different dealer who got me what I wanted within' a week DOH! Of course being in California I still had my 10 waiting period but hey what's 10 days after several months
Once I picked up my XD I promptly came down with Toncilitis which put me three weeks further away from shooting my XD....yep I have apparently angered the Gods!
OK, finally recover and make it to the range, mind you I have read the posts about folks having problems with the XD-40 hanging up so I am a bit nervous to shoot it for the first time. I'm happy to report it performed flawlessly, I put 250 rounds of 165 grain CCI Blazer ammo through it without so much as a hiccup, Lets just say I've got a big grin on my face now
I have to agree with your assessment. I've had my XD40 Service for a month now with 500 rds of WWB 180gr through it. Not a single malfunction. Ever. As of right now, I trust mine and my family's life with this pistol. In fact, I'll be shopping around for XD #2 today!
