I will be getting the Black 5" Tactical in .40. Unless someone changes my mind between now and Wednesday. The gun is suppost to be in Wednesday to the local gunshop and I am leaving on vacation Wednesday afternoon. So it should work out great for my waiting period to take place while I am on vacation. Realistically I should be able to purchase and take with me but oh well.Welcome! I'm sure you are getting excited about putting that XD in your hands and heading to the range. Out of curiousity, what model are you looking at getting?
