I had shot Glocks and loved the way they shot, but not the way they fit my hand or the way they looked. The first time I held an XD I fell in love with the "feel" and the looks of the gun. My only problem was that I knew of Glocks great reputation and I had actually shot several. It became evident that I was not going to be able to actually shoot an XD, I would have to just buy one on faith. This forum helped me do just that. The day I bought my XD-40 I went straight to my friends caliche pit to see if it would go bang everytime I pulled the trigger. The very first clip bonded me to the pistol. I not only love shooting this pistol, I will trust my life to it. Thank you all for helping me make a great gun purchase.
Only problem with you guys and gals........now I "have to" have a crossbreed holster, a basic trigger job, tritium night sights, and a closet full of ammo!
P.S. I just had elbow surgery and this forum and a few pain pills have been great for my recovery. BTW I always just refer to my guns by their first name. This one is "my 40".

Welcome to the forum from Las Vegas. Congratulations on your new XD.

XD's are fine guns and you'll love your crossbreed supertuck. I carry with the supertuck. It is so comfortable.

I was almost the same way. I had forever shot revolvers but decided to get an anto. Oh, I had had autos in the past but I guess never the right one. Either they didn't fit my hand or made too much noise for my old ears.
I will probably have to buy another since the wife likes the way mine handles, hers will be black. I want to keep them seperate since mine is OD green. :lol:
Happy to have the XD and the forum. Thanks guys (and Gals).
