Went to Bull's Eye Shooter Supply today and bought a blued XD-9 Tactical to keep my XD-9 Service company in the safe. It was destiny, the box had my birthday on it as date of manufacture. Cost was $449 cash on the barrel. I lovingly cleaned and lubed it this evening while watching airline disaster documentary on National Geographic channel. Laid it to bed next to it's smaller brother nested between my other 9mm guns. My wife was with me and we decided to go and get a second CZ-83, in .380 ACP this time, as we both like the first one so much. Oh well, blows my gun budget for the rest of the year, but at least it was the money that we got back from the IRS this year. I will post later as to my range time tomorrow with it. I may also do a small pron post in the future and let you folks see some of my armory.
