I have been a member of several other web forums for several years. I enjoy learning and sharing information about various types of firearms. Although I do not currently own an XD I am seriously looking into buying one. That is why I have joined this web forum to learn all I can about the XD platform prior to buying one. I have owned Rugers, several Glocks, and 1911's. I held a friends XD .45 the other day and was very impressed with its look and feel. Anyway hello to everybody, I hope to make many new friends on this forum.
