I've been reading the forum for a while now and have to say it's one of the best I've come across in a long time. A tip of the hat to the admin, moderators and members. I purchased my first XD a while back after shooting S&W for years. I still enjoy my S&W wheel guns but as far as a semi-autos go this XD is fantastic. I try to shoot it as much as possible if I can pry it away from my wife and grandson.
