New XD owner and this place was a wealth of knowledge while researching the gun. Thanks for that guys.

I learned to shoot on a Sig P226 and had tried other striker fired pistols and hated them. Glocks, S&W sigmas, wealthers... Tried them all. I thought I was "ruined" from liking a striker fired gun until I shot my buddy's XD. Love it and with the extra mags and a FFL buddy that got me the gun for under 500, I was sold. I've owned the gun 2 weeks and already put 1k+ rounds through it and loved every shot.

Also getting into building purpose built ARs (thinking of a 458 socom for hog hunting) and thinking of getting into some 3-Gun shoots. Nothing that competitive but something that would push my skills.

Welcome post pics of hog hunting I miss that about Texas.

Safety is a momentary choice. Prior performance and certification are completely irrelevant.

I will once i get the rifle built. I have a family friend with a farm that has a hog problem so i will have plenty of opportunity but right now my AR is no where near powerful enough and my shotgun requires me to be to close. Those are so mean animals when pissed.

I've been stock piling FMJ 9mm when i could get it for a couple years but could never seem to pull the trigger (pun intended :D) on buying a pistol. So i went a little crazy once i finally bought the XD.

And i have a couple buddies in Lubbock so i spend time there a couple times a year. I'm in Amarillo.
