Hello, new to the XD forum. I just purchased a new bi tone XD9 subcompact and will be picking it up on the 21st. I have owned a SA 1911 in the past but have always wanted to get an XD. California does not allow the XDM or XDS models but I am sure I will be very happy with my new purchase. I was happy to find out I was eligible for the "Gear Up 2017" promotion from Springfield Armory so I will be receiving 4 additional magazines, a mag pouch and a holster for free, I am located in Irvine California and wouldn't mind finding local shooters to get together with.
