I just purchased the XD(M) 9mm. This was the first time I purchased a gun that was new out of the box. In the black carry case there was a small white envelope with a spend casing. I assume it is probably from a test fire through my gun but can someone give me a little more info as to the significance and why Springfield includes it?

i think one or two states require it. in those states you have to take the case to the police and then they put it on file so they can trace the gun back to you.
last i heard they haven't ever caught anyone with that system

Also, it proves to you that the thing fires. Rudimentary function check.

Thank god I live in NH. I suppose opening the said sealed envelope to look at the casing would have messed up the validity of it if I lived in one of the aforementioned states. (Few miles South of here and you're in the Socialist Republic of Massachusettes.)

Remember 20 some years ago when we were so apalled at the Soviet KGB for spying on their own citizens and wire tapping their phone lines?

Thanks for the rapid responses.

Ok, the answer is that #1 to prove that the weapon was/did fire #2 it is to remained SEALED in that envelope so it can prove your innocense-think that is how it is spelled- yes I am tired.- and also have a record on file in the data base. From what I have been told and found out that casing SHOULD be on file for police and csi nation wide.

BTW WHY DID YOU ASK the dealer when you went thru the case at the shop??? :sad:
