Greetings! I would like to say hello to everyone, and brag on this site. I've visited XD Talk for quite sometime, and have used information primarily from here in researching the Springfield XD. I've wanted one for years, and finally broke down and got an XDM .40 compact. I love the gun, and thanks to all the helpful reviews and accurate information I found here, I knew I wouldn't regret the purchase. My girlfriend and I completed a CCW course Saturday, and we'll be applying for our permits. I feel confident in knowing that I now have a quality carry gun that will serve me well. It's really cool to see that there's such a following for the XD. Take care all.
