I am looking into buying my first Xds. I had a Springfield Champion that I used to carry,but I sold it to buy my new STI Trojan for shooting USPSA. I need to get a new carry gun now.
My son wants to start shooting at matches now and he is going to need a pistol too. He will be shooting in production class.
I really liked my Champion,there was never any feeding problems or any other problems period with that gun. I think Springfield makes really good products and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another.
My son and I were out looking at pistols the other day and believe that we have decided on the XDs. My son wants a 5" .40 for shooting matches and I want the sub compact in .40 to carry.
I have been reading alot of posts here and have seen alot of very nice XDs here.
I was wondering what any of you would suggest for upgrades,if any at all, for a stock XD? I know I want the magazine extensions on my mags whan I get mine. Other than that what would you all suggest?

Thanks

IMHO, XD's are the greatest pistols you can buy for the money. Out of the box they are awesome. Regarding upgrades, I have a service model with a Don's Guide Rod and a #22 spring. I don't think that's available for SC and Tactical models. If you want to compete with it a trigger job might be in order, but XD's are known for having excellent triggers anyway.

Welcome to the board, by the way.
