I just purchased an XD-40 Sub-Compact this weekend.

Went to the range with 100 rounds. Winchester 165 gr from WalMart. No problems whatsoever. So far I am very pleased with my purchase. My only complaint is the stiffness of the springs in the magazines. They were very difficult to load to full capacity.

Any other XD owners near Lansing, MI that want to go shooting!?

Congrats! I'm not surprised to hear that you are enjoying your new xd and without any problems. As for mag spring stiffness, i'd suggest just leaving it fully loaded a couple of days. That should help some.

I have never been to an organized shooting event before. What is the event like? Do I bring my own ammo? How much? What types of shooting will I be doing? Etc?

I'll check my schedule and get back with you.

Ear and eye protection.
outside of the waste band holster which covers the trigger
200+Rounds ammo.
Mag pouches at least 4 or 5 mags

I have extra pouches, mags,Holsters and can even sell you some reloads if you like. 8)

The shooting is action packed Steel silhouettes, man targets ,open doors shoot thru windows and moving.The will go easy on you as a beginner :wink:

Warning though very addictive :shock:

Also pick up a speedloader, I use the ADCO super thumb. It'll save your hands for shooting. ajames and old school have a few to choose from.
