I got my XD-45 in June and just got a chance to shoot it this weekend. We were on my cousins land in South Alabama and set up a little range shooting into several Big hay bails with a hill behind them. I put 300 rounds of various brand ball and 100 hollow points through it with no problems. I didn't clean it during the session and it performed well. It was everything I expected. Accurate, decent recoil and no malfunctions. I'll clean it this week and will feel comfortable using it for home defense with the TLR light/laser mounted on it.
