New XD-9 Service Model Owner Slide Chip?

Hey guys,
I have been reading the forum for about a month now and finally broke down and bought an XD-9. I took it out last weekend, and it is a great gun. I was only able to get into the indoor range here in Kentucky but would like to take it to the outdoor range in the next few weeks.

I do notice something about the gun slide. I am debating sending it back to Springfield or not. There is a small chip in the rear of the slide just above the striker indicator. It looks like a factory worker dropped the slide then painted it. I didn't notice it when I bought it but I wasn't being as careful as I usually am. I am very meticulous when it comes to these things and was wondering what you guys thought as well as if Springfield could even fix it.

Last, I am interested in getting a holster for it and have been looking around. I hear Fobus are decent. Does anyone have an experience with the standard Fobus holster vs. the Fobus Rotoholster?

Fobus paddle holster isnt the best, if you want something just to tote it around on the range, for $20 it isn't bad.

Check out Pistol-Gear, he's got a lot of holsters over there, cream-de-la-crop kydex holsters are pretty much Blade-Tech hands down but Fobus isn't bad if you just want something cheap.
