I just picked up my XD9SC last night and put a box of Winchester White Box through it 10 minutes later. I'm happy with my purchase so far, which is odd becasue I usually get buyers remorse by the time I get home! :lol: This is my first gun, so I am a no0b. I'll be looking around for all the tips I can get though.

Welcome to the club!! First things first go for some training its worth the time and money. I too did not suffer from buyers regret, though I rarely do when I buy guns.

Welcome to the XD club, Sry0fcr! I am a newbie to guns as of Father's Day this year. My first purchase was an XD-9 subbie, too. There are a LOT of friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful people here. I think you'll enjoy your stay. And enjoy your new XD. I love shooting mine, and my fiancee loves shooting her's, too.

You should come out to the TXDPSA meeting this Sat. at Top Gun.

Click on the link in my signature and read about us.

Newbie's are always welcome and can participate at whatever level they are comfortable with. In fact, you can even just come and watch. We also go to lunch afterwards for the fellowship factor as well.

What should I be using to clean it with?

Lumberjack, I was actually planning on going to Top Gun sometime this week. I just might take you up on that offer. :D

C.L.P. = clean lubricate protect- one product does it all
or
simple green- rinse well afterwards and use an air conpressor to dry it VERY WELL
or
Blue Wonder makes some products that clean and protect very well

There are many others to use. some stink, odor wise that is, some stink as in they don't clean too well. Trial and error for you.

Try Break Free CLP to start with. It is a fairly good cleaner and lubricant. Later you will probably develop you own likes and dislikes for Cleaning Solvent and Lubricant.

I just got a xd40sc yesterday and put about 150 rounds trough it today. I love it. I shoot it better than my sig 229. for me I actually like it better without the grip ext. ether way these are some great guns. I wish I hadnt waited so long to get the first one. I hope you enjoy yours as much as i do mine.

Watch out for that WWB ammo. Many of us have experienced ejection failures, etc. due to that particular ammo as you can see from some of the threads posted here in this forum. Goodluck.

Well, I picked up another box of WWB and some CLP today. I'll take anyone's reccomendations on practice ammo. You guys have the experience here.

For range ammo, I use 9mm WWB almost exclusively. I have never had any malfunctions.

Perhaps it's a 9mm vs. 40cal thing. :?:


You should come shoot with us this Saturday.
