Another Marylander! welcome! I'm in towson and love my XD45... now if only they would let us carry in this state...I just purchased the XD 40 4", NIB, tritum sights, case and accesories for about $550. I've owned 2 Taurus PT92 / 99, plus a Springfield 1911 .45 ACP. I like the feel of this XD and am looking forward to hitting the range.
