I ordered the Promo Pack (XD40 pistol, 3 high cap mags, holster, brush) NIB from online dealer $419 + 15 shipping + 37 transfer fee= $471!!! Ordered it last Thursday morning, the local gun range received it Sunday. I signed paperwork Sun and shot 150 rds of WWB 180 grn (the WWB was $15/50rnds at the gun range). Had to keep the XD40 at range for 3 day cooling off period. Checked around 4 Wal Marts for WWB but all gone, I did find 100 rnds of Rem UMC for $14, got that. Went to range Wednesday shot all the Rem UMC's flawlesslly. On way home (with my new XD40!) stopped at a different Wal Mart, they had 4 boxes WWB 165 grn, "100 rnd value pack." $15.97/100 rnds, got those!!! I haven't shot 165 grn yet, I'm hoping there'll be a noticeably smaller recoil. Can't wait to try 'em!!!
I'm going to try to put a picture of my Promo Pack in this post, sorry if it does't come out correctly, I'm new to this forum stuff.
Maybe someone can tell me how to post pictures.

I'd move your allen wrench for your holster adusting to another spot, mine ended up scratching the nose of the slide. I put mine in the upper lid under the foam. It's a great gun, I've only shot wwb 165 and tap 155 in mine so far. Got about 600 down range so far. Just installed Don's guide rod and 22# spring in the last 175 rnds. and noticed a quicker return to sight picture, not much change in recoil, but different, slower and a little less raise. I have to try the 180's to see if the poi is any different and recoil also. Your pics came out great!

thanks for the tip about the allen wrench.
last night I modified (cut out) some of the foam in the case to allow for the 3rd mag, hearing protection, and safety glasses.

Hey gdpak,

WOW that was a great price! I pick up my XD40-5" on Tuesday ($485 stnrd package). Can't wait! I picked up a box of 250 (UMC) from Outdoor World for $46 + tax. BTW I live in St. Cloud. Where do you shoot at?

P.S. You going to the Gun Show at the Fairgrounds over Thanksgiving weekend?

I live in a small area called Cambell City which is about 5 miles south of 192 on 17. There's a gun shop called Addisons just half mile down from our house. My wife and I wanted to buy the gun there to support the local shop but they wouldn't come down from their $530 + tax price.

I had the gun shipped to Oakridge Gun Range, just above the florida mall, for two reasons, 1. they only charged $37 for transfer fee and background check, and 2. shipping it too a range means I could shoot it even though I couldn't take it home for the cooling off period. So far that's the closest place I know to shoot.

Does "woodwerker" have a meaning? My wife's family bussiness is right next door to our house "WOODCRAFT," it's a speacial millwork shop.

I know where your at (Cambell City). My Brother in Law got a Browning gun safe from Addison. Thanksgiving weekend there will be a gun show at the Central Florida Fairgrounds on SR50 in Orlando. I'm gonna take the CWP class and then get my paper work going for it. After that I won't have to wait for 3 days. 8) And Yes I have heard of your wife's family shop. I used to work for a couple of local shops........no longer in business. ( Classic Wood Products and Chiavini Cabinets ) And I was a cabinet maker for Disney. Now I'm a superintendant for a commercial contractor in Orlando. We should get together and go shooting sometime. I was looking into the Central Fla. Gun Club off Moss Pk. rd. Usually we just shooting a a bud's house who live out on 192 towards Hollo Paw. We print up our own targets and stuff LOL. We shoot skeet out there too. Not like a proffesional range ...........but we have fun. Later dude.

This is my e-mail

I have ridden atv's out in Holopaw and came across a makeshift range, but never shot any guns there. Holopaw isnt to far away from me, might have to go back out to that range sometime and shoot.
