I was searching for a XD9 subcompact and came across this forum so I figured that I would check it out. I am going to get a XD and I figured that I would check this forum out. I know that it is a good place to get info and opinions on this and other firearms. I have never owned a handgun, but I have been shooting since I was about 8 years old, so I know a little about them. I currently have an appointment to get my CCW and I am going to purchase the XD9 subcompact really soon. I look forward to getting to know people on here and hopefully you guys are as friendly as people on the other forums I am with.
