Meprolights much brigter indeed. I have them on all my guns and they are great. Yes, time to accessorize and kiss your bank account goodbye. Look at all the stuff I added to my XD! Ah, but that is part of the fun. I am doing the same thing with my new Remington 870 Police shotgun. Hiding the bills from my wife is a real challenge. Better known as creative accounting.
By the way, a manly tube grip on your new XD is non-negotiable. Don't be caught with a girlie-man Hogue. Wouldn't be prudent. Many have tried to be closet Hogue or worse, Pachmayr wearers but were found-out and disgraced beyond belief.
