All right, i've been reading this site now for over a year. I guess it's time to join. I've been a gun owner for over forty years and I've always had a few nice pieces that I've enjoyed killing targets with. I found you guys looking for info. on the XD 45 GAP quite a while back. The wealth of information here has been great. The problem with all this information and the XDs is the addiction they have. I bought a 9MM Bi-tone service in may because I could not wait any longer for the 45 GAP to show up at the gun stores. This thing is just plain tough. Sooooo much gun for the money. Plans now are for the tactical GAP, and a sub 40, all in bi-tone. Then of course, more mags, trigger jobs, guide rods, springs, sights, more ammo, more ammo. Anyway, thanks everyone for the great site for XD addicts. I'll chime in when I can. Oh man, I got'ta go to the gun store!
