I bought an XD9 Service Essentials Package last Friday (XD9101HC,
S/N XD110706), and pick it up (after the 3 day wait) tomorrow. I researched several guns before finally deciding that the XD9 Service model was "it", and like the song goes:

"I'm so excited, I just can't hide it,
I'm about to loose control and I think I like it."

(but I don't think the song was written about buying a new gun). ;)

No, but "I feel good (I got you)" was. Ha-Ha
The XD9 Service is a great gun to own in all respects. That was the first model I bought in later years and is a gun I won't part with. The XD9 is just too versatile. I also conceal carry it with no problem whatsoever. Get it and don't let it go.

Congrats on your purchase and I assure you it will bring you no disappointment:)

I have an XD9 service myself and it has been problem free since the day of purchase.

I live in Palm Bay, Florida. Wait period w/o CCW license 3 business days; I'm getting my CCW 7/27. No wait with CCW license...just background check which is typically while you wait. I have no problem with 3-day wait if transaction is through a local gun shop. Gun Show purchasing w/o CCW is another matter....PITA if seller isn't local.

you could always move to georgia. no wait or background check with firearms license. fill out 4473, copy DL and GFL, pay money, and leave. took me 5 1/2 minutes the other day.
I dont know if i could handle even a 3 day wait anymore.

I live in Texas, waiting is not an option. I haven't bought a gun in a while. The XD9 Service was my first. I just traded a taurus for the coveted XDSC 9mm ( I got the better end of the deal)

I wonder what it will be like when I walk into a dealer and show my conceal license and cut the 30+ minute wait to about 5?

I told my wife we are going to start breaking it in this weekend.
She asked: " Are we going to the shooting range Saturday ?"
I told her "No, you're gonna rack the slide and dry-fire it for a few hours while watching your Sex in the City re-runs."
