Hello everyone. Ive been lurking and reading the forums for awhile now and made the jump to joining today. I have to say I am very impressed with the general friendlyness of the members in the different threads. I am a long time shooter and my first gun was actually a hs2000 that Ive had for about 10 yrsand ive had alot of guns in between including a few glocks and sigs but my hs was always a favorite. So a month ago I broke down and bought a xd 40 and I have to say i was not disappointed. Xd's have to be one of the best guns I have ever held and Ive held and shot alot of them. I have at least 10000 rounds thru my hs and I am looking forward to a long and happy relationship with my new xd. Well thanks for listening and for having a great place for us avid shooters and gun lovers. Take care everyone.
