well i have my xd40 service in bitone and i love it. I chose to go with it because i know that the standard slides do not have as resilient a finish as say the glocks do, and i noticed that the xd my buddy had showed signs of wear pretty early on even with decent care. So i figured why not spend the extra 30 and get a gun with a little more bling, that may be a little easier to maintain, that also makes it easier to tell when i haven't done a good enough job cleaning.

now i'm debating on whether to get a matching sc in bitone or get an hk usp compact in the bitone(while there are still some out there).

Start with the NRA's Basic Pistol Class. It is a great introduction to handgun use and saftey.

Best of luck!

You could always buy a blued one and have it hard chromed. The hard chroming I think looks a tad better than the bi tone and you get the same effect and a harder finish.

Thats what I wound up doing. I got a killer deal on a blued model and will just wind up spending the $75 to have it hard chromed. (got the pistol for dealer cost $385)

In Ohio the CCW class is the NRA basic pistol course with a section of the law added in. Great class to take even for a experienced shooter.

In Kansas City they run anywhere from $429 to $500. I guess that alot of Dealers have not been having trouble selling them at an inflated cost. Cabela's in Kansas City, Kansas has them for $439.00
