Recently Hurricane Ike put my hometown in its sights. I am a Deputy Constable in Crystal Beach, Tx which was ground zero for this storms monster storm surge. To condense what could be a long story, my coworkers and I left at the last minute only to go back to rescue others from the quickly rising Gulf of Mexico. We lost a dump truck in the surge and had to swim, wade, crawl, and walk to safety while having two older gentlemen in tow. We saved the men, but all of our duty weapons were submerged in salt water for well over an hour. My XD 45 was gritty and parts were starting to rust within minutes. A friend of mine contacted Lexi at S.A. and told her what happened. I shortly received a shipping label and off my gun went. Well just over a week later I received my gun back with the whole firing mechanism replaced, new mags, a new case and that whole gun refinished. When I opened the box, there was not sign that the gun had ever been used. The best part about it is that the work was completed at no charge to me. I just want to share my appreciation towards SA with all of you and to confirm that SA is still a small American company that treats is consumers with top notch service and does what they can to take care of the people that make their business go around.
