My Boss and I took our CWP class last night here in Salt Lake City. We both have XD-40 Subcompacts (mine is bio-tone though ) The instructor was showing different types of guns and how to load, unload, clean etc. When It came time to show off auto loaders he pulled out his Glock and loaded it, and said...."now is there anyway to tell if this is loaded?...." and then he answered his own question..."no"..... I spoke up and said, I can on my XD!! .......If looks could kill I woudn't be here today. He was such a Glock fan boy. Anyway, I thought I would share that.
