Anyone know if the XD was part of the US Dept. of homeland security pistol procurement test? This was the most rigorous governmental testing thus far, surpassing the 1980's evaluations. You know the one that SIGARMS and HK won 2004 government contracts with as a result of earning the highest scores. Second, does anyone know if the results are available over the internet to read? Thanks in advance.

Ok thanks for the reply. Anyone know if the DHS test results are available to the public? Looks like interesting reading. Especially the plugged barrel test. They press fit a bullet into the barrel then fire a round.

All,

I presently have a FOIA request for that study and all related materials. I could not find the study on the net, and i looked hard. All i know is what you stated above, though i do have one correction. Pricing was also considered in the contracts, not just score.

I was looking for my frist gun and wanted the results the study to help make my decsion, but I got ready to get the gun before the gov gave me the study.


If i get the study, i will try to get it to the web some how (though i do not know if that is leagal or not, but i really do not care).

If its released through a foia request, then by its very nature its public information.

Yea, I forgot about that.

What i plan on doing is scanning every single page (which that could be hundreds, because i used the words "all related" and "any related" in my request a lot) and loading it into an adobe file (or other such format), and posting that sucker on the net, i do not care if it taks me a year.

So there might be some law ...some where... that i would break.

Keep in mind though that I still have not recvied any information, so I do not know what those guys at homeland will give me.

As to the list idea, if the study is worth its salt and it gets on the net, i am sure you will not have much of a problem finding it. Most guns sites will link to it eventually.

(And i will be sure to post it here)

Hmm, i might think about doing that. My scanner is high speed with optical charachter recognition and reconciliation. I could do that fairly quickly and save directly to PDF.

I will be sure to contact you if it turns into that large of a task.

I also have a huge hunking scanner at work, that I could use in the off time (you just load the pages in and it scans one page every second or half second and spits them out).
