I'm presently in possession of a .45 Tactical w/ thumb safety I purchased as a gift for my father. I liked it so much I put on order a .45 tactical black/black for myself. It's taken more than two weeks, and it still isn't here. :evil: However, at the same dealer that ordered the XD tactical also has in stock an XD .45 Tactical Dark Earth/Stainless. I haven't seen one of these before, so I think I'm going to pay a little extra and get it. I'll post pics when I do!
