Well i shot pretty poorly tonight and it was all because of my XD. I only brought one to the range tonight as the the other two are getting thier slides refinished at Macs. When i got to the range there were 7 other guys there and they had all the pistol berms in use. They invited me to shoot with them as they were having a firendly compitition shoot. the targets were from 20ft to 20 yrds away and some were steel plates and some were bowling pins. i told them that i would shoot a few mags and be on my way. well they would not hear of that and told me that i did not drive all the way there to just shoot a few rounds and insisted that it would be great for me to shoot with them. well the first target was 10 yrds away it was a metal spinner about 7" in diamater. i only had my 10 rnd rage mags with and i hit it all 10 times. The next was a paper plate at 7yrds and i hit it all 10 times. Thats when things went downhill fast. they were looking at my XD as they all shot Glocks with one guy shooting a sig. I offered it to one of the guys to try and he took me up on it. His first mag he did ok and the next he scored all hits. it went down hill from there. they all wanted to try it and so i wound up shooting Glocks the rest of the night. they all loved it. to the best of my knowledge they all shot as godo or better with it than thier Glocks. Dont get me wrong Glock is a good gun. when we were done shooting they wanted to see how is stripped down so i showed them. i also showed them how the XD has a fully supported chamber and regular rifling. they loved that. any way my scores went in the tank shooting Glocks as they just dont point like an XD. after they were done with it and i got to shoot it again i was back to my old self. im not a great shot by any means but the XD makes me better. i know if i could have shot my XD for the whole night i would have been close to first. I think a few of them will be turning from the dark side. They were a great bunch of guys and they spent the night shooting my XD and i did not care one bit. after all was said and done and we were having a beer after our guns were put away one said "well now i know what all the fuss about XD's is about. I guess that sums it up. tonight i really could say that it was the guns fault for the disasterous score. the XD was the cause of it. if they would not be so good i would have been able to shoot it all night.
