Every time I take my XD MOD II 45 3.3 inch barrel gun I always manage to hit the bulls eye! Today I took it to the range and tried double and triple taps from 5 yards or less and was very impressed at how fast you can really shoot this little 45! Heck, once again I shot it better than my Glock 26. I still don't know why I shoot this gun better than all my other guns (G26, G19 and XDM 4.5). Recoil is incredibly manageable and I guess it's because of the weight. I know it's strange, but I enjoy shooting my little 45 more than my other 9mm guns. I've heard about other people shooting the 45 better. Anyone else? I really love my little 45 and it's becoming my favorite gun! It's the FDE version so it's a very attractive gun too. Oh yeah and it hides IWB just as good as a G19 (and weighs about the same too).
