hey everyone, i have been reading the web site for a few months, and decided it was time to join and try to contribute.

i have been wanting a s.c. 40 for over a year (since i held a s.c. at the pgh nra show in 04), i haven't had the money till around last month. so i have been calling around and checking avail. and prices.
and no one has a s.c. .40 in stock, and i am told to expect an atleast 6 month wait if they can locate one.
is the case everywhere or only around pittsburgh?
i guess if i have to wait that long i will get a 9mm. but i really want the .40
also i have checked a few auction sites and didn't see a s.c.40 on any of them either. i understan the s.c. .40 is newer but i can't see why there would be such a wait?

i have my PA. ccw, and have been carring my older s&w 1911 9mm.
but it weighs a ton and i really want the s.a. xd s.c. .40..
thanks in advance

Here in NC the 40 subcompact isn't that hard to find. Good luck with your search and welcome to the board! :D

Over a year here in MI... at least to get a good price through a dealer friend.

So I've decided to change the order to a bi-tone SC as I've waited so long.

The XD had better be worth the wait!

i hate waiting!
why are they so hard to get? is it the demand? or are they just not making that many? anyone know? and is it like this everywhere?

I purchased a SCXD40 at the beginning of January. $429 at Tall Tales in Russell, PA, about three hours north of you. I was just over there on Sunday and they have several SCXD40s. Finally shot it this weekend and it does not dissappoint!

I just ordered the Stainless SCXD40. I do not see it on their site yet though, Part# is XD9822. Will hear about availability later on today. The dealer I go thru usually gets what I want. He was able to find an OD Tac. XD40 a few months ago when I couldn't find one anywhere.

BTW, my props to the owner of this site. Got wind of it from MKII.org. Very nice site here. And to think I thought there weren't too many XD lovers out there..... :roll:

Picked up an xdsc bi-tone 40 from Firearms Unlilmited in Bridgeville a month ago. At that time they still had one left.

Another Michi-Gun XDSC sighting. :D I was at Cabella's in Dundee today and they had a black XDSC .40 cal. I believe the price was $429, but I looked at a lot of guns so there are a lot of prices floating around in my head.

Good Luck!

I just picked up my OD XD40 SC from Firearms Unlimited in Bridgeville three weeks ago. I was having the same problem as you are locating one. They were the only ones around that had them in stock and he had the Bi-Tone, OD and Black. There were atleast three left after I purchased mine. Good Luck.
I have been lurking a while and am glad to finally be on the site. Thanks to all for the info provided you helped me make my mind up and I now own my first semi-auto. Put a 100 rounds of WWB thru it this past weekend and had a blast. Looks like I am going to be checking into bulk ammo purchases very soon..............
