Packing all my gear up to head to SD for the advanced pistol handling class. I have the G19 in reserve and the xd kinda cleaned. 1200 rnd's in 2 days should be a good time. I just wish 45 ammo was cheaper, I would take my new XDm45.
Packed up all the gear except for my mag pouch. ended up using the (spare) glock due to the fact the glock mag pouch I did have with couldn't tighten up enough to use the xd mags. glock worked ok, with the annoying habit of dropping the slide on mag insertion. got to be a real headache. One guy had a 5 inch xd9 that was having some extractor issues until cleaned out good, Then it was flawless. but a xdsc worked flawlessly according to it's owner. I had a couple non staged hiccups, along with the other glock on the line, which had some feeding issues. as far as I can tell the xd9sc, and m&p in 9 came out on top reliability wise with a 1200 or so round count each.
