Hey, I just picked up this XD 45, 13+1. This is one sweet pistol! Anyone that has had the opportunity to handle one of these XD's knows what I'm talking about. I bought the 4" service model. It came with two 13 round mags, a XD belt holster, XD dual magazine pouch and a magazine loader. The trigger on this gun is amazing. It's like a single action trigger with just a little bit of travel. The grip is almost as good feeling as my new S&W M&P 45. This gun has just knocked down my Glock 21 a few more notches....

I never cared for XDs before - but I rented a 4" service 45 ACP XD - and I loved it.

Later this year - I plan to get a 2 tone model. I am just debating whether or not to stay with the 4" like I rented, or get the 5" barrel.

The 45 ACP XD and the Ruger 345 are my next 2 planned gun purchases - just haven't decided which I will get 1st

Congrats! :shock:

I know what you are talking about Ship. I've walked past these XD's for a long time and never even bothered to pick one up until a few weeks ago. Now I can't believe I have over looked this gun for so long...... The price was $519 before sales tax.

I think it is much better than a Glock. I have owned 4 Glocks since 1993. I have zero now and will never buy another...
Thats fine. I own 2 right now, but have had two others in the past that I sold.

I like S&W revolvers, I just never took to the high/elevated slide on the S&W semi-auto pistols.

Buy the way, what does M&P stand for?

You're serious?

It stands for Military & Police, which was the original name of the Model 10 revolver. The're just trying to revive the name with the new autoloader.

Never shot the XD but handled them a few times - they do fit well in my hand.

I like my .40 M&P a lot!

I don't own any glocks, never fired one, but i still want on.
Glock started the polymer high cap revolution and i want one just for that reason.
