    Welcome Griff. The XD is a good piece to get back into practice.

    Thanks.

    I've got both the XD-40 and XD-40 SC. I've shot about 1,000 rounds thru the SC so far, and about 350 thru the 4". I like that they've both got very little kick compared to what I thought they'd have and that they're both extremely easy to field strip and clean - no special tools needed! The SC will be my CC once I get my CHL.

    I'd heard very good stories from my father and a couple of friends who own XD's - most of them have the XD-45 - and how they shoot. Picked both of these XD's up at the BX, as they're now selling firearms at the Little Rock AFB BX. No sales tax and the prices were very comparable to what I'd pay for one off-base, in some instances cheaper than I'd pay off-base.

  4. thanks gents. glad to be here.

  5. glad to be aboard.

    A Carolina howdy, 06

    Greetings, salutations, hallucinations, and adulations-lol. Just stumbled onto the site and glad it is here. Good to see so much info for those who travel with firearms. I started carrying constantly after a friend was robbed and killed while working in his garden just behind his home. We always travel as if we might have to walk back home. Some of us "gun nuts/pioneering skills" nuts started having bi annual mtgs several yrs ago. Every April/ Oct. we usually meet at a shooting sports 4-H camp in NC (Millstone) and enjoy the facilities, food, fellowship. Hope to get to know many here. Have enjoyed many years of deer hunting and plinking. Fired competition while in the Corps a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away.Now I am content to piddle in the raised beds, corn patch, shooting range, ponds, and try to keep "Moma 6" from getting too many things piled up on the "honey do" list-lol. I parked my Warthog for a little Makarov for every day usage. The 357 is my hunting sidearm and occasional carry. Getting my old Colt 1911 refurbished with a new hammer/sear/trigger spring/throat polished/ and lightened trigger pull. Should be ready to go again. It's next stop will be a re parkerizing job. If any are local to the carolinas plan on coming to our wee gatherings-Oct. is the next one.

    Do not know if my first intro got zapped or not so here goes again. I recognize several names here and am glad to say hello to all. Am "06" or variant on several sites -- guess it is because I primarily shoot 06s of various designs-- lol. I do have a few of inferior calibers but try to hide it, snicker. Love deer hunting and keeping 'em "in the black". Am just an old country boy redneck who loves gardening, prepping, and The Lord. Guess I fall into that kenyan category of a "bitter clinger". Hope I fit in with folks here-- nice site.
