Just bought myself a Springfield XD .45 Tactical. For those of you who haven't shot one of these pistols, do it!!! This is the sweetest polymer pistol I have ever fired. This gun puts Glocks in the dirt. No offense to Glock lovers, but truth hurts. Also bought my wife a Taurus PT 111 Mil Pro in 9mm. Descent shooting gun for a 3 inch barreled pistol. Only one problem with the Taurus. One of the mags consistently pushes rounds into the chamber vetically causing a failure to load. Anybody have any experience with these guns that can tell me if this is common? Thanks, and again...GO SHOOT THE SPRINGFIELD XD .45.

Why don't you replace the bad magazine?

Report back after 10,000 rounds and we'll see if you say the samething.

The GLOCK should still run well with dirt. ;)

my shooting buddy just bought one. He let me shoot it a little on our range trip yesterday. the XD-45 is #2 on my want list (behind an AR).

He was really chewing out the center of the targets at 15 yds. Must be an accurate pistol.

I went to the range yesterday with a co-worker who had just bought a XD .45 Tactical. After shooting a couple of mags thru his XD I was sold. It's a very impressive polymer pistol! I've owned three polymers, a Steyr M9, a Glock 17L, and a HK USP Elite 9mm, and I liked his XD Tactical more than any of the ones I've owned. I plan on buying a XD 5" Tactical 9mm OD Green after the holidays.

I have had mine for about 4 months now. I shoot about every weekend, 250-500 rounds. I haven't had a single hiccup with my XD .45 tactical. My only complaint is that I didn't but the service model at the same time!

Take a look at the earth tone one they have. It's almost desert color. It doesn't look like much on their site, but I like it better than the green in person. If I can get rid of my OD Green Tactical .45GAP, the earth color would be the one I get.
