    I'd like to hear your opinion of it. I used a 9mm Tactical for a while to shoot USPSA Production and was quite pleased with it. The only thing I did to it was install a fiber optic front sight. :)

    Rob Leatham could use a Slingshot in comp. and still whip half the people there...ahh except me of course! :neener:

    I used an Xd-9 a few times in a local competition (before I trashed my arm) and it worked fine...I sucked of course but the weapon was fine... :D

    Gonna get me a Cz-75 so I can suck with that as well... :neener:

    yeah, well I've never sucked with an XD or a CZ-75. :neener:

    I currently do my sucking with a G17. I have also been known to suck with a Model 15, and a 5906.

    I used a XD 9mm Tactical last Saturday in the club 3 gun match. I did OK, won my class, 50+ shooters overall, Check it out www.udpl.net

    I use an XD-9 4" with a Blade-Tech belt holster for IDPA competition. It is also the same rig I carry on the street.

    Corey, I didn't know you were shooting an XD now. I have one, but I haven't started reloading .40 yet, so I haven't used it in a match yet.

    Actually, the XD is coming on strong in USPSA Production Division. Especially since guys have started doing the great trigger jobs. Little over travel, half the take up, under 3 pounds. Great guns.

    Springfield's Custom Shop now offers the XD Custom Pro with all the bells and whistles including a beavertail. For some strange reason they are pushing them in .45 GAP caliber (although they supposedly offer it in 9mm and .40 also). I say strange because the magazine only holds nine rounds which would put it at a disadvantage in USPSA's L10 Division and out of the question completely in Limited.

    Still, it's a sexy looking thing! :what:

    Larry, I thought I'd give it a try, it'll never replace my 1911 in IDPA. But for 3 gun, I will continue to use it. (until something else catches my eye)....

    I use my XD-9 Service for USPSA Production. It seems to work quite well, certainly much better than I do! :what: It has been 100% reliable and plenty accurate for this shooting game. :)

    The XD is a very good gun. IDPA killed it by putting it in EXP instead of SSP where it should have been. USPSA legal for production though thankfully.

    CCW1911 - I think that's because Bill Wilson's shop doesn't sell XDs? :neener:
