    I always kinda liked XD's. Never was a big fan of Glocks, not sure why, but I enjoyed shooting other people's XD's.

    Buddy of mine was having financial problems, and needed cash very quickly. So he offered to sell me his XD .40 for a very reasonable amount.

    All and all, for everything in the following photos I paid $340 or close to it. $20 of it was transfer fees and such from the local gunstore.

    I think I got a decent bargain, all and all. Shoots very well, I like the feel of the weapon and it was right time. I'm a happy shooter. :D

    I'm definitely a convert to 'plastic guns'.

    Nice...:D

    You know when the green guns started coming out, I could not stand the look of them.. But lately they have been very appealing to me.

    I still think green guns are ugly. I like the Bi-Tone's a lot though...:D

    Looks just like mine, except for the grips. You made good purchase that you won't regret. I love my green XD.


    Isn't that strange? I felt the same way. Considering the similarities, it's kind of hard to figure why.

    I guess it's kind of like I always liked the Camaro better than the Firebird. Never really knew why, I just did.

    Man I dig the OD green XD. I have a sub - compact that I really enjoy shooting. What is that grip wrap ? Hogue or ????. I guess if you wanted you could pull that up over the grip safety and have one less potential murphy.

    Congrats on the new tupper ware. I have enjoyed shooting mine. Although I did catch a rash of crap on this forum for getting the OD one. I still like it best.

    It's a hacked up slip over grip. I'm sure the boys in the gun store would be amused to see a nice grip hacked up. It does slide around a little bit, but not enough to interfere with loading or the grip safety. I like the finger bumps, if that's the technical term.

    The subcompacts are way too small for my hand. I was looking at the 5 inch version, but the 4 inch version kinda fell into my lap.

    I always hear them called finger grooves. Actual technical term? I dunno.
