    This week I picked up a XD40. I have owned both the XD45 Compact and the XD9SC in the past but I really wanted to give the .40 a try.

    The XD40 did not fail to impress. I fired 150 rounds through it the day after I got it and it did everything that it was supposed to do. Recoil is perfectly managable and accuracy is just as good as I can expect. No malfunctions and no problems of any kind. I was considering getting a Glock 23, but I am a reloader and I wanted something that I could use to shoot lead relods out of without the hassle of buying a aftermarket barrel.

    I was planning on just using this pistol as a house gun, but I find that it is actually quite concealable IWB. The grip is a little long, but even that is not too bad to hide under a loose t-shirt. If I find myself in the mood to carry something a little bigger than my sub-compact Glock or my 5-shot revolvers, the XD40 would do fine.

    Here are a few pics of the gun and my results from yesterdays range trip. This target was shot rapid fire, unsupported at 7 yards. Needless to say I am happy with the results. It's not going to replace my Glock 26 as my main carry gun due to it's size, but I feel good with it on my nightstand!

    Very nice. I'm looking forward to taking my new XD45 Tactical out to the range for the first time. I am hoping it turns out to be as reliable as my Glock 21sf. I like my Glock well enough but the handle on the XD just feels a bit more slim and easier for me to get my fingers around.

    I have the 4" that comes with the two different magazine lengths. Neat gun.

    Looks great... at 7yards quick fire, looks like you'll do just fine against a bad guy.

    What more can you ask for? Great choice by the way.

    Congrats on your purchase Katana. I've got an XD-40 I've had for a couple of years & it is what I usually carry. It's been a good gun but sometimes I think I should have got the .45 compact. I guess the grass is just always a little greener.

    Thank you for the report! The XD is a fine pistol IMO regardless of size or chambering. I've been seriously thinking of an XDm 40 and a XD9 subcompact. :)
