    I recently purchased a Springfield Armory XD 40 S&W. I am going crazy because I cannot figure what the S&W stands for at the end of the description. It's obviously not Smith & Wesson but I would really like to figure it out. If someone could please save me from going crazy, I would appreciate it.

    Thanks for any help.

    Actually I can't imagine it stands for anything but Smith and Wesson, referring to the designation for the caliber it's chambered in.

    It is the caliber of the gun, .40 Smith & Wesson.

    yea, s&w stands for smith and wesson. they came up with the round, so the .40cal pistol cartridge is the .40 S&W:)

    garycooley22 - Have you shot it yet ? Do you like it ?

    I got mine new last November & I'm very pleased with mine. I've got 400 rounds of Blazer Brass shot through mine with zero problems. Simple to field strip for cleaning. It lives in the nightstand drawer as it is too big & heavy to conceal.

    I'm thinking about getting a Beretta PX4 Storm SC for CCW.

    Thank You everyone for you replies. I greatly appreciate you speedy responses. Also, ShotGunJoe, I have not shot mine yet. I bought it yesterday brand new and I live within city limits and dont want to pay shooting range fees. My family live in the country and I will be shooting it this weekend. My brother has the XD45 ACP Tacticle 5" barrel, I have shot his and really liked it but wanted something smaller so I could conceal it easier.

    Thanks Again,

    Gary Cooley

    I disagree. I carry mine pretty much daily.

    If you think it's too heavy you might want to hit the gym.

    I easily CCW an XD45 Tactical by using an OOB holster, strong side, and a sport coat. No one ever knows it's there.

    XD40sc is my ccw, even in a owb holster it hides pretty well under longer jacket. Add a pinky grip extension and it's a nice package.

    I carry either my XD-40 Service or my XD-45 Compact in a DeSantis Speed Scabbard every day - have been for about two years now. No one's ever noticed it that I'm aware of.
