    Took my XD 45 out yesterday for the first time. All I can say is incredible! I wasnt sure what to expect, but everything was amazing. I figured there would be more recoil then there was. Comaring it to my dad's 40, this is a lot less snappier, and just felt very smooth to shoot. The accuracy was very impressive too. I'm not very good with handguns (yet) but was able to manage fist size grouping from about 15 feet. I was very, very happy with this. The only problem I have seen with this weapon (not a very big problem, more of something I need to change) is that I don't always engage the trigger safety because the bend of my finger doesn't fully depress it. This can be fixed by sliding my finger a tad on the trigger. Overall, I'm very happy with the gun and cannot wait to get it out again.

    Glad to hear you're liking it. When you get your finger more evenly on the trigger, your accuracy will probably also improve as a good side effect. When it's not even, you tend to pull the gun one way or the other as you squeeze the trigger.

    Also, only the pad of your finger tip should touch the trigger, not the inside of the first joint.

    I am also an XD45 fan. I've carried my XD45 Compact daily for several years and would not trade it for any other handgun on the market. It fits me perfectly and I shoot it exceptionally well. I've lost track but it's gotta be somewhere past 9,000 rounds without a single hiccup. I trust this particular machine with my life much moreso than any other I've ever used. Mine has a four pound combat/carry trigger job by Springer Precision, Trijicon green front, yellow rear night sights, and a Lasermax guiderod laser.

    I have been going back and forth between the XD and Sig p250 in 45. Both seemed to have equally good reviews. The XD holds a few more rounds (sig compact holds 9) but it cost about $100 more in my area ($389 vs $499).

    I could not shoot one first but after holding them both in my hand, I really liked the feel if the P250 more. I went with the P250. Better egros and $100 cheaper. (I am a revolver guy at heart so I like the DA trigger of the Sig

    It was a hard decision though. The XD looks like a great gun and I am sure I will pick up one (prob in 9mm) one day
