    After watching that movie, I'm wondering if I shouldn't move this thread to the "High Energy Disco" forum... :D

    Great, now the gun makers are marketing towards the Generation X attention-deficit crowd.

    Interesting comment rock jock. Gen. X has a short attention span. The old dog in me is thinking, get them to buy one, get them interested in a newer toy, have them sell us their guns cheap. Old age and treachery always prevails over youth and energy. :D

    There's always room for another gun. As long as the manufacturers are making them, and as long as we are buying them, the world will be a happy place!

    Is it just me, or is a tactical light on a subcompact fricken retarded?

    That is like putting low profile tires and alloy rims on a Geo Metro.

    *sigh*
    Some people just get silly over that kinda thing. Other than that light (so lame...) this little XD is one VERY COOL pistol. I LOVE this gun. I love the 5 inch version. I love this subcompact even more.
    Why isn't this in .40 and .357 like the others?

    When I think of Xtreme gun I think of something a little more rugged then a Mini XD9.

    Maybe an XD454Casual....that would be Xtreme

    Their marketing seems to be directed at a younger crowd. They wan tthe people who are turning 21 and are fairly new to firearms. They already have a bunch of old farts buying their 1911's. They want to start em young then keep selling them products throughout their lives. Brand loyalty with firearms seems as strong as brand loyalty with cars in the US.

    EEEEF!

    I made the mistake of watching BOTH of them back to back. If I start having seizures from the repetitive flashing patterns, do I sue the gun manufacturers, the computer compay, or my ISP?

    "Welcome to the 7-11 school of Clerking/Beauty/Marketing. Repeat after me " Welcome to ________, can we help you?"

    The little XD does little for me ....then again Glocks never did anything for me either.....oh well.

    Watch the ADHD comments.....some of our kids are like that and some of them got it from US! ;)

    Shoot well

    Don’t care for the marketing. Cool gun. Probably wouldn’t buy the light.
