Ace, so very true! I am amazed sometimes by how we, literally, see things differently. For example, what we can see out of the car windshield is dramatically different: she can see things in the sky or up high that the roof blocks from my vision and I can see things down low and close to the car that she can't. Keeps things interesting!

I have two friends that have XD's. They loves them.
My problem, and it is my problem... Is that Springfield proudly advertises themselves as the oldest manufacturer of firearms in the US. And then I look at the XD's frame. And it says Made in Croatia.
No. thanks. I'll pass on this one.

John!

I know John Correia. He's an honest man and does indeed teach and participate in a lot of classes. If you watch the whole video, I think he explains it well.

That's all I need to know, then. Your recommendation is gold with me, buddy.

I have 2 XDs and an XDm. One, an XD40, is on permanent loan to my son. The XD9 and XDm40 alternate as my EDC. The XD9 has had a lot of lead and jacketed handloads through it, and boxes of Speer, Corbon, Remington, and Winchester jacketed stuff. I know it's not a lot compared to people who shoot much more than I do, but there were no problems (except for a few lead loads--I pulled them--that were underloaded with Unique that didn't open the slide enough). The XDm hasn't had as many rounds through it, but again no problems. The 9 got a trigger job from Powder River Precision, sweet! So I ordered parts from PRP, took the XDm apart down to the frame (except for the grip safety and mainspring), and it went back together just fine. The better trigger pulls on both of them help a lot. Love my Springfields!

In a discussion with a customer yesterday, we were talking about the pros and cons of various makes/models. He told me XD is good, so what more could you ask for? Ace

I saw the McRib video, did some research, and the XD got rave reviews from those who have put thousands of rounds down range. My XD9sc has had no issues and going head to head against my Glock 19 or 26, puts rounds on target faster. I'm mystified just how that could be, since everyone knows a high bore access pistol can't beat a low bore like the Glock in speed shooting. Guess my P229 isn't impressed with the low bore thing, either. My XD sub compact eats everything. I believe the roll pin on top of slide behind the chamber may be a weak point, but it's easily replaceable and tapered so it can only go in one way.
