I picked up my new XD-40 Tactical from Steve last night. Today after doing some work at Magnolia's range I got to shoot my NEW TOY..... :)

The grip on the XD-40 feels good, but is different from the 1911s I am use to. The trigger stages easy, but the "fire pull" is a little heavy... but crisp. I understand there are "springs & things" that can make the trigger better, but I just need to get some more trigger time on my new XD-40. One trip to the range does not make a good judgement call...............




My VERY FIRST SHOT at 10yds..... :) Like with Neck and his 9mm pocket pistol on July 4th last year, I should have stopped after the first shot...... The aiming point was 6 o'clock. I would call that dead-on.........





The rest of the first 5rds (at 10yds standing)...... The black paster is 0.75" in diameter. This was shooting the top of the sights, not the 3-dots.





The next 5rds were shooting the 3-dots. Plus I slowed down a little...........





Then I did some 10rd rapid-fire strings.



Oh yeah...... A picture of my new baby............



The XD-40 Tactical (5") with 4 extra mags I bought in advance, plus two "TactiCOOL" mag pouches.... :) (free with the 4 mags).

One thing I feel "sucks" with the XD-40, the mags almost require a mag loader to load them. I am not use to that.........

Bottom line.......... I LIKE my new XD-40. Just need more trigger time with it.

Bought my XD-40 Monday night. Yesterday was the first time I actually had time to shoot it, and was I surprised at how good this pistol felt and how accurate it was. I really love mine! I think you will be pleased with it. :thumbup:

Way to go Sub! I love my XD-40. I got the 4 inch service model. Still love it! I want a 5 inch version in 9MM also.

Nice pistol, I had a XD-45 that was pretty sweet, but a friend wanted it. Knowing I was an old 1911 guy, he let me drool on a Sistema Colt for about 2 seconds LOL. Liked the XD just fine,but that was an offer I couldn't resist. Enjoy the new addition. :thumbup:

I love my XDs also, the service model is gettin a round count close to 15,000 now. Parker and I went to the 200 and 300yd lines to shoot rifles some after the match today. After a lil while of shootin we got the pistols out and let the gongs have it from afar. I think we finally hit it about the 200 or 300th shot :lol3:
Bad thing is, shootin the subcompact and hit it on the first mag. :cheers:

For some reason XD 45s keep showing up at my door. The grip feels better to me than the Glock's, and the guns point really well. My first test firing results a couple of years ago pretty much mirrored yours; being able to hit well right out of the box with a new gun is always a good sign.

Subgunfan, that mag loader is included with the gun for a very good reason--it's necessary.
