Default Did it again

Well, I went to the gun show today and brought home a new XD sub compact 9 in OD, went ahead and picked up a pearce grip extension for it along with a box of remington golden sabre +p's. Figured I'd post a few pics of the ladies together...I hope everyone had a great father's day.
I think I've nipped the handgun bug for a while, at least I hope

I am insanely jealous.

I only have on XD-9. No XDm pistols yet and the recent purchase of my TRP means that a purchase in the near future is unlikely to be approved my my second in command. She happens to have strict financial oversight over any large purchases.

Now there's a man who knows what he likes.

The OD green xd's are great. This one used to be mine and now belongs to a friend.

NICE!!!!

I actually went to another store to compare prices & color availability when the clerk at the first store said all they had in a 5" XD45 was a OD green one. I came back and picked it up & the color has really grown on me, especially since the comparable model in black, at the other store was an even $100 more.

Any chance of a hands-on pic for scale?

Hmm that's weird, orange

Why was the black model pricier? Can't work that one out at all!


Really nice guns, jwhirl. I love the look of XDms...and would get one in a shot if my Govt wasn't so afraid of handguns with barrels shorter than 5". Oh yeah 10.5mm makes so much difference, I forgot.

I think that can be arranged. I'll take some pics and post them later when I get home.

The OD green one was at a locally-owned sporting goods store, and the all black one was at a nearby Gander Mountain (one store of a large chain). The locally-owned place just had a better price. I later heard that the OD green & other non-black colors generally sold for a tiny bit more than the all black models. I was also surprised by the $100 difference in price at two different stores in the same town.

Thanks! A friend is looking for a compact/carry pistol & i think a scale pic would help in the search.

Hey that's the beauty of capitalism, huh!


Never ceases to amuse me how you guys can buy guns at a "sporting goods store" or large chain like Walmart etc. You can't imagine how weird that sounds to an outsider
