Congrats! You've picked up a fine weapon!! Give it about 500 rounds to break in and it will really come to life.

So, what size is it? Either way you can't go wrong! Xd40's are in top class for the price range. Let's see some pics and a range report!

well i took my little brother out to shoot the .22 and decided once we were done id shoot the 50 rounds i had brought with me. i was a little nervous at first but nothing major just my first time shooting a small gun. that is my favorite gun now i went and bought another 50 rounds and only left because i had work. i loved shooting it. it felt solid in my hand and once i got the hang of it i was able to group them all within a 6in circle.

Well, there you go. You'll only get better with practice.
