Default New purchase...

Just got it home this afternoon!

What's in the box!


XD(M) 9


Not the best photo of the OD Green (looks so much better in person)


And 1050 of his new firends:


Plan on running a patch or 2 through the barrel and getting to the range, ASAP.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Ooh nice. I'd take it apart and wipe it down and add a couple drops to the moving parts.

Then go shoot the holy living crap out of it!!!

Nice, I like OD XD's!

Ha Ha, yours isn't ripe either!

I have the XD45 in OD greeness. I thought it was odd at first, but it really grew on me.

I've wanted an OD XDm 9mm or 40sw for some time now...but I want the OD with the stainless slide. I love that look! Too bad they didn't make the XDm45 with that finish.

Some day...

Nice choice! The bad thing is that even with large cap magazines they seem to empty out very fast when taken out to have fun. I lucked out and got two extra mags from a forum member below cost, almost as cool as an OD green XDm!
