The kit for XDs is the Powder River trigger kit. I've shot a couple with this installed and it's a huge improvement over the stock trigger.

i own a lot of pistols and the xd is my favorite for a carry piece. without bragging, because i am a bad shot, the pistol places bullets in a 5 gal bucket off hand at 115 yrds. i have trouble doing that with a lot of my rifles (parkinsons) so that says a lot about the pistol.

Uh.

Do you have some pictures of this occurring? A video would be great.

Because that is some serious OFF HAND shooting...

Yeah, that's incredible shooting, I'd love to see a video, too, if you are able.

Was that a typo? 115 yds? Offhand? I'm gonna go out on a limb here and call B.S.

I love my XD and will agree it is very accurate but 115yds?? I'm waving the flag too.

As far as malfunctioning, I have put thousands of rounds thru my XD45 and not had so much as a single malfunction. As JD mentioned limp wristing is possible with any semi auto but I don't think you'll have any problems if you select the XD has your home defense weapon. The trigger does have some take up, but I have had no problems shooting accurately with a stock trigger. I do plan on installing the trigger kit mentioned in an earlier post in the near future.

It's not real hard to shoot gallon milk jugs filled with water at 100 yards from a rested position with a .44 magnum-can hit them at least 1/2 the time, but a .45acp @ 115 yards OFFHAND?? You're a MUCH better shot than I am. A 5 gallon bucket is a big target however I can't shoot anywhere that good offhand. That's awesome shooting.

I missed a squirrel offhand with my remington 597 this weekend at 15yards............ I did hit three others at much greater distances though, go figure.

115yards consistently with a .45acpp offhand.........let's see!
