Yeah I got a buddy that makes claims like that and he says 60 yards and I still pull the BS card. 115 yards no way.

My XD45 Service is an animal. I can put 3-shots into a baseball at 15 ft. with a draw and shoot. I honestly feel this pistol will be one of the greats for this century.

I'll give you a soccer ball (maybe junior)... But with all Springfield's I think they get more accurate with usage. The obvious factor is individual comfort w/ the gun and they just seem to loosen up w/ use. When I first took mine out. I wasn't happy with its/my accuracy. Now every time I got out (usually 150-200 rounds/session) it (or I) gets better.

I love to shoot this gun and still have had no malfunctions whatsoever. I've been shooting it fairly regularly as my schedule allows since I purchased in the first quarter of '09. Kinda lost track of exactly how many rounds, but it only takes 10 min to give it a good cleaning after usage. I have heard mixed opinions as to how much and what kind of lubricant to use, but it seems with adequate lubrication, its that much quicker and easier to clean out the gunk.

I trust this firearm. I don't say that often in reference to semi's.

I have shot both of my XD's just about anyway that I could think of to try and get them to fail. I ended up going through about 3k rds and never had a failure.

But as far as shooting a 115yds off hand with a pistol. I can see you lobbing rounds down range and scarying people but actually hitting a target I find it hard to believe but then again you never know. I have shot at a steel target at 125 rds with a Sig 9mm hit it 1 out of 5 times sometimes more sometimes less. That was just for fun. I would not waste ammo on that kind of pray and spray shooting. Off hand shooting at 50yds I would believe with out a doubt, 115yrds??

I have used Miltec (dry lube) following the instructions on the package and have not been disappointed.

I had a DI that used to tell me that you can never have to much lube. Yet if your weapon gets to hot from not enough oil THEN you have a problem.

AND yes the more oil you have the easier it is to clean. I use CLP on most of my weapon.

Believe it or not everything will break or jam at one time or another if it is mechanical. Be it Glock, Colt, Kimber, Springfield, etc.
