Cool...mine is OD green...gonna see if I can find a similar color to use.

XD 45 is the best home defense pistol. My wife shot mine and loves it. I think we're buying a new one for us.

I just finished coloring all the numbers/symbols on it. Turned out SWEET!

Sorry the pics aren't that good. My iPhone camera has kinda sucked sense the last update.
How did you color, looks good!
