Default You Guys Convinced Me.

I bought an XD-9 today. I will say one thing, coming from shooting 1911's in the military and of late a .380 subcompact. It takes a hell of a lot longer to load that thing than it does to empty it!
I've got some work to do on my grip, but the heft and the balance of it make for an easy recovery to the sight picture (Which is great with the dots.) Trigger pull is sweet, it's relatively quiet, and negligible recoil. Gork likes!

Pick up a H&K mag loader that magazine will be a breeze to load then .

Got one with it (Not H&K) and double-thumbing seems just as quick, although I haven't given it a fair shake yet. Also came with a holster and spare mag holder (Double) in a case, so I've got plastic to spare.

Congrats! Excellent choice!

Practice with the magazine loader that came with the gun. You'll get faster.
