Can we get this posted to every entry and exit to the White House and halls of Congress. Of course they would add about a thousand pages full of crap. They should add it to the health bill, because...

9 mm XD compact.

Interesting, in theory I rented an XDcompact 9mm for a class I took. If it was instead a full sized XD that would explain why it was so smooth and easy to shoot. I decided on a .45 and that's what...

In hand gun training class I shot an XDcompact in 9 mm and then shot the same version in .45 with my bother. I loved the 9, but felt comfortable with the .45 so that is what I bought. Later my son...

Thought I'd introduce my new avatar

This is my brother and I in about 1948. Our rifles and pistols were manufactured in our basement by our father. We'll call it Norwegian Arms and the materials were the best wood he could find. He...

new carry firearm

Hi,
Just thought I'd relay my experience in changing my carry firearm. I have been carrying my .38 special in a fanny pack (I'm old and no one would guess I'm packing) for about 3 months now. I...

I hadn't been to the range for months with the .38 I had, but got some snap caps and practiced in the basement. That's better than nothing and kinda fun too.

Wish your mother well and hang in...

Thanks folks,
We went to the range today and had a great time! My only complaint was that my son is leaning towards a Glock, but they have to fly free at some point. He has a friend that will sell...

Hi Folks,

Thanks folks,
I thought that was all ok, but if no one had seen those problems before, I would take it back to the shop. As an ex quality technician I like a tool that is robust enough to survive a...

velcrow

I am going to try a similar thing but glue velcrow to the aluminum instead of a slot. In this way I may be able to use the extra holster I purchased with my fanny pack. When I get a proper holster...

XD compact questions
