Was at the gun store yesterday and picked up an all black 4'' xd 45. with all the gear, and 2 13 rd. mags. A guy won the gun in a raffle and wanted something else, so he turned it back in as a trade in. Its not as smooth as my 1911, and it seems to have alot more "bite". The 1911 just feels more gentile to the shooter. But, it is accurate. Surprisingly accurate. I probably have 200 rds. thru it and it shot them all, fmj. s/wadcutter, and jhp. The jury is still out, but it has a real feel of dependability to me. Any ways, it had never been shot till I got it. I paid $450 for it tax and all. Did I make a good, great, or ok, deal? If I knew how, I would post pics.
