Hey all, I just bought a new XD 9mm today. It's my first handgun, although I am no stranger to guns; far from an expert though. I picked up some range rounds, some higher quality rounds for actual use, and an Uncle Mikes holster. Any tips for a pistol newb like myself with the XD? I was reading the manual, and it noted on ported models, but didn't say which ones were. I am unsure how to tell, but is this model ported? I loaded a magazine, all 16 rounds, and my god was it hard to get the last few rounds in there. How is this speed-loader supposed to work, I couldn't seem to get any rounds in while using it. Damn near broke my finger trying to get round #16 in the magazine too. Going to the range in the morning to try it out. Also, I always bring pics!
