Thanks to all the practical pistol matches I watched this year I decided that I needed a pistol of my own to shoot. Well today on my way home I picked up my Springfield XD 40 at Gander Mountain. Good news is that I really like the ergonomics of the pistol so far and it seems pretty well put together. Not so good news is I can't seem to find any magazines or a holster for it. I am needing a couple more 12 round mags and one of the plastic holsters for it. Where is a good place to get these things from? I found a holster on Midway, but they want $8.35 to ship it, and another $5.50 to ship 2 magazines when they come in. I like ordering online because I can almost always find great deals, but problem is I don't know where to look. Do you fellas have any secret shopping spots? Go easy on me though, I just laid out more money than I had planned on for the pistol and don't have a lot of budget left for mags/holster. The holster I found on Midway was less than $14 and the mags were $17.something.

Congrats on the XD. I have an XD-9 myself. The only major complaint out there seems to be the slide finish. Some have problems with it, some don't. I find it pretty prone to rusting unless I'm very careful to wipe off fingerprints.

I use a G-code holster and love it. High quality and very reasonable price. Got mine from Gunner's Alley. Great service and good prices. I recommend you call your order in. Doing an internet order, they don't seem to let you know if something is on backorder. On the phone, they're great.

www.hs2000talk.com/ is the 'Arfcom' of the XD world. Lots of good info there. All of their board sponsers are good to order from.

Made in Wisconsin by Mark Miller. Excellent gear at reasonable prices. If you do not already know Mark from IPSC or IDPA talk to Jay Rock he will introduce you. Whenever possible support your local shops. By the time you pay shipping you might as well by local anyway.

So what am I? Chopped liver?

S&W mags are supposed to work (never tried it myself), but you have to modify them by cutting an extra hole in the front of the mag. Should still work in a Smith after the mod.

Full capacity XD mags are $23 right now and available at www.pistol-gear.com and other places.

I heard something about how you can relatively easily modify beretta mags too...at least for the XD-9. I picked one up in early August, and haven't had a single malfunction yet.

G.A.S. $26.99

CDNN $24.99

How dare you modify perfectly good Beretta Mags! Just think of me as a wayword home for Beretta mags. Bad Duck, Bad Duck.

plan_b: The Mach 2 stuff looks nice. Formed Kydex (not injection molded), etc. I like to support the local businesses as much as possible. Do you know of any reviews out there on this gear? Or how about posting a mini review here? How does it compare to other brands out there like: Blade Tec, G-code, Comp-Tac, etc? How about their mag carriers? (No pics on thier site).
