WOOT!

Check it out - Springfield Armory

I forsee a bunch of XD 9mm's and .40's for sale on the EE soon

The tactical with a Canyon Creek trigger job in stainless will be the Glock-killer.

awesome. I allready have too many .45's though.

I may pick one up soon in 9mm or something.

That's too bad. I find the XD grip way too small to even fully engage the grip safety.

That's the opposite of my problem. The darn Glock .45 is just TOO FRICKIN BIG for most mortal hands.

I'm guessing that your sporting a set of meathooks for hands, huh

The XD is ghey, but this is less ghey than the Uber ghey XD in .45GAP

The .45GAP- ultimate solution for small hands and small penis

With this new XD, the new HK45 and the new S&W M&P coming the 45ACP world is about to become VERY interesting

Yeah, no kidding. I mean, it's built really well, and it's been around for years and is reliable and everything, and it does come with a lifetime warranty, and it's comfortable and accurate, but other than that, totally fucking ghey.

btw, who the fuck are you?

I shall be waiting for a 5inch in OD . . . . . . . .


This is some good news!

That funny sound you might be noticing is the XD .45 GAP owners collectively kicking themselves in the ass.

Why would they? Do you think the XD in 45 acp with a 14 round capacity is gonna magically fit in a 9mm sized frame? Not likely. The GAP still serves a purpose for those who dont like a handgun grip like a 2x4.

How many of 'em bought the GAP thinking SA would never come out with an ACP version? The majority, I'd venture to guess.

The gun isn't even out yet and you're already calling the grip a 2x4.

For those that bought the XD GAP thinking the 45 would never come out will be faced with a dilema.
The fact of the matter is that the 45 GAP will always be able to be fit in a 9/40 frame.

I dont think one has to posess special powers to predict that 14 rounds (probably 13 in the mag) of 45 acp in any handgun is going to have a rather large grip.

I'm sure that the grip will be bigger than a 9/40, but it will definitely be smaller than the frickin Glock 2x4 grip.

Actually, it loks about as big as the Glock 9mm . . . Glocks have VERY large grips for the size of the caliber.

We'll see in January

You poor-baby, do you have an emotional boo-boo?

I guess the XD is not bad for a repackaged $200 Croatian pistol... I won't give any fod to an HS 2000 owner, but those who waited until it was re-badged by Springfield (Not THE Springfield Armory)... well, you know... are advertising fodder.

Thanks for shitting on my thread . . . aren't you supposed to be waiting under a bridge somewhere?

Anyway, we'll see come January. I'm betting the tactical is going to be the shit.

My only complaint was the finish on the slide because it isn't very durable.
