    Im in VA, just outside of DC. Just bought my first XD .40 service. 2nd pistol. More of a long gun man. Love my Remington. Search and searched.... went with the Springfield Armory over the Glock. Just felt better. Hope I made the right choice. Anything I need to know?

    Welcome Mon. The more I study, the more I want a Springfield!!

    Why do gangsters shoot holding their handguns flat?
    Because that's the way it came out of the box!!!

    Hey jj, welcome to the forum. I'm not a big guy, (5'8" 175 lbs), and I have small hands. Like you, the XD series just felt better to me. I also have the .40 Service model and love it. You won't be disappointed...

    I'm from Northern Va as well. Did you buy your XD for fun at the range or for self defense?

    I bought it to carry. It is going to sound stupid but I intended to get the XDm. But got the XD in error. So I will continue to carry my SW bodyguard untill I get the XDm. Stupid mistake because I was in a rush. So in a long winded answer... for the range now.
