I new to the forum and the xd. I pick up an xd9sc for xmas. I have 300 rounds through it at this point and really like it. I like it better than my glock. I look foreard to modifying it and using it as a carry gun.
Like it or not, when the chips are down and lives are at stake, an armed citizen can be the "first responder." People who dont like guns invariably rely on people who have guns when their lives are in danger.
