Hello everyone, I live in Upstate NewYork and I own a XD 40 cal. in Black .I bought it when they first came out and it has been flawless not a single problem. Hope others have had the same luck. I originally bought a Glock 22 in 40 cal but didnt like the ergonomics of it so I traded it in for the XD and have been happy very with it. I own several other handguns and shoot IDPA so I needed something reliable that I felt comfortable with. I would have to say I have around 100,000 rounds through this gun and like I said not a single problem.
