    In the spirit of giving during the Holiday Season...the XD Forum Staff would like to announce a XD Firearm Trivia Contest for NON-PREMIUM members of the community...

    For the next 12 days ( Dec 13th thru Dec 24th ) I will post a firearm trivia question at 12 noon EST each day...


    The first 12 NON- Premium Members to correctly answer the trivia question of the day ( time/date stamp of post ) will have their names tossed into a hat.

    ** Members CANNOT submit their correct answers until exactly 6pm EST the same day of the question...in order for everyone to see the question and have a fair opportunity to answer **


    Voting will be cut-off at 1145 PM EST and then my lovely daughter will pick one (1) name from the 12 names in the hat and I will announce the winner by 12 MIDNIGHT that same day.


    The lucky winner will receive the gift of a Premium Membership (for 1 year) courtesy of the XD Forum Staff !!


    ===============================================

    Again...Thanks to all the membership for making the XD Forum "the best forum on the Internet"...!!


    ===============================================

    Disclaimer: The decision of the judge...ME...is final !! The answers to all the questions are sourced from Wikipedia. Thank you !!

    Springfield Armory Inc. is an importer and custom shop. The XD is really an HS2000 made by HS Produkt in Karlovac, Croatia.
