Just got the Springfield XD9. Great Weapon!

I'm having a Hell of a time finding an airsoft replica to train with. Must be electric.

Anybody seen one yet?

You know, I like the feel of that weapon.
I may get one myself.
Glad to hear you like it.

Don't know about the airsoft version....

I didin't get the sub-compact. I got the 5" service model. Not much use for a sub-compact in California!

I love the Grip safety! And it's probably the easiest gun to dissasemble that I've ever seen.

A great gun!

I just got the 45. It shoots really really nice and smooth.

I'm looking for a tactial thigh holster for the 45 full compact. If anyone could give me websites or info on where to buy this.

Thanks all are well.

Hello.  I tried the XD9 shortly after they came out.  If interested, here are some observations:

As is mentioned in the linked article, mine had "first round flyer syndrome" but the ones I shot in more recent production have uniformly not.

I really like mine.

I seem to shoot really well one-handed with it. Not so good in a two-handed grip.

Of course that could just mean that I suck! ;D

Newbie on the forum, but I saw this thread and figured I would offer my 2.  Anyway, I have the XD 40 and I must say that it is a pleasure to use. The grip angle puts the pistol in a very natural position to fire - like that a lot!   The grip and trigger safety's are a strong point as well, and I have found the accuracy and the construction to be superior to most other polycarbonate pistols.  Breaking the thing down also takes about 4 seconds.   

Vitality, check out Blackhawk for a good tactical holster system - I have the Carbon Fiber paddle style SERPA Active Retention holser and it is top-notch.  Check it out.

I've only shot it in its service sized configuration, chambered in .357 Sig. I liked it, alot. Would definitely have one in 9mm or .45ACP.
