It is pure deadly sweetness. Like all the best women. :)

Range report?

How is the point, how is the trigger and how does it group?

It looks like a Springfield version of a Glock + a grip safety.

The backstrap looks curvy - how does it feel?

I've never owned a 9mm, but that might change sometime if I decide to convert my gun to 9x25 Dillon. :-)


Yes for sure, will post one up before long. So far can say it was a gun made in heaven.

Is there any design of this style?

Damn, you beat me to it, and ditto on XD owners loving them. I've never shot one, but they feel great and seem to be really solid pistols.

For those who don't know, the XD-9 is the Croatian HS2000, sold under license in the U.S. by Springfield Armory. The HS2000 is the standard issue handgun for the Croatian military and (I think) police.

My first shooter was a Smith and Wesson alloy frame with tritium sites and a 20 load magazine. I can break it down and reassemble in seconds. I hit what I aim at and it used 9mm. If you shoot a 10mm Glock you will have to refinance your home to fill up one mag. Paper dies just as certainly as with a 9mm.

The lesson is. Shoot what works for you.

I have the option of shooting .22, 9mm, 9x25, 7.62x25, .40 s&w or 10mm with my gun...in most cases, just a barrel swap, in some it requires additional stuff.

All my 10mm I hand load or reload and the cases last a very long time, even mucho powerful rounds in the 800+ foot pounds range. Reloading takes time, but I enjoy it as an occasional past time. Keep 200 on hand, load 200 more, rotate stock as needed. :-)
