Springfield XD 9mm : What Everybody Ought to Know


Well from time to time something drastic comes along uprooting long-held beliefs and prejudices, for me that was the Springfield XD9

A few months ago I was lusting over the contents of a display case of various handguns at the local sporting goods store. When the Springfield XD9 caught my eye and I had to take a look. When the grip touched my hand I felt that spark, you know the one, like a teenage boy in love for the first time.  I had to have it. 

After paying the required 20% down the owner put the pistol in lay away. I worked and saved and worked some more, putting every dollar I could spare toward paying off the debt.  After about two months of dedication and sacrifice the bill was paid in full and I was the owner of a brand new toy. 

While I still love the Glock, I think the Springfield XD is better than anything that came before it. The Springfield XD9 Incorporates the best of both the Glock and SIG with a few of its own upgrades thrown in for good measure.

I think there must be a secret cabal at your site called the "illiterati." 

The word is "touted."
