Very nice pics!!
I finally got to shoot the XD today - what an awesome gun!! The accuracy is excellent and the recoil is very manageable. No Hornady TAP rounds were to be found in my area, but I did find some Hornady Custom 230 gr JHP/XHT +P. Aside from the brass case instead of the nickel I cannot see much difference in the ballistics info.
From what I can tell, the XD should hold up to +P ammo when used sparingly. Does anybody have info about +P being bad or not recommended for the XD?
I definitely don't like the belt holster that comes with the gun; it is a pain to thread on to a belt and seems to flop around too much. My local shop does have an XD Gear paddle holster that I have been thinking about getting to use in conjunction with my IWB Minotar (which is still in production
). The Fobus that I have for my Taurus is great for slipping on and off for quick trips and what not. Does anybody have experience with the XD Gear brand paddle holster?
Thanks again for the info!
