Did you shoot the XD or the XDM? Mine is an XDM 4.5" 40 cal. I'm not sure what the differences are between the two, but I love everything about the XDM action; trigger, slide, magazine, etc. Everyone (with much more knowledge and experience than me) who's shot it has said it's a great pistol. Buttery smooth, and very much comparable to a Glock IMO. Now the M&P Shield is another story . . .I love my 556...How do you like the trigger on the XD? I'm looking at them now that they were approved in MA. Shot one in the past didn't really care for the trigger but I love the look and feel of it and figured I can do a trigger kit at some point. The XD is the reason I went out and got my LTC, saw it on a magazine in CVS one day and said I have to have it, got my LTC then found out I couldn't even get it because it wasn't MA approved. Then I fell in love with Rugers, I have a SR40C, the 556 and shopping for a SR1911 Talo edition(so sexy!).
So they approve the 556 but not the XD(M) pistols? That's some nutty logic! :damn:
