I've got a XD-45 ACP 5" Tactical on order. No body has any in stock anywhere just about.

Would really like OD Green but those are impossible to find. Gonna settle for a black or a Flat Dark Earth if they can find one.

These things must be popular eh?

If Daniel says it's good, it's gotta be.

I so can't wait to get it and firing it. It'll be my first pistol. You can bet picts will be forthcoming.

Ugh, no one can find any 5" Tacticals around.

I'm ALMOST tempted to just give up and get a 4" Service since they're everywhere but I really really want the 5" :(

I love the XD's and I thought that I wouldn't before I shot them. I'm not a big fan of striker fired pistols and don't like grip safties. But after shooting one I found it's the best "feeling" pistol in my big goofy hands. I was going to get a 5" but after shooting the 4" & 5" a few times back to back...I'm going to go with a Black 4" ported XD .45 I like the recoil spring in the 4" a lot better. It's a two piece type model.
It's also a captured recoil spring on the 4" and smaller.

They make the ported 4" in .45ACP?

YAY! Looks like they finally got one!

Now I just gotta find money...

Well went and looked at it tonight. She's a beauty! It's a black one... Not quite what I wanted but I can always re-coat the polymer.

It'll be mine next week! I can't wait!

Finally got it out and shot it. I love this thing. The sights are so natural it's amazing. And it's pretty accurate too.

My buddy came over and he's got a well used 9mm Service (4" barrel) that he claims has the "Tactical" spring. He said "XD's suck, I can't hit the side of a barn with mine." Everyone shot the .45ACP and promptly told him that he must be some kind of sucky shot, or his XD is terribly worn out :D

I'm sold on the XD. The 9mm model looked like the baby of my .45.
