I Got A New Gun


After my class at KRTraining I decided I needed a new gun, so on Buy A Gun Day I ordered one.

I knew I wanted a Springfield XD in 9mm. I decided I wanted the XDm which as a buddy put it is, XD 2.0. Looking around I decided I wanted the Bitone version, though color wasn’t my primary concern, and I didn’t want the 3.8 version, I wanted the full 4 inch barrel. I looked around locally and could only find the 3.8.

I also knew when I bought it I was going to send it to Springer Precision to have new sights and a new trigger put on it. My friend Hosi again gave me good advice and told me to just buy the gun from Springer. So I called them and they had the gun, for less than I’d seen the 3.8 for locally. I ordered it and told them to do the sights and trigger before they sent it to me.

I got the Dawson Precision Adjustable Front Sight and fixed rear site. This front site has a red fiber optic in it and is very easy to find when you are bringing the gun up.

I got the competition trigger at 3.5 lbs, which I may wish was lighter.

They got the gun last week and did the install and shipped it out. I got a call from my buddy at Talon Arms they had received it on Monday. Of course I left work early and picked it up.

Shooting the 9mm seems like shooting 22 after my 45. The magazine capacity is incredible (19). I put almost a whole box of ammo in the 2 mags it came with.

It is very smooth. Which I don’t know exactly how to describe other than smooth.

I was going to post a picture but WordPress is giving me trouble but its a pretty gun too.
