My new toy.
I have had a Springfield XD .40 Subcompact for some time now and am very pleased with its functionality. I found out that a friend of mine was wanting to sell his XD 4" Service Model. I made him an offer that I thought he would find too low but he was happy to take it. I paid him $400 for the pistol, two 12 round magazines, and a 250 round box of UMC .40 ammunition that he fired 7 rounds out of. I didn't really need it but I just couldn't stand to think that it would fall into the hands of someone that wouldn't appreciate it as much as me.Dennis Monk

Freedom is one of the deepest and noblest aspirations of the human spirit.
There is a reason that conservatives are known as "The Right".
