I have the Mod 2.0 45 ACP and the XDM 4.5 9mm.... cannot say they are my favorite pistols but, they are far from junk for sure.
The XDM 4.5 is a great pistol for starters it seems.. I hand it to kids and even adults that usually cannot hit the target at all and they seem like shoot it alot better than other models.

Xd Mod 2 Service 9mm(4") owner checking in. Mine runs like a top, and even likes my handloads. It also fits my hand like a glove, and hits where I point it. I'm close to the 5K mark downrange on it, and hardly any wear on the rails at all. Only thing I plan to do is order a night sight to replace the front sight with later. This one is my EDC, and also fits in my Durango's center console with room for a double mag pouch.

Ended up finding a 3.8 compact, 2 tone, at Sportsman Warehouse for 399.00

They had the same pistol in all black for 547.00. Guys doesn't know why the 2tone is on sale.

They had an OSP model with no extra red dot/halo thing site, just the plates for 600+. I will get more use out of the compact model. Had an FDE model with the extended barrel that was sweet, but never going to get a stamp for the silencer, so, whats the use.


I don't do the internet ordering firearm thing. No one local to me to ship them to and I'm lazy.

^^ counter guys says it's all Sportsman Warehouses that have them on sale for 399.

Comes with 2 extra grip pieces, 1 13rd flush mag, 1 19rd mag with adapter and 2 extra 19 rd mag adaptors. Also 2 extra fiber optic pieces 1 yellow and 1 red.

I like it a lot. Damn sure feels good in the hand.

It wasn't a big deal to me in the first place, and I'm not going to do the Anties' bidding by going to bat against a gun company by trying to put them out of business, put the 2A loving employees out of work, and to prevent those, like many in this thread, who like their firearms from being able to buy them all because a couple of suits who had their backs against the wall tried to do what they thought was best from their company at that time....

Same goes for any other company. I'll go to bat against them if they're going against gun rights, but if they see the light, change, and start to support our cause, I don't see the point in continuing to blacklist them FOREVER...
Ita easy to spot the "Brand" and attack them, but often when these kinds of asshat directions are taken its by an individua or individualsl who probably shouldnt have been given that power and have long since moved on.

In SC you say? There are probably a whole bunch of FFL dealers in your zip code that would be happy to do an online transfer for you. Heck, there might even be a local guy out of his basement around the corner from you. Here in MI, I have two under a mile from me that are out of their home.

sig, just for future reference, if you Google 'FFL dealer' or 'ffl finder' or 'ff locator' you will get several websites that aggregate FFL dealers by zip code. All you have to do is enter your zip code. Gunbroker has a good one:
