    I could be wrong, but I don't think these have hit the shelves yet.

    I held it at the SHOT show. It's a very small 45 ( of course)

    It was cool seeing rob leatham though. Lol

    I just finished reading an article about it in the latest Guns & Ammo magazine. Looks good!

    I held it at Shot Show and Shot it a few weeks ago here in Vegas at a Springfield demo shoot.

    Here is the short video I took. The line was really long so I couldnt do a full review. I like it though. I might even buy it just because its tiny and a 45acp polymer semiauto thats less than an inch wide. Pretty unique right now. I might get one in 9mm.

    I just placed an order for a bi-tone model with my distributor. They are still on a wish list as they have not shipped yet. I'm hoping the bi-tones aren't a long way behind the all black model.
    This just may replace my 27 as my every day carry.

    Bought an XD .45ACP (Service) about two weeks ago. Put about 100 rounds through it. It shoots a bit low, but that's easy to adjust with a higher point-of-aim. It is the easiest pistol to field strip that I've ever owned. It has a minimum of internal parts, and feels good in my hand. Seems to be quite durable and forgiving.

    The grip is longer than my G19 or HK 45C, but the mag holds 13 rounds of rational arguement. It conceals best with a holster that sits very tightly against your body. Toss or sell the crappy plastic XD holster and mag carrier and get somethiong from Galco or Dragon Leatherworks.

    Hope these comments assit.

    Nutnfancy has a review of the Shot Show and Rob Leatham showing it off. Looks pretty slick. I think it's a little smaller than the G36, but the thought process is along the same lines.

    This is not the XDs you're looking for. It can go about its business. Move along.

    It is noticeably smaller than the 36. It should be a very good seller. I like my 36, don't care if others like it or not.

    Big Ditto's!

    I have gone to two local gun stores; neither has one in stock, yet.

    Having read that shooting it does not punish the shooter, and that it is so concealable, I just have to check this one out!
