    9-mil pistols getting harder to find. Three LGS in my area had a combined 5 available. I snapped up this Springfield XD Mod 2 9mm, brand new, for $490 out the door. Ran 100 rounds beautifully. XD's are underrated. Try one, you'll like it!
    What's on your wish list?

    Did you buy one just because they are scarce? I tend not to buy when supply is low. Did you even want an XD Mod2 or just buy what was there?

    PSA seems to be sending me sales on 9mm pistols daily and my local shops are stocked just fine

    I realize I didn't answer the OP question.

    The only 9mm on my list is a backup Wilson EDC X9, possibly a 5" but most likely another 4".

    But before that I've been obsessing over moving into the 6.5 Grendel AR game, hopefully before deer season.

    Also, nice XD!

    Me too, first polymer gun was a 4" XD9. Very solid gun. Just sold it to finance my first 1911 and the rest was history.

    Thought for a bit I was gonna get that XD back but someone else wanted it more so I let him have it.

    I have a 9mm xds. And a 45 acp mod 2 xd. That holds a lot of 45 acp.

    I have way more 9mm pistols than i need

    I am good on 9mms. Need to pick me up a couple in calibers I don't have.

    I have way too many 9mm pistols---some I haven't even shot yet---with a couple Ruger carbines thrown in for good measure.

    Heck, I have more 9mm's than I have .22's.

    I want an AR next, then maybe a nice 9mm PCC.

    But first, I need to find some 124gr JHPs.

    I was in the market for a 9 and wanted a Glock 45 but none to be had. Very happy with the XD Mod 2.

    lots of criticism over "grip zone" but fact is that it's a great grip and your hand covers it up. :cat:

    I find it amusing but I agree that it doesn't matter. I hope they never change it.

    If I recall correctly you are in northern WI, last I checked Bullseye in Marshfield had a 45 in stock.

    Or shoot me a message and I have a 19X I could consider getting rid of, if you are still interested.

    Deep concealment equals LCP.
    Woods equals G20 or G29.
    Daily edc equals Shield 45.
    Nightstand equals G19.
    Can't see anything else I want or need. Haven't gun shopped in about a year.

    Congrats on the XD. Very nice pistol. I have an XD45 I really like.

    Don't really need any new 9mms, or any other calibers for that matter, at this time. But I am a sucker for good deals, and may grab something I don't need if the price is right.
