I know I am late in posting this, but it is better late than never. I wanted to show off how reliable the Springfield XD is right out of the box. I wanted to go shoot it the day that Fed Ex deliverd it, but I had too much ministry to do that day. Once I finally got to the range, I was not disappointed at all. My first shot was a perfect 10 at seven yards. A little higher and to the right of dead center, but a ten none the less.
My next five shots were also tens. Still a little high except for one shot that I jerked. I felt it when I shot it and was thankful that I did not jerk it as much as I thought I did. A little more and it would have been a nine. That big tear in the top middle is two rounds. It doesn’t show up on the picture very well, but there are two grease rings where the paper is folder back
I figured, what the heck, after shooting six perfect shots, I might as well just keeep shooting tens with the whole box… so I did.
This is the first time I’ve ever shot tens with one whole box of ammo. I’ve had some close ones before, but never one where all of the grease rings are breaking the line of the ten spot. I am VERY happy with my new Springfield XD.
