Well hopefully we don't have too many anti-2nd amendment people in here, and if we do, could we keep all the commotion to a tiny peep?

Anyways, here's my newly acquired piece.

Nice pics. I think #2 would be better with a little more DOF to get the emblem all in focus.

I didn't realize Springfield manufactured in Croatia.

Nice. I like the Springfield. I sold my HK 9mm USP a few months ago. I just picked up the Kimber PRO TLE II (LG) .45. I bought that to carry concealed.

Those Kimbers are very nice! Congrats on the purchase. Do you find the weight a little heavy for concealing though? I wanted to conceal this, but it seems I may have to get somethign smaller...

Justin, awesome shot, I need to do some of my 9 standing up! But why did you white out the mags?

The mags are polished metal, the image blew them out as too reflective. A different background would have prevented this, but obviously wouldn't give the same look.

I highly doubt a different background would have changed the blowing out of the mags. Only changing the exposure would be able to do that. Well let's wait to see what Justin says.

Glocks are nice! Be sure to post some pics of yours and post the link here!

I love the way the XD shoots, been forever since I shot a gun, and when I took this out, it was natural. Accuracy was really impressive considering I'm no marksman. I will have to do some pics with the targets as the bg sometime.

You gun people make me sick. I'll never understand why you'd want to own or even show a gun on such a forum, good grief.... Oh, wait a minute, I'm a gun person too, so never mind! :lol: (sorry, couldn't resist after reading what you put about the Second Amendment!)

Good looking pictures of a really nice looking pistol! Did you have an XD before you bought the XD(M)? Just wondering what you think of the XD(M) compared to the original. One of my primary carry pieces is one of their XD .45acp Tactical Compact models (five inch barrel, compact grip), I love this gun! Again, nice pictures of it, well done.

Thanks Cobra, the beginning of your post had me about to go off! lol

I held the XD and the only real differences were the hand grip. The M version has a couple extra little features, match barrel, and only available in one size. No compact versions.

This one has a 19+1 capacity (9mm) which I love!

LOL - The mags are blown out because I am terrible with the lightbox!!

I didn't even notice how bad they were until I got to editing and by then it was too late.
:oops:
