You'll never look at your XDs the same way, I promise you that. The 1911 has a way of making a marksman out of the worst shooters out there. (Getting into infomercial territory, moving on! :wink Congrats on your new 1911! Post pics and a range report if you can! People on this forum seem to be really helpful, so if you run into any troubles with the 1911 design either ask on the forum or PM me. Good luck!
