They shot the damn thing then buffed it out using steel wool . I mean it is just a 22 ... but christ ... after all the other **** it had been through ... and went through after ...
Poor handgun . I hope when he finally breaks it he disassembles it and puts it in a shadow box with a plaque and photo's of it's busy life around it .

At roughly 7,000 rounds, I dropped the XD hard, onto cement, from a height of about 3 1/2 feet, right onto its cocking indicator. I then dropped it several more times, loaded, while standing behind cover in a completely safe environment. And I even threw it off the side of a mountain, sending it bouncing and hurtling down the steep slope about 100 feet.
Those tests are crazy. Now i want a glock and an XD.

One for each hand? Then we can start calling you Neo! Ha ha!
if you don't like the feel of the glock in your hand, a rubber grip helps alot. a plus two on the mag also helps it fit larger hands.
The biggest issue for me with Glocks has always been the grip angle and the lack of anything that actually resembles a safety, the grip angle being the larger issue of the two.
They certainly do shoot well, though, in spite of those shortcomings.
the only glock i've ever felt comfortable using was the compact .40 (forget the #)... the other ones just never sat right with me either in the grip department.
also, i dunno why, but the sights bothered me. i must be strange in the head or something.
anyway, my review and video of the H&K compact .40 P2000 coming up soon.
It's the Glock 23. I own one, and I'll admit it, I can't hit the broad side of a barn with it.
