    Nothing wrong with the XD line of pistols!
    If I didn't already have a bunch of self-defense handguns I'm perfectly happy with, I'd be all over this.
    I always buy a couple extra mags for each gun I own, and that really adds to the cost of owning that gun.
    For somebody who is ready to buy their first carry gun, and they think they might want extra mags for it-- either for self-defense OR to use in action shooting games and contests like IDPA-- this deal would suit them fine.

    There are plenty of worse choices in a handgun. PLENTY. And, this is a smokin' deal

    Or could just be a marketing gimmick to get people to buy the XD/XD(M) before they realease the XD(M) compact after the first of the year. At least that's the rumor.

    In my experience from a sales perspective, I've sold 7-8 Glocks to every Sig, M&P, FN and XD combined. The simple fact is the guns that are selling well don't require a rebate.

    Your bias towards Glock wouldn't have anything to do with your sales numbers, would it? No doubt that Glock is a fine weapon and people love them. But, that's no reason to overlook other fine weapons.

    Quite the contrary. While I like my Glocks, in a head to head comparison against other brands the Glocks are usually chosen. Price (against Sig and M&P), name recognition (XD and Sig) and the fact that most of the police departments use them are strong selling points. For the average person who walks in off the street or for a first time purchase Glocks are USUALLY asked about first. Glock enjoys a dominance of the handgun market and it does have benefits for selling guns. Just to put things in perspective, over half of the gun sales made are to people that don't surf gun websites/forums or read Guns and Ammo. I can't tell you how many times I've had someone say that my local PD or SO carries a Glock or Sig or M&P. That sells more guns that most advertisements in magazines. Relatives owning a particular gun also sells guns. Any personal bias that I have affects maybe a 1/3 of the guns I sell. Just saying... :roll:

    Saw this on the XDTalk forum. Just thought I'd share.
    LP.
    ETA: in reference to a new XD(M) Compact.

    Good Afternoon,

    Thank you for your email.
    Yes, it is coming soon. We were made aware of that today. Please keep watching the web sight for further updates as we do NOT have the information ourselves yet. They are telling us it will be on the Web site next week. I think it sounds like it may be exciting though.

    Thank you, Debi
