Shooting and showing the new XD Mod 2, a slightly improved version of the XD Subcompact. http://www.springfield-armory.com/ Thanks to Federal for the ammo: http://www.federalpremium.com/ Note: This new Grip has a really good feel to it, even though it's tapered down to where it's not ideal for my large hands. I think the vast majority of people who pick it up should think it really feels great. The texture is all in the perfect place, and unlike the typical "hard Polymer" grooves and cuts that are pretty useless in a grip, this actually provides some grip friction, like a Talon Grip does. I don't know why the polymer gun makers think all their creative little diamonds and slashes actually help. Actually, I think a perfectly smooth, even polished, polymer grip would give better hold than all these hard polymer angles and cuts, as with a smooth, varnished wood grip on an old S&W. Anyway, this new Grip Zone, as they call it, IS a step up.
