A modern pistol in every sense, the XD is packed with bells and whistles but still affordable for the average shooter. The XD's legendary Point and Shoot Ergonomics combines natural pointability with a compact, contoured polymer grip, creating an instrument that feels more like a natural extension of your body than an object in your hand. The loaded chamber indicator allows the shooter to verify visually or by touch that there is a round in the chamber. The Ultra Safety Assurance Trigger System guards against accidental discharge from dropping or bumping by locking the XD's trigger in place until direct, rearward pressure is applied. A grip safety allows the XD to fire only when the shooter has a firm grip on the pistol. The Essentials package comes with one 13-round standard magazine, one 16-round extended magazine, a cable lock, a bore brush, and a hard plastic carrying case.
