My first gun was a HS2000 in the early 90s, that's what the XD was called before Springfield took over the importation duties. It was good for a first gun, had less recoil than my friend's G17, but I did get flyers, was not all that accurate. Functioning was perfect though, no problems at all. Cost me something like $265 back then (once SA took over importation it went up to the $400 range!). Also broke the ejector and the front sight, and had a couple of walking frame pins. Got fixed by the importer and I traded in afer about 2 years.
