Never said you couldn’t find a good deal on an XD. But by and large, I see the XD selling for $550-$600 for a sub $300 pistol. 300% in my example may be an over-exaggeration, but the fact remains of a ridiculous price hike once Springfield put their name on it. The HS2000, depending on model, caliber, barrel length, sold for $215-$300 before Springfield bought them. Big price increase from $215-$550+. People didn’t and still don’t seem to care because it says “Springfield” on it, and to them that’s worth the money. To me, it’s not.
"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." - Thomas Jefferson, 1776
