    I've been thinking about getting one because I want a full size handgun. I'm still undecided on 9mm (19+1 capacity) or .40cal (16+1 capacity) based on ammo consolidation or going bigger caliber. I already own an XD9 SC.

    .40 is .05" bigger than 9mm.

    Why not sell the XD9 if youre considering the XD-M 9?

    I carry the XD9 SC daily, I probably wouldn't carry the XD-M daily.

    Size difference:

    I shot with a guy a couple weekends ago shooting the XDM 9mm in USPSA. I seem to recall he shot it very well and it did not have a single hiccup. He won the division that week.

    I own both SC and XD(m) in 9mm.

    I bought the xdm mostly for IPSC and IDPA but love shooting it at the straight range too.

    I might try carrying the xdm later on, but my SC is super comfortable as it is.

    I bought it in 9mm because of ammo cost and transferability between guns.

    I recently got an XDm and really like it. Trigger is good from the factory and can be made REALLY nice. It is replacing my Glock's. Very accurate and reliable.

    I have an XD-45 and I absolutely LOVE it. It's the best gun I've shot in a LONG time.

    BTW....Bausk your AV is freakin' awesome.

    XD-M doesn't have a compact or sub-compact, yet. Just wait until they do.

    Springfield should just go ahead and replace their entire XD line with XDm variants. I shot one today, and liked it. It's pretty trick.

    Also shot a CZ Phantom..... Holy shit that things light. Shooting back to back with a Shadow was insane. The Shadow feels like an absolute pig in comparison, it's crazy.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    I'm actually supposed to be picking up another G17 this weekend/next week. Trading the guy some change and some fresh sausage. Not real for sure what I wanna do with it yet; a friend was looking for one but I heard he did something stupid and bought some HK bullshit.

    I shot my first Glock today, full size 9mm (17?). I was surprised that t was lighter than my SC XD9. I need to check out an XD-M but I have to find a range to rent one.
