Here's my follow up...
My original post was about a week after getting the XDm 45 3.8" Compact in Bitone. Now more than a month later, I gotta say this is by far the most dependable, enjoyable gun to shoot of all my handguns. I have sent 2000+ rounds downrange now.
Accuracy is superb!
Dependability has been 100%.
As a carry gun? No problem! It is now my first choice when I leave the house.
Several good comments on the look of the bitone.
For anyone on the fence about buying this gun, I hope this pushes you off.
After spending so much time on the range with this gun now, I only wish one thing... I wish it could clean itself!
