I had one, and sold it.
No reason really, just like the XD9 Tactical a little better.
I never felt any debris coming back at me although there are times when you felt a bit of a "shockwave" from the muzzle. Also never did test out the theory that you will lose your night vision if shooting in darkness
The pistol does get dirty after a good extended shooting session, but just go home and clean it. Recoil is reduced to just about nothing, infact the pistol almost pushes your hand below the line of sight. I would get it for speed shooting or competition if a ported pistol is allowed. It was a good pistol and if it's a good price, grab it!
