Thanks RetiredFCC, Jim, USAF 452, Mrs Goff, and Jrod!!!
JRod, you are welcome...believe it or not it is folks like yourself that take the time to thank military folks (LE, Firefighters, EMT..included) that makes doing the jobs worthwhile.
I ordered a Springfield Armory XDM 9mm 5.25" Competition model this morning and it should be shipped to my FFL in Black Forest by Tuesday or Wednesday!
VERY Excited and got it at a really good price (only a buck over the LE pricing) so I am very happy...
I am going to give it a shot with the factory grip for several hundred rounds then will most likely put in a PRP trigger.
