I also have the .45 XDm 3.8 compact I use for carry and love it. Recoil is nice and very accurate. I also have one of those ugly Hi-Point carbines, lol. I did some cosmetic changes to it and it turned out pretty nice. It's a 9mm but fun to shoot and very accurate out to 100 yards.
I do have a Dan Wesson Specialist on the way which should be a blast to own.
