I promised you all a range report when I finally got to shoot my new XDM .45, and here it is! I finally got out to the range tonight. I joined a local pistol club and got to put a box through the gun during orientation.
What a pleasure to shoot! I was a bit all over with the first 2 magazines, and I have a whole bunch of excuses ready to go, but I finally settled down and put some good groups together. The gun fired very smoothly, more so than I was expecting. I was expecting a greater recoil from the .45, but I really didn't notice it after a few rounds. Looking forward to going again as soon as I can.
I can now officially join the count...50 rounds fired, no malfunctions!!!
