So yesterday was my first time ever shooting my XDM. My brother in law and I went out in the desert with a mini arsenal of firearms including the XDM, a Norinco 1911, a .38s wheelgun, the Winchester 1300 12 ga., a modded SKS, and a Ruger 10/22.
No paper target shooting to test accuracy, just some basic plinking at stuff we brought with us (and yes, we packed it ALL out with us too). I was able to hit a few golf balls with the XDM from about 7 yards away, though - not too bad in my opinion. This was just to mainly get a feel for the gun and to have fun and relieve some stress.
Anyways, I LOVE this gun. It shoots sweet and is easy to stay on target. I fed over 100 rounds of cheap Federal 180g FMJs as well as a couple mags of 180g HSTs throught it with not one issue. I also thought that it would be awkward having my pinky hang off the end of the grip while shooting, but honestly I didn't even notice it. Next trip out I gotta take the wife out and try and warm her up to shooting a little more. All in all a great day.
