Thumbs up My first post 9mm-45mm

Hello All,
I will soon be a future XDM holder. I am a current M&P 9 holder (only 2 weeks old) but I know I love the sport already.
I always wanted a firearm and finally went for it.

Now my first choice was the XDM 9 but unfortunately due to limitations did not have the choice but I must say I am happy with my M&P 9mm.

My question for you experts is the following:

How is the XDM 45 4.5inch? How does the recoil compare?
Any insight I should know between the M&P 9 and an XDM 45 4.5?

ANY AND ALL TIPS ARE APPRECIATED.

I hope and plan to be a great contributor to this forum.

Thank you in advance for the welcome .

Hello & welcome!
Don't know about the 4.5" but have 3.8" & recoil is easily managed IMOP. Don't think you'd have a problem.

I just picked up my first 45 yesterday, XD 3.8. As soon as I can find some ammo for it locally (all wal-marts are out ), and can get to the range this weekend I'll report my take on the recoil vs my .40 SC.

I have the XDm in both 9, and .45, 4.5", and both are easy to shoot with very manageable recoil.

I have an XD9 and XD45. Both are the 4" service models. Both have very managable recoil. There is a very noticable difference between them though. The 45 recoil wants to push straight back, and the 9 wants to flip up, and then fall right back on target. I can rapid shoot the 9 much more accurately than the 45. When taking my time, 1 shot per second, I shoot them with equal accaracy.

On a side note, the 9 is supposed to be my wifes, but she shoots my 45 much better. Go figure?
