XDm Problem Solved!!

I was having issues firing my XDm. I was shooting left and low. Well, it sounds stupid but all I did was change out the grip2 to grip3. I shot 100rounds today and it shot great.

I was using a 2 inch target and my groupings were awsome. I know that it sounds like I am bragging but it's just that I am excited about aiming at something and hitting it dead on feels great specially after thinking that my XDm was messed up.

Thumbs up

Go ahead and brag, I sure everyone here shares in your excitement. I think it's great that you didn't give up on the pistol and tried something different and got excellent results in the process.Besides weknow your really bragging on that firearm of yours. Now you can start having fun with it.

Feels good to find a cause and correct it.
Good for you.

I also went from the medium back strap to the large and noticed a big improvement in shot placement. I am still a little off to the left though so more range time to work on that trigger finger.
