went to the range the other day
ok I figured that I should probably start getting a little more active with XDtalk so I decided to post about my most recent trigger time with my XDM45 compact.
I took her out to fullfill that most favorite of past times: killing the first paper BG that looked at me wrong. In retrospect, I should have brought along a different type of ammo but as money is tight I decided to just grab a box of some WWII spam can 45 ammo that I cracked open 2 years ago and have had laying around. just a word of warning, if you take ammo, seal it in an airtight container and then open it 7 decades later, it will run flawlessly but if you don't shoot it in a timely manner it starts to get funky. jackets were stripping off the bullets in flight and had a number of fail to fires but they all went off after a second feeding. I got a LOT of training with clearing failures and got pretty good at trigger control by the end. luckily while I was shooting in the navy I had the same problem with jackets stripping off so I got pretty good at telling which holes were from bullets and which holes were just shrapnel from the jackets. I shot a standard Navy pistol course(12 shots at 3 yards with reloads and hand changes, 12 shots at 7 yards with reloads and hand changes, and 24 shots at 15 yards with reloads both standing and kneeling). out of 240 points(48 shots times 5)I scored 237 which ties my previous record set with an M9. for me, that is outstanding for a compact of any caliber. I just felt like sharing... I need to get a holster for this gun so I can start packing it as my EDC.

As is customary when I am talking about Berettas I am obligated to mention that the safeties are HORRIBLE!!!
as is customary when I am talking about Glocks, I am obligated to mention that the grips are not "perfection"
