Years ago Chrysler used to have a TV commercial that invited you to come test drive a new Chrysler, and the spokesman would open the driver's door and point to the seat, saying "Fifteen minutes HERE can change fifteen YEARS of buying habits." I think that exact same thing is true of the XD and XDM series. Comparatively, feature for feature I feel they are the best polymer handgun on the market today. And they are certainly equal in quality to any other maker.
