Just had my first trip to the range with my new 3.8 XDM 9mm compact. At first I was shooting just to the left( see this on the forums ALOT, but it IS me, NOT the weapon).This gun IS more accurate than me. After taking my time, using proper trigger control I was able to get on target to my exact aim point. This gun was SUCH a hit with my wife and our friends, we were at the range a hour and a half, I was able to shoot about half the time, it got to the point I had to TAKE my gun back lol. Now here is the Good part I mentioned. There was about 10 minutes until the range closed. The couple in the next lane over from me, asked me about about my XDM, and why everyone was "fighting" over it. Turns out that the couple were new to shooting. They were there renting various guns at the range. This was going to be a couples activity for them on the weekends( Good for them!). I explained to them what the XDM was,( even explained about the XD models) and each versions benefits. I offered to let them handle my XDM, and offered to let them fire the rounds I had left to empty the box. Keep in mind they were there renting guns to see what gun they prefered before buying a gun for each of them. There was just enough time left after explaining this to them, for them to take their time and fire off one full 19 round mag each. Well, they were SO impressed with the XDM, as we were all paying at the counter that EACH of them offered to buy a BRAND NEW 3.8 XDM 9mm on the spot!( it was too late to do the paperwork tonight, as the range was closing, but they are going back tomorrow to get them) They explained to the owner I had explained the weapon to them, its benefits, let them hanlde mine and even fire a mag each. For basicly doing a "sales pitch" of the weapon, which resulted in his selling 2 new weapons that he then credited my account with TWO free hours of range time! Here is a pic of how my new XDM perfromed. The distance was at 30 feet.
