    I bought my second XDm over the weekend. It's also my second handgun purchase. It's a bitone 9mm in 4.5. I've been wanting one for a while. I think I'll get to the range more often since it won't be as expensive to shoot as my XDm .45 compact. I just wish I could find some 9mm ammo for it.

    I have a trio of XDM's. I had a bitone 9mm 4.5 and traded it for a 3.8 bitone 9mm. I have been scouring walmart and anywhere else I normally go for 9mm ammo and the shelves are bare. I was able to buy some 9mm from Cabelas for a reasonable price last weekend.

    I went to walmart a couple of days ago, and the shelves were empty, but they usually are for some reason. I've owned the .45 for a year now, and I have yet to pick-up to pick up a box of ammo for it at walmart. Seems like they never have stocked much .45 ammo.

    The guy told me that they have a limited stock for Wal-marts all around and each Wal-Marts get a little of what's on the truck. I mainly get mine out on the Army Post or to the Surplus ammo store they have plenty of the .45.

    Nice! I have the same model and love it. I just bought another xdm as well, a 40 and I'm picking It up on Sat.

    There's 9mm around you just have to search the net. I just pick up a case of 1000 of 115 FMJ for $216 + $9.99 for shipping.

    I also pick up a case of 40 but I somewhat overpaid, $300 for 1000, free shipping.

    I am searching to add another XDm to my collection. Either the Xdm 45 4.5 or the Xd 45 Tactical. Can never have too many weapons. LOL

    Got approval from the "House Six", that is the wife for civilians, to purchase more. She said she wants a weapon on each floor of the house, including the basement. She read about the home invasions and wants to be ready.

    Congrats to you too. My wife showed no interest while I was serving in the Army. But as soon as we retired from the Army and moved off a secure post she read of home invasions, now she wants weapons at the ready. She is even taking a conceal carry class next weekend.
