    I made a quick vid last night to compare the two, if you are interested.

    True, though, right? Thing looks like the batmobile. The glock looks like an isuzu trooper.

    Thank you very, very much, dryflyelk - that saves me one more trip to the range/store. :)

    I've taken kinder to the XDm's trigger: I've shot several previous-generation Glocks before, of various calibers and sizes.

    One thing I have not been able to do is to compare a XDm9 3.8 Compact side-by-side with the G26. Your video further cements my seeking the XDm 3.8 Compact for concealed carry.

    Great comparison video with informative (and funny) narration. :) Thanks again.

    You're getting rid of the XDm? Wouldn't happen to be in Ohio, would you? ;)

    Sorry, I'm in Utah. It's not that I don't like the XDm. I do. I think I'm just more familiar with the glocks since I've had several. My wife was on my case to sell one so my friend bought it from me. I may pick up an XDm 45 in the future however.

    Is the XDm SC supposed to compare/compete with the G26 or G19, in terms of size & weight for CCW? I have both a G26 and G19, and an XD9 SC. The XDSC is already somewhere between the two, but this new version seems a touch larger, almost as if it's more comparable to the G19, which isn't near as concealable as the G26 (or XDSC).

    I guess I'm just not sure of the target market...

    It's listed as a Compact, not a SC, although it's almost in between. The .75" longer length shouldn't bother anyone for concealment purposes. The grip is actually skinnier than the XD-SC so it should actually conceal better. The S&W M&P has a 3.5" barrel and I've always loved it. So when Springfield came out with the XDm Compact 3.8" barrel it was a slam dunk for me.

    Thanks for the reply. I was thinking more along the lines of comparative weight & height. I've found that as long as the OAL is about equal (and these are) that height makes a big difference in where/how you can conceal it, and weight affects comfort over a long day. I've read the specs, so I know what it says on paper. I was just curious as to what those who have carried both (G19 and XDm 3.8) have thought, comparatively.
