Newbie report! Newbie report! Newbie report! So after lusting for the XDm for a couple of years, I squeezed the trigger and purchased the XDm 45 3.8" Bi-tone as my first last Saturday. Went to the range immediately after giving the new pistol the requisite quick cleaning/oil/grease. The first range visit was OUTSTANDING! After about 250 rounds of handloads, not a failure or hicup of any kind. The gun felt natural in my hand. Point shooting was immediate and accurate. Mozambique Drill was dead nuts! El Presidente fired off in about 9 seconds with 100% solid hits. Two days later hit the range again with another 250 rounds. She's purring smoooooth as silk! Love this pistol. Carried a Kel-Tec PF9 until now. But, this gives me choices. Gotta love choices! I'll probably choose to carry the XDm most often and carry the PF9 for the quick trips or pocket carry. BTW, thanks to everyone for making a forum like this so valuable and informative. I (like others I assume) tend to obsess over purchase decisions and research for an extended time.
