    Hello All,
    I will soon be a future XDM holder. I am a current M&P 9 holder (only 2 weeks old) but I know I love the sport already.
    I always wanted a firearm and finally went for it.

    Now my first choice was the XDM 9 but unfortunately due to limitations did not have the choice but I must say I am happy with my M&P 9mm.

    My question for you experts is the following:

    How is the XDM 45 4.5inch? How does the recoil compare?
    Any insight I should know between the M&P 9 and an XDM 45 4.5?

    ANY AND ALL TIPS ARE APPRECIATED.

    I hope and plan to be a great contributor to this forum.

    Thank you in advance for the welcome .
    :p

    Hello & welcome!
    Don't know about the 4.5" but have 3.8" & recoil is easily managed IMOP. Don't think you'd have a problem.

    I just picked up my first 45 yesterday, XD 3.8. As soon as I can find some ammo for it locally (all wal-marts are out :( ), and can get to the range this weekend I'll report my take on the recoil vs my .40 SC. ;)

    I have the XDm in both 9, and .45, 4.5", and both are easy to shoot with very manageable recoil.

    I have an XD9 and XD45. Both are the 4" service models. Both have very managable recoil. There is a very noticable difference between them though. The 45 recoil wants to push straight back, and the 9 wants to flip up, and then fall right back on target. I can rapid shoot the 9 much more accurately than the 45. When taking my time, 1 shot per second, I shoot them with equal accaracy.

    On a side note, the 9 is supposed to be my wifes, but she shoots my 45 much better. Go figure?

    I have both a 9 and 45 XDm in 3.8, love them both, recoil is not an issue. Fun to shoot both.

    I'd say it depends on if you plan to carry it or not. I carry my 4.5" in crossbreed supertuck and it's ok but I'd probably prefer the 3.8 for that. Mine is primarily a range gun though, so I like the full size.

    I'd venture to say you'll be happy with either of them though...or perhaps the best decision would be both :)
