    Hello,

    I'm new to the forum, obviously.

    I'm looking to get my C&C soon, and I'm planning on purchasing an XDM 9mm compact. I haven't purchased yet, so I'll be looking for the best places to buy (Price and Service). Starting to browse the forums to see what's been said, but any links here are welcome.

    This forum has already been good info the in couple of days I've been browsing around. :grin: :cool:

    Welcome to the forum from VA.
    I lived in Minnesota for a few years, north of Duluth, on the Iron Range.

    Welcome from Minnesota, glad our number will soon go up by 1! My first handgun purchase just happened to be an XD-M 9mm Compact, love it - great gun! I've since moved to the XD-S for carry.

    Just FYI: Minnesota is a 'carry' state, no designation in the permit for concealment, so it's just called a 'permit to carry'.

    If you are anywhere near Lakeville I would suggest to take the class at the Gander Mountain. I took the class a year ago and was impressed with the course and the instructor.

    We had one of the best 4th of July celebrations watching fireworks in Lusk Wyoming this last year. Just by chance we were driving thru on the 4th and stayed for the fireworks on our way to Mt Rushmore. Great little town for the 4th, and the kids are asking to go back again.

    I was raised in the Texas panhandle. Lived there from age 7 to 34, except my time in the Marines. Amarillo, Texas is where I consider my home town.

    Southern MN...Mankato area. My work has a gun club and they are talking about trying to get a class together for us. If not soon I'll be looking for a good class. I don't just want a quick slam thru the class to get the permit. I really want to learn what I need to from it.

    Welcome from the cities! Now go buy an Xdm and take your class:). If you come up to the cities to purchase, I'd recommend The Frontiersman.
