I picked up an XDM 45 compact last weekend. Took it out today for the first time. I didn't have much time to shoot since I'm oncall for work this weekend and got a call while I was out. But WOW. I sold a Taurus PT145 and got this gun. This gun is Sooo much better. First shot was less then .5" from bullseye at 7 yards. Made a mess of the bullseye area after a extended mag. The Taurus I was lucky to get half the shots on the target... I have done allot more work with my grip and that may have quite a bit to do with it too. The Taurus's trigger was so long that I would end up jerking it,a nd I know that was most of my problems with it. I love this gun so far.
