Okay, I'm looking to get into some IDPA and/or 3-Gun shooting. I've been doing a lot of reading (both forums and reviews) and I'm down to the S&W M&P9 Pro Series 5" and the XDm 9mm competition with the 5.25" bbl. And now I'm stuck. I have yet to have a need to use the customer service of SA, so I'm taking that portion out of the equation (everyone seemingly says they're both #1 and #2 in the industry - you pick the order - so it's kind of a non-factor anyway). The guns themselves seem to be similar in fit and function, however while I've handled both, I have yet to shoot either. Don't know anyone who owns one or both of them, so the opportunity hasn't come up where that's possible. So, I'm looking for some advice/feedback from those of you who own one (or both) of these fine pistols. Since they're both priced about the same, which way would you go? And why?
