Ok, please correct me if Im wrong but I have done steel plate competitive shooting with friends for fun using a ( Xd 4" ) But I was wondering if I can use the xdm 3.8 full grip 9mm for Competitve steel plate shooting? I know that the 4.5 and 5.25 are good for that but this isnt want I want to use and its not what im asking. All my friends are saying that the sights are too close and shooting targets farther away would be harder. and its a waste of $. want to know if I could use it? or if anyone has ever done it before? is there really much of a difference from 3.8 to 4"
