    I was just watching Handguns on the Sportsman channel on Direct tv. The hosts were putting an XDM 9 through a battery of torture tests such as submersion in water, mud and sand. After very minimal cleaning it was reassembled and fired without a hitch each time. It is truly a durable and reliable firearm. I'm proud to own two with a third in the near future!

    Yep, great pistols and IMO they're the best polymer framed pistol on the market $ for $. ;)

    Guess u didnt see the episode where they did that with mud it pretty much brought the fun to a halt until they cleaned it out with water but I don't think any pistol would pass that test with flying colors.

    Very pleased with mine as well. I agree that it is a great value pistol. Im hoping to add another to the group soon.

    I would love to see the video clips from that! do you have the name of the program it ran on so i can google it?
    Also, out of curiosity, will the XD shoot after being submerged in water without being cleaned??

    Saw it a couple years back. They did a different test each week. Mud, frozen, dragged behind truck etc.
    Google "Handguns TV Season II"

    The XDM torture test was done over the course of a few episodes. It faired well on some and not so well on others. I am the proud owner of XD's and I must admit I wonder how the XD would do in the same tests.
