On the Springfield website, the only xdm handgun shown is the 5.25, there is no mention of a 3.8 which I see advertised on other websites. Why is this? Is the 3.8 the same gun only with a shorter barrel? Why is it not listed on Springfield's official website?

This will be my first hand gun purchase. In my research to find the gun that best suits me, I have found the xd, which was shown me by the gun store clerk, fits my hand the best as I have small hands. I tried both the Beretta and Glock 9mm but did not like the feel. I have not fired the Springfield yet, but I definitely like its features and feel. The gun shown me in the store was not the xdm, but a xd subcompact 9mm. Will the feel of the xdm be the same? I am excited about this purchase because at least from the research and holding the gun, it appears to be what I am looking for. I especially like the grip safety feature. As mentioned, my main reason for liking the xd was the slightly narrower in circumference grip. I understand with the xdm you get extra bandstraps to choose from. I am assuming there is one for small hands.

Thanks for any info on my questions.

Let us know what you decide. You can't go wrong with any version, IMO.

The XDm has a slightly more ergonomic grip than the XD, and it comes with three sizes of backstraps you can put on the gun to make it fit even better.

All XD and XDm guns have the 1911 grip angle, which has been shown in some studies to be the best.

Get some training and practice trigger control and you can keep up with any pistol out there with an XDm.

Welcome fellow newbie... Did the gun shop you visited not carry the XDm so you could compare the grips? I was fortunate enough to hold both and I actually liked the feel of the standard XD which is what I ended up purchasing. Like the others have said, you really can't go wrong with either but if you can find a shop that has the XDm you can then compare the two and how they feel specifically to you. Good luck!
