After a lot of research, trips to the gun shop, etc....I finally decided on an XDM 45, though I had to put it on layaway as I only had $140 on me Chose the xdm 45 over glock, s&w m&p, FN FNX. I will be going through firearms training with it for my criminal justice program when the time comes....though I'm already getting some grief from some classmates for not buying a glock , but what do they know ? haha. Love the feel of the weapon, just fits my hand perfectly. Any holster suggestions? Can't wait to pick it up and shoot it!
