Hello all. New to the forum, not so new to guns or springfield. Wa state starts its new 10 round magazine BS the beginning of next month. So I went and bought a few items beforehand. One of them being the XDM 9mm elite. I carry an XD mod2 .45 3.3 daily for the last 6 or so years, I love the gun. It's never once failed whatsoever. I carry concealed, typically OWB occasionally IWB if I have to. But I leave that one stock. The new xdm is going to get a venom optic and a can. I got my mounting plate in the mail a couple days ago. I joined the forum to learn more about the gun. I don't generally discuss what I own, I have a healthy distrust of the government (I'm sure I'm not alone) I haven't shot it yet, but this weekend I will be going to go play with it. I've owned an xds also in a .45, I planned on using that for CC but it was very unreliable. It liked to jam while feeding and after trying different brands of ammo, polishing the ramp, etc I found that it only liked FMJ ammo. Obviously I can't use it for defense with FMJ, so I sold it. But aside from that one I love the springfields that I have.
