What's up guys? I am a soon to be owner of a brand new XDm .40, a fine machine which i have been admiring...WAIT IM LYING!!! DROOLING over for the past 3months and finally made the first step by putting it on lay-away at my local gun range this past Monday. OH YEAH!! Did I also mention that by purchasing a Silver Membership at the range I was able to pick any Handgun I wanted and get it for store cost.My XDm .40 went from $650 to $550 after joining and now I have unlimited range time for up to 12 visits a year and lane priority a perfect package for a beginner like me. Just $250 more to go. This will be my first handgun purchase and I hope to gain as much knowledge as I possibly can on the whole matter. I found this site through researching the various XD and XDm models and this seems to be a very helpful and knowledgeable community, so I look forward to meeting and learning from many of you.
