I started this thread a long time ago. It's good to see some good pics here. Photography has become as enjoyable as shooting my XDs. I need to get some new ones up here. I have almost as much invested into my camera gear as my firearms now! Keep them coming.

It's skateboard grip tape from Dick's Sporting Goods and they make it in a ton of colors. It's 5 bucks a sheet and you can do about 30 or so out of it. You just need to clean the grip with alcohol before you apply it. It took a little experimenting to get the pattern right, but it's cheap, grips increadable and sticks really well. Once you get your pattern down just take the ones that were on the gun and trace out your next set.

I am a 45 acp but have intrest in the 40 xdm I wonder till it is in sub size is a 4.5" to much, to long to carry ? I carry a sub xd 9mm now and a Kahr 9mm . I love a 45 its just heavy to carry. The 40 is a good cal and a good shooter good groups. Is it a carry gun size?

I have read that barrel length isn't as much of a consideration for carry as the size of the grip. Based on the way a holster holds a gun the length of the grip is what can cause probs. Kinda makes sense if you think about it cause the barrel is pointing down in most applications but the grip is sticking out. Just food for thought.

The "M" isn't bad at all to carry. It's smaller than most 1911s. I think it's wonderful for most cases in self defense.
