I found this website a few days ago and it played in major factor in my decision. I own and shoot revolvers, but since the presidential election I decided it was time to purchase my first high cap semi-auto pistol. After reading and vistiting many other forums, I decided the XDm 9 was the one for me!!!! I reside in Indiana, so I am able to pay and tote all in the same visit.. What a deal. Love the balance and features. Thanks to all the posts on this site I'm a proud owner of a black XDm 9..
