hey guys still waiting to hear about importing the xdm to ireland so purchased a bul m5 9mm to wet my appetite till the springfield comes through 19 rounds 9mm not bad cost me around $800 new with 5 new hc mags so fingers crossed the next month comes quick after my last pistol trouble and renting the crappy gun club glocks really put me off shooting the past few months. any one got any tips for a new idpa shooter?

You should be able to get an HS2000 or an HSm. Springfield Armory does not have European import/export rights. The guns are made in Croatia and different companies have import/export rights in different regions around the world. I am not saying you wont ever get a Springfield but the HS2000/HSm is the same thing just your part of the world.

Per Irishjimmys last post I think someone figured out that besides SA exporting them to the us. You can't get HS2000's exported outside the country they come from.
