I think the the an XDm version will be released, like the XDSC. I think the Tactical will go away, so too the Service. The XDm is a tweener size, to replace both. That 1/2" is no loss either way.If you believe that is the case, do you think the XDm, in its current form, is slated to replace the XD Tactical or which XD pistol?
I second that! As said by another poster, the XD-M is STILL an "XD" (Extreme Duty) So, that said, and as an owner of an XD-M, I see no reason why it can't be a duty pistol. In fact, a damn good one! Shot Placement! The XD-M is a very accurate pistol!They aren't going to phase out the other XD's, this has been discussed in every forum on here. The XDm is going to compliment. And why not for duty?
The cool thing now is you have enought rounds to take out the entire pack if needbe.:lol:I figured since its my first pistol and I will probibly keep it for a LONG time that I might as well spend the extra 100$ over a standard XD and get the freshest technology. For me it going to be Range/Plinking/Night stand handgun which I also plan on carrying in the woods and on horseback to ward off animals. Its NOT fun having a wolk pack stalking you on horseback.
