Actually I fully expect them to come out with an XDM 45 but I still bought a XD. I guess you could look at it the other way also,I want an XDM but I won't buy one UNTIL they come out with the .45. So they lose sales that way also.It is in their best financial interest to keep release dates and such under wraps. What if customer A wants a .45 real bad, but when he hears the XDM 45 is on the way, he doesn't buy the XD 45 like he was planning. He could have potentially purchased both and brought in twice the revenue!
