I am new to this forum, but from what I have read and the pictures I have seen. You, like me have a great passion for SA XD's and now the new XDM's. Have several XD's and Santa just bought me an XDM in 40 S&W, I did get to hold and look at it for about 5 minutes and then she took it away and said, not until Xmas will you see it again. Didn't sleep a wink that night just thinking about the new XD. Well, just 22 more days. Hope I get some sleep before Xmas.
