Have had the gun about 3 months. Used it for a home protection class and have about 1500 rounds of different ammunition including personnel protection hollow points. Worked great. My wife wants to get the sub-compact model since we like this one so much. I did buy annother holster because the one that came with it stuck out to far. I am also going to get an IWB holster for deep carry.

I bought this pistol about 8 weeks ago. I only looked at a few other models at the counter when I picked this baby up. The way it melted into my hand made think, "Where have you been all my life?"
Since then, I've put over 700 rounds through it without one single problem. Regular target ammo? Fine. The good stuff? Excellent.
Cleaning this pistol is a breeze.
Even with a 3.8 inch barrel, the pistol is accurate (when I do what I am supposed to do).
The ergonomics is just outstanding!

Ask to see what's in the BOX! It comes with some kool stuff. See for yourself....Very smooth trigger. I was wanting the gun for Conceal Carry but I'm not so sure due to the length of the pistol grip. My friend bought a Generation 4 Glock 19 (at another retailer) on the same day so we had both guns to compare at the range. Barrel length on the XDM was slightly shorter. Field strip was easy enough. Follow up shots were FAST. As for Accuracy, well the groupings were good at 7 yards, however bullets didn't quite go where I wanted them to land.....(My Beretta M9 was on target right out the box). A little adjustment and I should be on target next go around with the XDM. 19+1 FOLKS. Hard to find that with all the features this gun has. Again I chose the 3.8 for CCW but the pistol grip may be too long. I was willing to still go for the gun for all the features it has. I gave the gun 5 stars overall for all the features. I would even give the gun 5 stars for looks. (almost intimidating). 4.5 stars for practicality as it is not quite compact enough for CCW although it was slightly shorter than the Glock 19. Some say go with the bigger caliber guns but when ya get 19 + 1 rounds to put on your target why bother? I'll make a bad guy hurt all over his body with this baby.
