Rated 5 out of 5 by st8of10ec I'd bet my life on it!
I have owned the XDM since it's introduction several years ago,& it is one of the sweetest shooting handguns I've ever used.The 16 + 1 capacity is reassuring in case things were to go south,& I have never experienced a jam in many trips to the range.How much do I trust this weapon?I'd bet my life on it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ccincrco A joy to shoot
A fantastic gun. With 16+1, it's a blast sending that much lead down-range with confidence. The match-grade barrel gives consistent groupings and accuracy over the long-haul. I've owned mine for over two years now and have shot well over 2,000 rounds through it without ANY jamming or incident whatsoever. I typically go with Winchester FMJ target ammo and have also shot some home-defense rounds through it to get a feel for the difference in loads. A real joy to shoot. The way this gun performs, it feels like it's worth at least twice what I paid for it.
