I've shot my friends XDM 40 compact. I liked they way it shot and the recoil wasn't that bad. The only thing I didn't like we're the grooves in the grip dug into my hand when I shot it

Those Hogue "grip condoms" work well. I had one on my Glock 27 before I decided Glock isn't for me and sold it. They feel good and they're cheap! I'd like to try an xdm. I did, however, convince some dude at the range to sell his xdm in favor of a P-01! Lol

Wow that's saying something. I held a P-01 once, and I would choose it over an XDM just on feel alone. Gun condoms are a good idea, but if I buy a gun it's going to be because it feels good in my hand. I done want to have to get something extra in that aspect. I do wish the P-06 was as cheap as the P-07 though lol

That's a good pnt. Sometimes I would be willing to purchase a gun if everything was PERFECT except one thing, but in a CC/HD pistol, it's got to feel good... I'm not sure where you're located, but as I said there is a used P-01 in my area. Not the .40 S&W, but $430 is a great price. If you PM me and are interested, I would be more than happy to go down and take some pics of it. Shipping to an FFL can be a pain, but that's a darn good price even with a $20 transfer fee. Also. You could just come to Utah. You cn stay here if you bring me two boxes of 10mm ammo! Lol!

Hahaha yeah that's not a bad deal at all. The only thing is I won't be able to get it for a another ten months. Which sucks because I know I'll see a lot of good deals between now an then
