im a hardcore 1911 guy and the wife and i went to rent a few guns last week i tried the xdm 9mm and its a pretty damn good gun. it ended up being the wife's pick for ccw/oc. im making the xdm in 45acp my next handgun buy. ive been shooting 1911s since 1988. i was that impressed. she liked the shorter barreled xdm than the longer 5.25 xdm it was a very nice shooter.
springfield is doing a xdm 5.25 testdrive atm at various gunranges around the country we took advantage of it.
i didnt see much difference in accuracy for me in the shorter xdm vs the longer 5.25. i didnt like the fiber optic sights tho.

The problem with being stupid is you cannot simply decide to stop doing dumb things...
