Too bad we're so far away, I have a XDm 40. Oh well, wishful thinking.

Though I dont own one I know a lady cop that used one for years and during all of her qualification she never had a failure to feed. It was so reliable that the instructor had to manually create a stovepipe jam so she could practice clearing a jam. Best part for her was cleaning gun after shootig. She took the grips off, removed the slide and barrel and put it through the automatic dishwasher. The state patrol were issued them but now are issued S&W MP'S. The one officer I have talked to, isnt impressed with the new guns and wishes he had the old 4006 back.
