Hard slide movement- if you are right handed , hold the slide with your left hand at the top rear of the slide between the thumb and index finger, left elbow held next to the body not moving, now shove the hand grip with the right hand and it will be a lot easier as it is earier to shove then to pull the slide. ireton sports

I have no problem working the SA XDm-45 slide, but it is definitely much stiffer than that of the Colt XSE1980. Both are .45's, but with the XDm, when you rack the slide, you're also cocking the striker, so you have the resistance of two springs at work (although admittedly, the striker spring is not very much tension). Normally, when I rack the slide on the Colt, the hammer is already cocked. If I rack it with the hammer down, there is a definite difference.

It's like the infamous "obrez", it'll blow a hole in a BG, and set his clothes on fire

at the same time. Cannons can be a comfort...

Yeah anytime a chick walks up, racks, and says "Eh.." impresses the hell out of me. Even if it's a 22. lol

Remember CC in most states(USA) is considered "On or about the person."

I use a satchel, backpack, or ballistic nylon shoulder bag.

Especially when I'm going where there's a lot of cash flying

around, like the LGS, or gas stations,etc.

It's a .44, a matching-cartridge gun to my Marlin 1894, which I use for

hunting wild boar.

The DE44s and 50s have interchangeable frames, in .44 and 50AE, so

size-wise, it's the same as the 50AE. The muzzle velocity, blast, and

flip are all reduced @ 40%. The 44 Rem Mag cartridges are also

about 1/3 the cost of the 50AEs.

It's great, but the weight and size (@ 10 Lbs, fully loaded with spare mags)

make it a chore to carry on a regular basis. Then I go back to my more popular EDCs,

the 92FS or 1911A1.

But since I carry full-size, I'm probably not the best person to

give proper advice on a comfortable EDC pistol...
