What? Where? Gimme!

It may be an isolated incident, even my LGS's seem sold out of Xd's.
Far as i've heard they're very reliable, they feel and shoot great IMHO.

Extremely reliable, great guns. I've had my XDm 9mm for a year and a half and love more everyday...trying to save up for an XDs too.

Maybe some of the "new" is wearing off, though. They've been out for a few years now, probably a lot of the initial excitement and intrigue is running out, so people are looking for the next new thing. I can't find a single thing wrong with them and I doubt you could find many people at all that will talk too bad about them.

i have the XDm40 and like it just fine. don't have any great love for it, because it's just a reliable pistol that does it's job as required. have no real desire to sell it, but i would if there was the right incentive to do so. i am just not emotionally attached to polymer guns.

i absolutely love my two xdm's both are 45acp one is the 4.5 the other 3.8. will never sell either. they are like a 1911 without the capacity issues.

How many remember the Dirty Harry movies?

Everyone "needed" a .44 mag. Only to sell it (and a box with 49 rounds) a couple of months later.

The firearm is not what they thought it was (i.e. the perfect gun for them).

Goes the same with cars. You could find a used vehicle that is only a couple of months old (if you look hard enough).

xdm's are in demand. People are selling to profit. It's just a Glock that looks better and shoots more accurate

I love my XDM and come to think of it...I love all of my guns. I have never sold a gun I bought actually...just too attached to them. My very first shotgun, a single shot 20 ga youth model, I sold to buy an 870 Wingmaster, but other than that, I can not imagine why a person would sell their gun, especially an XD
