I bought the XDM 5.25 for IDPA. I already had the Glock 34. I shot the XDM and traded it off the next weekend. Cool looks, awesome packaging, but alas, I perform better with the Glock. I can say that The Tactical Defense Institute in Ohio told a buddy of mine that students that show up with an XD often have it break before the 3 days are up. Seems to be a trend.
