I'm happy with my 3.8 Compact...The Made in the USA thing is a little buggy. But you don't here that complaint much when people are talking about Italian Beretta's, Austrian Glocks, German SIG's and Walthers.

Just bought the xdm 45cal. 4.5 in two tone. LOVE IT! And I carry it concealed just fine.Even with the holster it came with, not a $100 holster. Also carry the extra 2 mags with the mag holster it came with, all very comfortable, and conceals great. Although I do wear appropriate shirt with it to help conceal. Gun is extremely accurate out the box and chose it over all the other choices, definitley made the right choice! Go get one you'll be lad you did.

I have an XDm 3.8 in .40, and my dad has an XDm 4.5 in .40. Both have about 2k rounds with zero failures. Both shoot great and are far more accurate than either of us. I carry mine daily, and my dad carries occasionally. I would not hesitate to trust my life or my family's lives to either.

As mentioned by another, the only thing I don't like is the made in Croatia.

If I could make a recommendation, go with a compact in whichever caliber you choose. That way you still have the full size magazine for range time, and have the ability to conceal easily if you choose.

As I mentioned in a different thread, I traded a Glocks 21 for an XDm in .45. I liked the slimmer grip in the XD. I do not like the grip safety as it must be engaged to open the slide. I have to have a shooting grip to check the chamber (i always visually check) or disassembling the gun. After a decade and a half of Glocks, my takedown grip does not work well. I doubt this will be an issue for most.
The XD does not digest low power ammo. 4.4 grains of Green Dot and Berry's 200 gr bullets failed to function. That is the max load for lead (which is what plated bullets are usually considered for powder measurements). I bumped it up to the FMJ load of 5.1g and it works. My G30 ate the 4.4gr loads to use them up.
