Default I think I've found my new gun

After work I went to the local gun shop to look at their pistols, and get some pricing. I asked the gentleman behind the counter to show me the new XDM 45. It fit my hand like a glove. I had the strong urge to buy it right there on the spot, but didn't. Possibly because my debit card has a limit on daily purchases, and I didn't have any checks with me.... Unless you guys can talk me out of it, it'll be in my arsenal soon.

One thing for sure is if you don't like it, there should be plenty of other people looking to buy yours...

Go for it!

The only suggestion I would add is get plenty of ammo the same day and shoot the snot out of it.

Good choice, both gun and caliber.

Definitely get it.
I hate tupperware guns, always have.
I have always been a 1911 and revolver fan.

But I went to the darkside, and my XDm 45 is a damn good gun. I have a range report on here.

I love mine. They've been flying off the shelves locally, and I've yet to see a used one for sale...which is uncommon when such a popular new model hits the market. No buyer's remorse with this gun.

If you can find a fault with the Croatian Sensation, let the world know. Thusfar, the world has been pretty quiet. Very happy with my XD.

My first pistol was an XD45 and I LOVE it! I've shot XDms and I like them just as much. You can't go wrong with an XD, they're reliable and accurate. If the price is right and you aren't hiding it from your wife I say go for it!

Went and got it before I left last night. Can't wait to get home to shoot it tomorrow. I'm divorced but I took my girlfriend to get it with me so there is no problem with hiding it from her...lol
