My first look at the XDm .40 was love at first sight, as with others here. My only hesitancy was "9mm or .40". The .40 is very nice and a stronger round than the 9mm.. but the 9mm holds umpty-dump rounds compared to the .40. The grip safety was a large part of my choice.. I simply am not happy with carrying a pistol cocked on a live round without a safety and the grip offers that margin of safety. The .40 XDm will probably be my last personal defensive pistol, nosing out the Commander .45s Ive depended upon for many years. Coming from me, that was an admission I would never have made before.
