Default Springfield xdm 45 acp

Went to the rang for the second time and put another 100 rounds through my 45 xdm and man I got to say I am amazed at how little recoil I have being that it is a 45. All I can say is I love the Springfield xdm 45 :-))

I have the XDm in 9mm and . 40 and I love shooting them. In fact I like them so much I am selling my Sig P220 so I can get another XDm in . 45. I can't wait.

The whole "poly frame soaking up felt recoil" seemed true to me as well. My first tupperware was the original XD .45 Service model and I also noticed considerably less recoil than my all metal .45's shooting the same ammo.

I have the xdm40 3.8 and I love shooting this gun as well. Not a lot of recoil and very easy to line up to shoot. I hope the reviews I read on the xdm 45 3.8 are good because I think that might be my next gun. I'm torn between that and the Springfield emp 40.

You jump bail

XD longer barrel compares to Springfield Armory? Wilson?
Not in your face, only have a 1980 Gold Cup, Sig 228, a few older S&W revolvers, and a Glock or so.
