I bought a XDm 9mm july last year! love the gun smooth accurate not to big or bulky. the main reason i went with the m and not the xd was the mag cap and the feel of the gun when i shot it. m felt smoother to me. not to mention that i can field strip it in about 30 sec's. on that note i put 20 rounds in a log a little smaller than a 2l bottle at 20 yards.
