Lol yea. I'd rather have them all. I have never sold or traded a gun. And I don't plan on it. If I won't another gun I will just buy it out right. Needles to say I have a long wish list.

Bleh night sights, the truglow tfo's are much better. And quite a few things you can do, anything you can think of im sure you can get done. Like mine has barrel work solid guide rod both in robar np3+ trigger sights mag tuning and stainless steel pins throughout.

persoanally i see the polymer pistols as more a utility type firearm. they were not really made to customize and bling out. my XDm40 is totally stock and might at the most get a set of night sights. i have bought several more mags and might buy a few more. but i like mine as it came from the factory and see doing anything else to it, would just make it ugly and gaudy. but everyone has different tastes, so to each his own.

If you try them you might like the fact they allways work very well in all lighting or no lighting and done need charging or the need to reflect light like some do. Its nice with it being a nightstand gun at night because i can allways see my 3 dots so theres no struggle to find it. But you like what you do, i just think they work well reguardless how they look.
