Getem, thanks for the feedback. There are a couple of reasons I'm considering the gun. First, I'd like to get involved in competitive shooting (IDPA Stock Service Pistol). My first choice is a Glock G34, but this was also on my list, along with the XDm 5.25. Another reason I'm considering it is because I've only sold two guns that I owned. On was a Taurus PT709 Slim because the trigger guard rubbed my grip finger raw. The other one was (yep, you guessed it) an XD9 Tactical...but the primary reason is still competitive shooting. Home Defense - I have a Glock G23 with night sights and a HD shotgun. Carry - I have a Kahr P9 with night sights. Range gun - I shoot a Ruger Mark III Target in Stainless Steel because the .22 ammo is cheap and it's a tack driver.
