Default Xdm 45

Hello
Well just hit 1000 rds today on my XDm45, it has been flawless for these first 1000 rds so it will be added to my carry list. It sure is accurate. Even when I practice my draw and point shoot drills this thing is great.

Well anyway is anyone else going to start to carry one of these?
If so let me know what you think,
And what I really want to know is what every one is going use for a holster?

I have a Blackhawk Serpa levelII, great holster not really the best for concealment alltho it does work. Makes for a really nice grip when drawing.

I'm ready to add to my carry list too with my XD45 tactical. I'll probably use the holster that came with it and go from there. Holsters ain't cheap and since I don't have to carry on the job anymore it's hard to justify(to my wife) the $ for a good leather one. My build and for comfort seems to like a soft leather shoulder rig.

I just picked up an XDm45 today. I could see myself carrying it the colder half of the year, but to be honest I don't have any experience carrying (waiting on ppwk)...so what do I know? I intend to give it a try.

I've got an inquiry in to Crossbreed to see if their "SuperTuck" XMDs will fit the new 45 version. If they do, I'm ordering one. They come very highly recommended from a number of the more informed posters on this board.

Congratulations!! The supertuck is the way to go for bigger handguns like xd's.

I've been carring my XD 45 for over a year and a half! and would not trade it except may be for the XDM. Holster wise - Supertuck is great - Though I have made one of my own with some modifications ( mainly due to the size of my frame - not the XD). I also use a ACE IWB ( fits in the pocket of my carpenters jeans) -- I am now making some new verions out of leather - along with my version of a vertical shoulder holster - will let ya know how it turns out. -- there is simply no better gun to carry!
I own a 32 smith, 357, 9mm P38, 38colt, and my trusty XD45. ( use a add on mag extender ) gives me 16 rounds +1 in the chamber.

I plan on carrying the XDm45. Checking out the holster options before I do though.

I have about 800rds down the tube and if has worked out very well.
Here is a review of my XDm 45:

Quote:
I've got to tell ya I was always of the mind set that I would never
own a tupperware gun, but was I wrong! The first thing I noticed
shooting it was that is was surprisingly soft shooting, however the
grip was small. I have odd bear-paw hands and I had to swap out the
backstrap to the largest size at the range.

After the swap, the gun felt like my Colt Combat elite with the arched
housing only thicker. I brought an assortment of Hollow Point ammo
just in case it didn't like something. I WASTED MY MONEY! It shot
Speer GD, Hornady XTP+P, and Corbon JHP+P just like it was FMJ ammo.

And as for accuracy, I had it loaded to 13+1 and I could only see 11,
maybe 12 holes in the target. Which means that 2 to 3 rounds went
through the same holes. I shot a total of 310 rounds of which 60 were
hollow points and the rest were Magtech FMJ and Winchester FMJ (the
light ones that look like JSWCs). After all that I was amazed at how
soft shooting it was, It makes my Defender seem like a torture device.

Not a jam

I could not be happier with this gun. My only complaint is that my Colt is going to get lonely!

I have been carrying it in a Tagua Open Top Quick Draw Leather Belt
Holster made for a H&K 45 Auto. It actually fits perfectly. I picked it
because H&K have larger trigger guards. Plus, its only $35 shipping
included.


Quick Draw Leather Belt Holster - Tagua Gun Leather | Gun Holsters, Leather Holsters, Pistol Holsters, Western Holsters, Shoulder Holsters, Glock Holsters.

Good write ups, guys. I'm a diehard 1911 guy, but have been seriously thinking of getting an XD and now I just found out about the XDm. What's the difference??

As far as pistols go, I am also a 1911 guy. For me I feel the XDm has improved ergonomics, better grip angle, better trigger. It feels like a wide 1911 with an arched mainspring housing and the trigger (while not as good as a 1911) it is much closer to one than the XD or Glock pistols. It is also damn near as accurate as a stock $1000 1911 from the box, not as good as my Combat Elite (but not much is).

I bought my XDM 45 about a month ago and I love it! It is very accurate, easy to shoot and just feels great in my hand. I purchased the Crossbreed Supertuck holster (in horsehide) for it and the comfort is great and concealability is good too. What's nice is they give a 10% discount for NRA members.
I also own a Sig P229 and an HK P2000sk both in 40 cal and I love them both but I find that the XDM 45 is easier to shoot.
