My XDm .40 is my carry weapon. It's all about the grip for me. It fits my hand better than anything else and that allows me to shoot the best I have ever shot. Glocks and XD's are great guns, the XDm just works best for me. Its also a confidence thing... if I've got to trust my life or my familys life on my ability to hit what I'm aiming at, I want what works best for me regardless of any accomodations I have to make for carrying it.
