    well got to see all three of these today my lgs has a pmr30 in stock i think they want 469 for it. damn that thing is super light. it feels like nothing in your hand. it does have a real cheap feel to it. it doesnt feel like its strong enough built to holdup to sustained 22mag fire. overall i wasnt impressed. the heel clip release was a big downer.

    he also has one of the new xdm 5.5 45acp and one of the new 3.8 compact 45s. im going to have to go back when im not ccwing my new agent and do a side by side comparison of the new agent and xdm compact.

    i wonder if there is a 45 subcompact on the horizon...

    interestingly the slide assembly will fit and operate attached to the frame of the compact 45!! pretty funky looking with that long slide on a stubby grip lol.

    My wife was the one that opted for xdm. I hadtried the xd in the past but it felt a little off to me. She got her xdm in 9mm and i ended up getting the 45.

    Now im slowly having to admit the xdm is much easier for me to shoot than my 1911s.
