    So I decided on the Springfield XDm 40. It should be in on Tuesday. I am excited to take it to the range. I have heard nothing but good things about the XDm and I got a Great deal on the gun. I also got my GF the XDm 9mm. We are excited to take it out shooting!!

    Good choice. Shoot the heck out of her! (the pistol, of course).

    CONGRATS!!!!!
    I hear nothing but good about the "M" factor. My bro-n-law has XD 45. It's a real keeper.

    I'm one of the only XD fanboys that:

    a) doesn't own an XD

    and

    b) owns a Glock

    XDm45 for me. Anybody want to trade for a G19?

    Congrats, now put some miles on that thing!

    I'm sort of in the market for an XDm myself. Haven't decided which caliber yet. If the the 45acp came in OD/Stainless (I've been eyeing those particular ones) my mind would be made up. Might just join the club myself next week...

    List that thing on NWFA and it'll sell for $500+ within 48hrs...and you'll be within a few bills of your new XDm45.

    WOW!!!! I've been shaking trees all over trying to figure out how to buy/sell used firearms. Finally I find this place. Thanks so much, sweeper!

    No problem. That's my "other" gun forum, though I really only use it for the classifieds. A great deal of the listings are PDX area. G19's always move quick. You'll get about $500 for a low mileage stock Glock, then add a bit if night sights or holster are included.

    I just picked up (2weeks ago) an XD45 Tactical. I'm sure you'll like it.
    Got extra factory mags for mine at Midway at a very reasonable price.

    Looking forward to the range report. I think that XD is going to be my next centerfire pistol.

    Congrats on the new gun! As I like to say, my XDm 40 makes me look like a better shooter than I am.

    While I am a Glock person, I think your choice is a good one - have heard some good things about them and .40 is just about right.

    To the OP: Congrats on the purchase! Post up some photos once you get it.

    Really? I can get a brand new Glock 19 from the local shop for $499. I guess some places they are hard to come by.
