    I look forward to your range report. I'm close to making my first purchase as well. What helped you to decide on the XD(M)?

    I rented it from one of my local gun range. It shot awsome and I liked the ammo capacity.

    I'm jealous of your choice in first handguns. I have a few pistols myself and just finished my concealled handgun class. In north carolina i could only get an appointment as early as the 22nd. Eveyone has been saying that the xdm 9mm compact is a good overall concealled gun. Need to wait till i get my permit and then i believe i will purchase my own xdm. Please post your range report for my personal benefit!

    There's really no need to wait, they're available with or without a CC permit :p

    Ok, this weekend I was sick but I was a trooper and eent to the range anyway. My brother and mother went with me. We put 300 rounds down range and didnt have any jams or hickups with it. It eat evrrything we gave it. We shot 100 blazers rounds and 200 walmart federal rounds. The xdm is truely a great gun. we went through 3 zombie targets at ranges from 10 yrds to 25 yrds and all 3 targets are swiss zombies now lol. That saus alot seeing how the 3 of us are no where near marksmen by all means. This saturday ill go by myself and get a better report for you guys. When I get home from work ill post pictures of the zombie targets we shot.

    Thanks a lot for the feedback on your range report. I spent a few minutes at my local gun shop today and couldnt believe the lack of choices they have. I guess I will have to go through the enternet.Still cannt deside between the 9mm 3.8 barrel or the longer barrel.

    I'm not a very good shot, yet. But with this gun I was able to do this at 15 yards.. 17/19 is not to bad for only shooting a pistol a couple times in my life.

    Nah not bad. Get used to a proper grip and some practice and youll do that at 50 yards easy in tine :)

    Consistent grip, practice dry firing - it will save you $$$ in ammo, keep Tgt close until you can consistently group then you have a choice: speed it up or move it out . I was amazed how much the grip impacted POI on my XDM.

    Walked into a local gunshop & the manager was in the middle of a trade. LEO was trading an XDm 3.8 9mm, 6 mags, box & all the stuff. Agreed on a price before he finished the trade. Going to the H.R. 218 quals with it in middle of Ict.

    Hey congrats on the gun choice, I too just bought my first gun ever, an xd9, and love it already! Mine was NIB but I kinda wish it had been loved on by an LEO a little, everything seems a lil stiff on the gun so far.

    In about a week away from buying an xdm 9mm 3.8 compact. Reading everyone's post about how great and how reliable they are is getting me pretty excited.

    Yeah...it's a great choice. It's really a comfortable shooter. I have a bi-tone...you?
