    So I picked up my XDm 9mm 4.5" today. I've only put 100rds through it but I LOVE it. It shoots so smoothly. Very little recoil. Quick follow up shots. It makes my amateur shooting look good lol.

    Now I want to get a flashlight to mount on it. Any recommendations?

    This one was from about 35 feet and it was starting to get dark. I'm pleased with it lol

    About 15 feet but getting darker.

    This one was at 15 feet again but prettying dark outside.

    Might I add that on that first photo I was shooting some cheap ammo that I won't buy again.

    RANGE REPORT:

    So I went shooting earlier and I have to brag on my XDm 9mm. I had two boxes of old (one was old enough the price tag said $6.99....those were the days eh?) ammo one being a cheap Russian brand "Wolf" military special. My XDm cycled and fired every round perfectly. I put 300+ rounds through it just today without a single malfunction. That makes about ~800 total rounds so far flawlessly.

    Might I add my buddy with me is a glock fan an he fell in love with my springer :)

    Also I was having too much fun to think to take pics :p sorry guys

    I have a Glock 19 and like it allot. I keep reading nothing but good about the XDm. Can you tell me why you like it better and do they make a comfortable compact 9mm for carry. I want to pick up another carry pistol and thought I would change it up this time so SA popped into my head. It's this or another 1911 again. Thanks for helping, Ed

    Here are two links as to how/why I chose the XD(m) of the GLOCK and my impressions of the XD(m) - why I feel it's a great gun.

    I went to my local gun shop and held one yesterday and it was hard to have them put it back in the case. It felt really nice in my hand and was not a brick. Thanks for the links, you had a nice day at the range with great results. It really helped me make up my mind. Thank you for helping me out. Have a good weekend. Ed
