    I want to get an XDm .40 but do not know where to get the best price. Do you guys have any web sites that give good deals?

    Also, I see on some sites that they are selling the XDm in Bi-tone. Is that the same as a stainless?

    Everything I read on the XDm is glowing and I shot one and it felt incredible . Do you have any more critical comments on the gun?

    What would be considered a good price for the 4.5" .40 XDm in stainless?

    Thanks for your help

    I have no critical comments for the gun at all. Discount Guns for Sale - Buds Gun Shop usually has really good prices and free shipping, but you will have to pay your ffl around $20 or more to pick it up.

    The bi-tone is the stainless slide model. :cool:

    +1 on Bud's. I've had great service and have purchased several firearms from them.

    OBTW, I hate 40 S&W, step down to 9mm for ammo price or up to 45ACP for stopping power. The 40 S&W was an answer to a non-existing question.

    Or just ignore the old man about everything but Bud's. [​IMG]

    From a shop that deals primarily with firearms, and not a place the deals primarily with other sporting goods.

    Ignore the old man at your own peril for he is wise in the way of the gun. He just has an unhealthy obsession over anything designed by JMB. :rolleyes:

    I've bought several from Bud's myself and they are a great store.

    Word of warning - find a local FFL first that will transfer the gun for you and do this in advance of buying it. You don't state your location and some places the fees eat up any potential savings. Also note that if you intend to use a credit or debit card that Bud's charges an additional 3% (as a LOT of vendors do)...

    For the price savings of buying online from Buds, unless the purchase price is over 10% less at Buds, I'd just buy local.

    622x1.03= $640.66 + $25 fee at shop = $665.66

    622/665.66=0.9344 = 6.56% added on.

    I'm considering Buds over local as well but I haven't searched around that much. I'll gladely pay $20 more for a gun to buy it from a local store.

    I think I can get a deal through a local shop though

    This shop links to the above one BEAR MOUNTAIN SPORTS

    $604 is a better price than Buds! Deal good till 7/31

    As A FFL I can tell you that in my area, it is always cheaper to buy the gun from Bud's, reason is Sales Tax, ours is now at 10.3%. I charge $25 to transfer and my XDM 40 runs $585. Bud's has always been able to beat my price & then you get to keep at least $25-50 of your money. Plus I get the satisfaction of seeing you get your gun & the state can choke on n ot receiving the sales tax money- ****in Robbers

    I think shipping is $25.00 and lucky for me, my FFL only charges $10.00. :D

    Thanks man, that's a good deal with the extra mag! I've been looking at the 9mm and may buy it from them. ;)

    It looks like the best bet for me is to purchase from Buds for $618 delivered. Shooters has it for $599 but they are located in my state so I would have to pay sales tax.
    Thank you guys for all of your help. Now the question becomes 9mm or .40 XDM? Any input?

    Lastly, where is the best place to but ammo in bulk at a discount price and what is the best brand of ammo to feed my new gun?

    I did the 40 S&W on my first gun, an M&P 40 and now I wish I got the 9mm so I'm gonna get the XDM9. Good excuse to get the XDM right. :cool:

    I would say if it's a range gun get the 9mm.

    9mm for range and 45ACP for punch :D

    If it's just for the range, get the 9mm. Walmart has the best price on ammo, umc, federal, winchesters,etc... Post up some photos and a range report when you get it! :)
