    i currently own a XDm40 and really do like it. excellent pistol. so far to date not one problem yet. has handled every type of ammo i have put through it with not one failure to date. i would easily trust my well being to this pistol without hesitation.

    i did have a XD45c that was a really nice pistol as well and very enjoyable to shoot. i didn't keep it for very long as i already had another compact 45 pistol, but enjoyed for the short time i did have it.

    the XD and XDm platform has proven itself so far and most who own them are very pleased with them. buy one with confidence if this the one you want.

    bout 20 years ago :) i did.

    be sure to go to the top of kolekole pass on schofield barracks and check out where the big white cross to memorilize pearl harbor was before obama had it destroyed.

    a tour of pearl harbor is a MUST be sure to check out the ww2 sub they got there as well.

    you gotta be there on wheeler army airfield at least once when the MP's raise the flag. if your lucky you will get an mp that looks at as an honor duty. used to be my favorite duty raising that flag in the morning when i had patrol duty there. not many folks can say they have raised a US flag on such an historic base

    Have three XDm's one in each caliber. These guns are all very reliable and accurate. I shoot idpa with the.40 and.45 the only round that it its finicky with are semi wad cutters. Had to load the.45 to 1.28" oal to get them to run right. However no other ammo has ever given me even one issue. i have the 3.8 compact 9mm (wife's) the 3.8 in .40 and the 4.5 bi tone in .45. I love them all.

    Agree with Jon on this. My XDm 45 cal, I have the 3.8 and it has been a pleasure to own and shoot. Haven't had any problems with it so far and they all come with a lot of "case candy".
    You will like the full size.
    Also, be sure and go to the "Hale Koa", it's the military R&R hotel in Waikiki and they have an excellent Luau there, where you can try all the great Hawaiian food.

    I was convinced I wanted a XD45. But what really convinced me what what the company did with the gun editors. The editors wondered for years if gun companies sent them "Slicked Up" guns for them to try and write on. Springfield did something that impressed me. They sent them certificates. So they could go to the gun store of there choosing and pick a gun straight off the self to use. This prevented the "Slicked Up" gun theory. So the editors wrote about the same type of gun that you and me would buy.

    dont take any guns to hawaii :( leave em at home in a safe with someone you trust. hawaii requires gun registration and there are no places to shoot that i ever found that werent military ranges. hawaii is not a free state it is very similar to illinois the east coast states and california with the common person unarmed and violent crime rampant.

    the crime there just doesnt get reported because it would trash the tourist industry so there is a mssive effort in the media to cover it up.

    I own 2 XDm's, both 4.5", in 9mm and .45acp. I got the 45 in bitone so I can tell the two apart.

    My XDm45 is my bedside gun with CT laser on the grip and CT light on the trigger guard.

    If I had it to do over again, I'd get the night sights for just $90 more at time of purchase. It would cost twice that to do it aftermarket.

    I own a XDM 45 in the 4.5" and wouldn't sell it for any price. I have put almost every type of ammo through it, looked for the crappiest to try and make it fail, it just won't fail on me. Fires every round with no worries. Plus, your carrying 13+1 in a 45 in your hand. Extremely accurate, easy to shoot, not much recoil for a 45, and eats any ammo (2000 rounds, no failures).

    The XDM 45 4.5" is an outstanding pistol. It shoots like a 9mm, with match grade accuracy. Plus, it's so simple to take down and clean. I bought it for my duty use with the tactical team. However, it is so accurate and easy to shoot, I now use it for my competition gun over my 3 times as expensive 1911's! I absolutely love it. I will soon be putting some Trijicon HD night sights with the Orange front on it. I put a set of these on my XDS, and they are superb.

    I have trijicon NS on mine and those are the best. Super bright and light up before it gets close to low light.

    I have only heard one complaint out of the trijicon sights.

    And I quote, "mine quit working after 15 years. POS. I'll never by them again."

    a guy told me this at a gun show and I almost punched him for saying that. Those are good for 12 years and he got 15 out of them. Plus there only $100 so after 15 years you should be able to afford some more.
