On Veterans Day, I treated myself to a Bi-Tone XDm 5.25 in 9mm. Took it out to the POW Range (Privately Owned Weapons) at Fort Lee today and let it gobble up 300 rounds of 5 different types of 115 gr FMJ target loads. Without even a hiccup, it perfomed faultlessly and dramatically accurate like like the Springfiled ads would lead one to believe. Like my other XDm models in 9mm, .40 & .45 the out of the box reliability and accuracy was impressive to say the least. It also commanded the attention of several other attendees whom shot it with some of their personal ammo as well as some GI loads. Oh, to be young again with eagle eyes and rock steady sighting. Some of these guys took it out to 40 yards and were dropping center MOA's as if it were at the 10 yard stake. Anyone who likes the XDm series will like this 5.25 Competition as well. Yeah, I'm some what prejiduce. Lots of nice semi's out there. BTW, just had a 40 year reunion (3 years late) with my service outfit. You know something? We all sure look different! Thank goodness for 40 years old photos!
