    The XD gear is crap. Take it from a guy who owned two of them. Buy the XD for gun it is, not because of the accessories it comes with.

    I'll second that. I own a XD .40 service and couldn't be happier with the gun itself. I absolutely love mine! I'm accurate with it, I think it looks amazing, and I also love how easy tear down is when compared to a glock or anything else for that matter. But Todd is right, the XD gear sucks, especially the magazine loader. Well, I guess the magazine pouch it ok.... but its just that, a magazine pouch.... how bad can it be?

    Is there a possibility you will use the new weapon for concealed carry? You stated you wanted something more suited for target shooting, however if you're ever planning to carry it then your options could possibly be narrowed.

    this is the second handgun im going to buy. The first handgun i bought was the taurus pt-111 millenium pro



    this gun would work very well for concealed carry if i ever bothered to get a permit for that.

    This second gun im going to get i would actually PREfer it to be larger. i want a LOnger barrel and slightly larger handgrip (keep in mind that is My hand in the picture). and thats also one thing i found attractive about the xdm was the 3 different plates you could put on and try out but idk.

    so at this point yeah im either going to get the xdm 9mm, glock 34. the berretta 92fs or taurus pt92 (either one) are not completely out of the picture i just dont like the mag release button on them. that is one thing i like about the mag release on the glock is its extremely accessible and quick to get at with my thumb.

    I waaas eyeballing the sig p226 but its a little bit pricey for my taste i dont realllly want to spend $800

    ok i compared an xdm and a glock 17 at this other gunstore and after checking it out again the xdm actually does feel pretty good in my hand, the palm saftey is slightly goofy and im not used to it but its really not THAT bad.

    the only thing im thinking about really is the barrel length. there were a couple xdms at the store and the longest one i think had a 4.5 in barrel while the glock 34 has a 5.3in barrel. what is this actually going to translate to with taking the gun to the range? in terms of muzzle velocity, where you are aiming and what distance it can mechanically fire accurately at targets?

    You want dependability at a decent price,Springfield Armory XD's/XDM's and Glock. Unless of course you want a revolver then go with S&W or Ruger.

    While the differences in MV can be measured, you will not make any use of an extra three-quarter's of an inch in barrel length. IOW, don't make your decision based on that.....

    oh man i took it to the range today and shot about 250 rounds. what a sweet gun, definitely outshoots my pt-111. i was havin a blast. the thing can shoot real fast too because of the short trigger reset. lots of fun. i realized also that the grip plate thats on it the way it comes isnt the biggest one. i think ill get a little punch and put the bigger grip plate on. great gun

    A good resource for replacing lost or otherwise gone manuals. The guy that made the site has a LOT of really great pages. He's scanned and uploaded all kinds of manuals for all types of weapons.

    Worth checking out. You'll need the adobe reader to view.
