      LOL I hear you not a sickness just law enforcement here aren't in high crime areas and do not treat people as though they are. Like I said there are places in the world where not everyone is a a$$ho!3. I guess the Fire dept. would freak if you walked into a fire dept. and asked do you have a public safety course on how to prevent house fires. Hey there where you live they might detain you wait for the cops to come and search you to make sure you did not have any arsenal equipment on you hey maybe you are concealing a 10 gallon gas can and some matches, WOW I can't imagine being in a place where everyone is wound up tighter than a banjo string. I know you know what a Banjo is don't you? Hey maybe if I walked into a Music store and asked if they had a instructor that taught Piano lessons they would call the cops thinking I was concealing a Piano on me or something, or maybe looking to steal one LOL.

      is that trigger that extends more towards the muzzle some sort of safety? that looks REALLY weird, and doesn't seem to make much sense, how are you supposed to function test the safety mechanism if the saftey is on the trigger?

      Im not sure if I understand the question....that is only one of the 2 external safety functions of the weapon, the other is a safety on the backside of the grip.

      Both of the safetys must be engaged in order for the weapon to fire.

      To answer your question, that is the trigger safety. Both that safety and the grip safety must be engaged or the weapon will not fire. More commonly called a "drop" safety if I recall. Meaning the weapon cannot fire if dropped. It took me a little getting used to as well.

      Nice choice. My first was recently as well. the 3.8 xdm 9. I love it. Saw the 40 was just released too.

      nice gun

      I bought an XDM 9mm and really thought it was a nice gun, Never had a problem with it and it shot and cleaned up really nicely..however i was bitten by the Kimber bug and sold it.. I enjoy my Kimbers and they shoot great also... but i do regret selling that XDM 9.. one reason was it was a little too large to carry concealed, but now with the new smaller 3.8 i am thinking of getting another one. Gonna check them out at the gun show this weekend.
      Good luck with yours I am sure you will really enjoy it.

      I recently bought a XD 9 sc and love it! I too tried several different guns and kept coming back to the xd. I have fired about 250 rounds and it has been flawless. Easy tight groups at 10 yards. To be sure there are prettier guns but I don't think that there are any better for the price. Enjoy.
