I really thought I had my choice of new carry narrowed to a XDM 3.8, then I picked up a Hi Power. Both feel great in the hands but the Hi Power just feels oh so much better.
I've had both a XD and a 1911 so I'm familiar with both platforms. Since I do not have the money for a Browning I could purchase a FM 90 from JGsales. XDM will run me about $580 for a Bitone while the FM90 is $360 shipped. With the extra money left over from the FM90 I could customize it and get a nice holster.
XDM 19+1 FM90 13+1
XDM Grip Safety FM90 Thumb Safety
XDM 28oz FM90 32oz
Only if I just handled the XDM and not picked up the Hi Power. I would have it purchased already.
