After throwing a good whine about 9mms last week, I went to the shoot last Sunday. Did ok, not great but not lousy. Well, I talked to a friend that is quite a bit quicker than me. We are about the same for accuracy. He runs an XDM 9mm. After the shoot, he offered to let me run a magazine through it. I said sure, why not. Never messed with an XDM. He set up a standard IDPA target at about 15 yards. The head had no holes, so that was to be the bull. I ran about four to get a feel for the (very nice) trigger. Then doubles to empty the magazine. And empty it I did. What a honey! Smooth and as accurate as my 229. Next day, down to the local shop. He had a 3.8, but I wanted the full size. Should be here next week. But what he does have in stock is Ranger-T 124 grain +P ammo, 22 bucks for 50. Grabbed a couple of boxes. Good to have a 9 again.
