    New Purchase Today

    I got a Visa gift card for Christmas and all of this writing electronic letters to our Gubmint officials regarding our 2A rights inspired me to purchase my Christmas present today. I went in my LGS and they had EXACTLY what I've been wanting (and looking at online). And it was darn well reasonably priced too.

    Springfield XDm-9 4.5" bbl in OD Green frame and black slide. Came with two 19 round mags and the box full of crap. Picked up a couple boxes of Hornaday Critical Duty 135gr while I was there. Hope to take it to the range tomorrow. They also have a stainless Remington 1911 for a great price I might have to get tomorrow.

    Since we say, "No pics, it didn't happen", here it is:

    Nice,bug.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    I've got the same model, it's my IDPA gun. You may want to think about replacing the striker retaining pins, they fail rather easily. Powder river Precision makes a "rolled" spring pin to replace the OEM part. PRP Parts for your XD/XDM - PRP~ Perfecting your XD and XDM!!!

    Merry Christmas to you! Enjoy. I would add some mags if/when you can swing it, just in case.

    Very nice. I have been going back and forth between the XD9 and a Glock 19 myself.
