I was at my LGS the other day and decide to buy myself an early birthday present. I have a couple of .380's that I usually carry, but I was wanting something a little heavier and as I was looking at the limited selection in stock I came across the Springfield 4.5" XDm 9MM at what I considered a good price considering everything that comes with it. The feel was great and I liked the way the grip fit my hand considering it was has a double stacked, 19 round mag. This weekend I had a chance to take it to the range and I must admit I loved it! I put 100 rounds through with no hiccups at all. Would have put more through but who could afford it! At 25 feet everything was in the 10 ring and it had to be one of the smoothest 9mm that I have fired. I especially loved how easy it is to take down and clean. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a 9MM.
