I don't have one, I believe they are great guns, but me opinion is they are a little too blocky for CCW. Someone else my get on here and say they are perfect for it though.

Buddy of mine bought one in 40 S&W. He loves it but it's not a compact or subcompact. So, IMHO, might be a little too large for conceal/carry.

I didn't think the m was thinner? The m basically means match grade trigger and barrel and easier disassembly from what I recall. Plus I think it has higher capacity mags too.

I carry an XD .40 Sub-Compact every day for about 12-16 hours a day in an IWB holster. I have no problems with this arrangement and really don't notice much that it is there. I really like the Springfield XD safety sysytem and the way it shoots. A pretty dang good trigger for the type of action it is.

it may not be, but i thought it was supposed to be like 1.1in wide.

i may be all kinds of confused on this:shrug:

The XDM also has interchangeable grips to fit your hand.

I have an XDm 40 full size. I didn't buy it as a carry weapon but from what I have seen of the compacts it should be fine for carry.

I really do like mine and as it relates to polymer guns I own I like it better than my Glocks. However the XDm doesn't hold a candle to my H&K USP45C as it relates to ergonomics, trigger, accuracy and all around quality. But that being said I am comparing a $600 gun to a $1000 gun, the extra four skins is worth every penny in my opinion if you want a really really nice polymer gun.

I have the XDM 9mm and I LOVE it. It's one of the better pistols I have ever shot and for the money, it is a great gun. I personally wouldn't use it as a carry pistol. I'd take a look at the sub-complacts if it were me.

I haven't seen the new sub-compact XDM just yet. I'm standing by to take a look at it though. You just need to find you one that fits your hand. I know that I'll be persecuted for what I am about to say, but I'll do it anyway. Take a look at the Bersa Thunder, I've shot the XD sub-compact and the Bersa Thunder and the Bersa has a little bit longer of a grip on it to catch your pinky finger. Also, you can get the extended magazine for the XD sub-caompact which also cures that problem.Just gotta find what fits you the best...

Right.. The XDM has a match grade barrel, innchangalble grips, will hold more rounds than the XD, and does not require you to pull the trigger to release the slide when field stripping it...

I have the XD-9 Service model... I compared the two when I purchased mine and didnt feel it was worth the extra money for the XDM... I love my XD... I bought it for a CCW and do not have any trouble hiding it... I can easily conceal it by a IWB holster... Grant it, I have some size, there for it is easy to conceal and comfprtable for me..

Its all a matter of preference... Springfield, Glock, S&W etc...

Rat has an XDM and seem to love it... Im sure he can offer some insight...
