I love My XDM 40.. I bought the 3.8 inch barrel with the full size grip. Only a couple things you need to watch thats the metal mags will rattle when loaded, and the gun I have doesn't like to drop a full mag so I have have to work the slide a time or two before dropping it.
I love shooting mine. I get to shoot my Hubby's Glock 22 often, and I am not sure which one I love to shoot more.
I would say go back with the Glock. I just picked up my girlfriend a Glock 19 for Christmas, and I like it better than my Beretta. I have never cared for Springfields at all, but that is just a personal opinion. If you think that you might even want to carry, you are best getting something that conceals well now. That is why I would suggest the Glock 19 or Glock 26 for 9mm. I personally will be picking up the Glock 36 as my next gun, as I am ready to carry a gun without a thumbswitch safety on it.
look into the smith and wesson M&P's. I carry a M&P 40c as my everyday. im personally not a fan of glock. everyone and their uncle has one and they are no better than the XD or M&P. (not to mention they are ugly and boring) i personally like guns you can talk to people about. like HK's or 1911 but those can get expensive.
PS: go ahead and post your "I hate you Because you dont like glock" replies, im just not a fan.
^^ I hate you because you don't like Glocks. Just kidding. Everyone has an opinion. I don't really care for the s&w either, but that is the great thing about choosing a gun. Everyone has difference preferences, and there are so many choices on the market that there is sure to be a gun for everyone. I really want a Kimber, based on the fact that it is a beautiful gun. However, I have never shot one. If I shoot one and dislike it, the looks alone will not get me to purchase it. Try stuff out a lot. Shoot and shoot some more to figure out what you like. $50 to find out you don't like something from a range rental is cheaper than the $500 or more that you would have otherwise spent on it.
i have a Kmber Pro CDP. I LOVE IT. it shoots .40 and feels like its shooting 9mm. extremely smooth, just an all around gorgeous gun. but it cost me $800
I forgot which one I wanted. I want it in the traditional .45 cap and with a short enough barrel that I can comfortably carry. I will buy it as a graduation present for myself when I get out of school if there are any left.
