    Recently purchased the 4.5" XDm 9mm and .40cal.....
    I have already fired a couple hundred rounds thru both,
    and really like the comfort and accuracy of these.

    I'm on the northeast coast of Maine...just outside ba habah.
    I ride a HD Road Glide in the warmer months, snowshoe the mountains in Acadia National Park when snow is on the ground, and shoot year round on our property.

    Looking forward to learning more about these fine pistols ....

    Welcome! Maine is great! I spent a Christmas break on Peake's Island many years ago, and had a great time chatting with the rough and ready folks on the Atlantic side. I collected mussels in water that was so cold it felt like broken glass, and fed half the island. Surprised to find nobody there ever thought to eat what were the finest mussels I have ever tasted.

    Sad thing is, back before the Santa Barbara oil spill, you could harvest hundreds of pounds of mussels right off the piers here in SoCal, dig clams in the "Venice Lagoon", and catch monstrous crabs on the breakwater by punching two holes in the bottom of a plastic bucket, tying a hot dog into it, and dropping it onto the rock where the crabs were sunning. People talk about the poor "Digger" Indians. They ate like emperors!

    Of course, you could also find yourself swimming in the middle of a school of a million stingrays. But I'm lucky that way. Twice swam out to discover that the funny thing in the water was a flotilla of tiny Portuguese Man-O'-War!
