We both decided on the Springfield XDm 9mm Competition 5.25"

He got the stainless slide, I got the all black one (I want to do red lettering on the slide like I did on my AR-15 receiver so I chose all black)

Pretty excited. They should arrive mid week.

Happy 4th anniversary to us!

He said for our 5th we'll get a dueling set :D

I've got an extended 4.02" stainless steel Storm Lake 40-9mm barrel,
tungsten competition guide rod, Ghost Rocket 3.5 connector,
smooth trigger and XS Big Dot sights on my Glock G27.

It's for carry and no competition gun.
But it's soooo much better than factory.
When you get used to that kind of feel and accuracy?
There's just no going back - LOL!

The 5.25" 9mm is a freaking laser!
Enjoy!

I've got a German made factory Sig Sauer stainless steel extended 5.47"
barrel in my P220. It's the most accurate gun I own.

Picked them up last night and went straight to the range. Put about 200 rounds thru mine, went very well.

I was shooting a little low left, don't think that I was yanking the trigger but I want to go again before I start messing with the sights at all.

This has to be one of the coolest post! My girlfriend and I both just started getting into shooting and I can only hope that one day these are the kind of anniversary presents we are getting each other! Congrats on the new guns! You'll have to let us know how the first comp goes.

Congrats, A friend at work just bought an XDM in 40 cal. and loves it. I saw it, very nice firearm. We will more than likely shoot this weekend, so I may get to shoot his and he will shoot my K9.

my arms get tired before I run out of ammo. 19 rounds is a LOT! I'm so used to having only 7 in my MK9 :D

Sweet set there. I'm jealous whenever I shoot my buddy's XD 40, but he envies my CM9 since he went with the KelTec for carry.

I thought it was can't drive?
Although Danica might have something to say about that.

If Danica, looked like Rosie O, we would not be even talking bout her driving abilities. She will be IMO about a 17th and below NASCAR. Her looks has here making the\big bucks, which is not a bad thing. iF U GOT UM,,,, SHOW UM. I do have to admit she would look awesome over the back of a Harley. Just sayin:banplease::banplease:

I have heard that women actually tend to be better pistol shooters.

That sure is a nice pair of XDm's. I've been looking at these myself. Not sure if I like the comp. 5.25" or the standard 4.5" for what I would use it for. Plus one for the sights on the comp. model. You will have to let us know how they works out for you when you start tweaking them in.

still have a little cleanup to do, but it's looking good so far.

btw, this is RED (my camera phone didn't do all that great). I hate pink.
