posjoey: any difference between this and the .40 cal?
katazone: No way, that thing looks evil !!!
thecraftmaster2: @SafeArmsReview Yea i know i've never heard of it either... I went with the
XD-M because I knew it would be an amazing gun... I'm going to call
customer service in the morning thanks for the reply.
SafeArmsReview: lol well u work w/ what u got but if ur really concerned, then send me
about 150K so I can build & equip a studio w/ the proper equipment. Mixing
board, digital recording, heck w/ that money I could even get a sweet green
screen w/ pro lighting, teleprompter, a green room & maybe even my own
assistant who brings me a double latte w/ a spritz of hazelnut on top as I
go over the script. That would be really nice. Anyway when ur ready to send
the money shoot me a pm so we can get this fixed. :D
SafeArmsReview: wow now that sounds cool - I hope they have matches in my area. thanks for
posting cause I will definetly look into that. :D
Azamat Bagatov: Why do you have music in the review?
SafeArmsReview: @dadiddlydooda Its a track from my imac video editing program :)
NoChikenStrips: Is it just me, or do i find those tiny white dots in the rear sight
annoying. I went and bought paint thinner to remove those white dots. Also
i chose the 40 over the 9 because i reload and pay about 13 cents per
round, and packs more of a punch.
chainfire95: You do know we can turn off annotations right?
SafeArmsReview: btw I taught my wife & kid never point a gun at nothing your willing to
shoot, how to clear & strip down/reassemble the XD-M. Safety First ;)
Tim Duncan: 19 round magazine? Wow. Talk about firepower.
SafeArmsReview: well there are pros & cons to everything - there is no perfect 'silver
bullet' grip or stance imo. BTW I dont have a problem with two quick shots,
but I also know I can improve more. The goal is to shoot smooth with steel
on target quicly. ;) I hope to do some shooting vids in the near future
with the XD 9mm, the .45 and other stuff. :D
basszack: you forgot the most important rule of safety, #1 don't go hunting with
SafeArmsReview: depends - at times they bother me, but in low light they help a bit. btw I
like the 9mm but I also have an XD 45 subcompact which is nice too. I am
hoping to get a glock 22 by spring and get the 9mm and 357 conversion
barrel for it too = sweet. :)
Springr1911: Some of the best training anyone can receive is join IDPA. You will learn
the basics, have fun, and get that much needed practice that most people
lack. I'm not talking about shooting at paper targets at a table; it's
walking, running, kneeling, using cover, reloading and shooting. You'll
have the time of your life out their. I just picked up this gun a few days
ago to shoot ESP. I can't wait to see how she handles.
sogop40: i love striker fires
DMFL22: do you have any info on the M&P's? Im thinking about getting one cause they
feel so good in hand! Shoot well too!!
megaspencer: Wow nice job you put a lot of effort in mixing this. well done
Andrew Vrancik: @SafeArmsReview Ok, thank you. I have just recently purchased an FNP-9 so
this really isn't much of an issue. Again, thank you.
kylelee1911: 2:57 pause thats why i hate dovetail sights too much wiggle room
robpatozz: Great video Steve...
NOSYRB10656: 20 rounds...you almost dont even need an extra mag! Alomost.
dadiddlydooda: What is the opening song plz?
joesphx19: This gun is awesome with a viridian green laser. No question the accuracy
tops an out of box Glock, reliability should rival Glock. Even though this
is a new model, the HS 2000 has been with us for a long time and it has a
terrif track record.
SafeArmsReview: @bmstylee wow, I have never heard of anyone, LE, military or CCW instructor
suggest such a thing. I can get a XD or XDM, or Glock for about $550 and
thats not much to ask. I look at the torture tests of both and they both
pass the test. I cannot say the same of lower cost brands. However it is a
personal decision, so whatever floats your boat, I guess. :)
SafeArmsReview: LOL your right about that ;)
SafeArmsReview: and yet it performs flawlessly ;) I will take function over form any day
SafeArmsReview: Yea its hard to get that last round. Now after having this for a while and
shooting other pistols, I think the trigger could be better. I would like
to see springfield make a pistols with 3.5 lb trigger already installed - I
think that would be a big seller. :)
d3rk4: XD9 is awesome. Just bought one myself. It's more ergonomic than the GLOCK.
Doesn't matter how well made your glock is, if you aren't comfortable
shooting it your shots will be crap. Also, one thing I didn't know, the XD
was designed around the American shooting style.
SafeArmsReview: I'm in Colorado - love the rocky mountains. :)
TANICHO1234: You did a great review. I new to guns and I really appreciate how you break
down technicall terms. This is a great review.
Springr1911: Its one of the easiest things to do. Go to IDPA(dot)com fill out the info,
its $40.00 for a membership a year, and the matches usually cost less then
a standard range fee. Our matches are about 150-200 rounds and ton fun
Steven Conroy: Could/Would you tell me where I could get a list of Everything I would need
to build my own Complete, ready to fire, AR-15 ? I have been CCW card
carrier for 6 years but other than Shotguns, and 22 semi auto hunting
rifle, I have never had much interest in long guns until Now. If you would
be so kind as to steer me in the right direction, would you also tell me
any particular brands to steer clear of. If you do not want to do this, I
will understand, Be Blessed and Safe,,, Steven
opmike343: Every time you fire a round, you're doing irreparable damage to your
hearing. Yeah, you might not notice it over the short term. But your
hearing WILL be worse than those who do use hearing protection. You might
also end up with a constant ringing or tone in your ears as well. Assuming
you're the same species as the rest of us, at least.
goatkiller68: man shut the freak up. i can not stand glock fan boys like you. not all of
you guys but its so annoying that all you can do is say glock is awsome
when there are clearly other good guns. yes glock has proven it self and i
do like them my self but i also do like the xdm as well as others. to say
its a copy of a glock is retarted. all companys take crap from each other
regardless of what the item is from knives, guns, tv's, phones,
Pivotist: LOL XD xD
Oscar Martinez: REALLY good stuff. Keep these great videos coming!
MAKAVELI2DAWN: dat gun is uuuuugly!
SafeArmsReview: Last time I checked they were around $550 to $650 - so it pays to shop
around for the best deal. :)
SafeArmsReview: thanks for the compliments :)
SafeArmsReview: Sounds like your gonna have some fun too - nice upgrades. I too am hoping
to get a new guide rod and a trigger job. Thanks for watching and
SafeArmsReview: Both At first I thot this would be kinda of big to CC but there are ppl who
have M1911s as their CCW. I guess it comes down to what your comfortable
Bassesplyr: very profesional review. I like it by far one of the best ones out there.
CrystalHunter1989: Do you carry this concealed or use it only for home defense?
Sam Swanson: yeah man, sweet gun, ive put about 20k rounds through mine so far and its
an excellent range gun
crashtest2302: It's just a crapty copy of the glock
SafeArmsReview: never use hearing protection and your just fine... yea right and I have a
bridge to sell ya ;)
HiCapacity: Nice review so far man. What's your hat say? I turned annotations off and I
still can't see it. Mike
3091181: Glad I found your channel. Good review, I dug it. I gotta say that
aggressive grip is a double edged sword. In a neutral grip how are you
going to double tap that bad boy?
Andrew Vrancik: If the trigger safety or the grip safety fail or if both fail will the gun
still be operable? Thats my only question at the moment.
