I'm no marksman, but I was very impressed with the performance of a pistol that small.
Regarding the XDM, I prefer its ergonomics, aesthetics (subjective and irrelevant criterion), and I think it is a nice touch that the XDM pistols come with a "match grade" barrel. I don't have "extensive" experience with either of the variants. I still can only tolerate a grip safety on a 1911.
Thanks! As a noob, I'll take my small victories.
I just don't see the point in starting the target too far back at this point and 5-7yds seems like a somewhat realistic range.
Btw....given all your 'toys', if we're ever invaded....I'm heading to your place.

Its cool tho, if you ever see a younger dude with a FN 17s there its probably me so swing over and say whats up some time! I'm there at least once every 2 weeks with a bunch of my buddies causing havoc
If you ever want to hit it up some time, let me know. Most of the people I know don't shoot (I'm a noob myself) and my one nearby friend only has a shotgun. I only have a few handguns. I've never been to Maxon so I can't compare. I have been meaning to check it out, but it's pretty far from me.
Gat isn't bad. They have 3 ranges; each with 8 positions. The target...mechanism (?) is basic compared to On-Target's. It just has your basic forward/reverse control and they use a short length of PVC pipe to attach a target to the line. It gets hot during the summer days, though. I don't know if there's no A/C or if they don't bother much with it. On-Target seems to be much better ventilated, though. Gat isn't bad, though. Range time costs the same at both. There is a rumor that Gat may expand their site again so who knows what that'll mean.
