    Scratched my 10mm itch . . . .

    Bought a new Springfield XDm 10mm 4.5” barrel. They had a 5.2” barreled version which came with adjustable rear sights but they have a slide cut out in the distal portion of the slide but I didn’t care for it. Has a “Match” barrel (see pix below) and comes with 2X15 round magazines. Bought some 200 gr FMJ PMC rounds for range and medium game and some 180 gr Sig V Crown JHPS.
    Paid ~ $535 for it and that beat the lowest priced Glock 20s & 40s, steel framed 1911s and Sig P220 in 10mm.

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!

    That's a caliber that I've been pondering for some time now. Congratulations on the new pistol!

    I thought I was over that itch, then the new version of the Colt Delta Elite dragged me back and then a Remington R1 Hunter. All because I missed my 10mm Witness. I still don't know why I got back into 10mm when I have some nice .357 revolvers. Then again, there is the darn 1911 thing.

    The XD should be a good pistol. If you feel the need for another, check out RIA in a 1911. Have fun with it, in my area 10mm ammo is cheaper than .357. Armscor, Sellier & Bellot, and Privi Partizan makes good inexpensive ammo and the brass reloads nice.

    Easy Doc...your medical training is showing..."Distal portion"...

    For grins I sourced a 10mm conversion slide for my EAA Compact Witness. At $438.00 before shipping a RIA in 10mm makes much more sense (unless I happened to find someone who wanted to swap for a 45 ACP slide/barrel)
