    I have an XDM-9 and Every day before I carry I eject the mag and check the pipe to make sure there is nothing.

    My question is there is no way to un-cock the gun so I have to pull the trigger. Will dry firing an XDM damage it?

    I have dry fired my XD9 thousands of times doing different types of drills. I wouldn't worry about your XDM. If something did break I bet Springfield would most likely fix it for free.

    You should have no problems dry firing your pistol.

    You should do it alot like rocknsnow said, I dry practice alot, it will help you on the range and in defense should you need it. I do it with all my pistols with no problems.

    Of course, if you carried with one in the chamber instead of unloaded, you wouldn't need to do that. Carrying with the chamber empty is like taking all the gasoline out of your car's tank until you need to go somewhere, and then refilling it each time.

    Dry firing the gun is part of the process of field stripping the gun. You are fine... Don't worry about it, they wouldn't make a gun that needs to be dry fired in order to take it apart if dry firing hurts the gun

    good point, but the xdM doesnt need the trigger pull to take it apart.

    Good to know, I was under the impression that it was pretty much mechanically identical to the regular XD pistols, I'll have to look into them more.

    The-m-factor.com i think it is. I had two xd's, one in 9 and one in 40, both subcompact models. My dad has the M in 9mm, and if/when I eventually add an XD to my arsenal, I'll get an M. The XD-GEAR the M comes with is a little nicer than the original, in my opinion. and the mag capacity is much better with the M's.

    Yeah, the XDm gets more and more tempting everyday. I love the mag capacity and the fact that you can get anXDm .40 with the barrel conversion and be able to shoot both .40 and 9mm. The only thing that is holding me back is that I don't carry my XD-9 subcompact that much, asits a lot easier to slip an LCP in my front pocket and call it a day while in summer clothing or business casual. The same would be more true with an XDm, as it is bigger.
