Well, I broke the dry spell a few days ago; hadnít bought a gun since the P229 Legion I got from S4 last year.

The new addition is a Springfield XDM in 10mm. It has a 4.5 inch barrel, 15+1 capacity, and actually carries comfortably IWB.

I want to get an OWB holster, but since the Panther boys canít currently make one for this particular pistol, Iím going to just wait, and see if they donít get that situation sorted after a bit. I think they might, as I believe this pistol (and possibly itís bigger brother) is going to be pretty popular.

It shoots very well, and recoil was no problem at all. Iíd call it less than my three inch 1911 in .45acp. So far Iíve shot Sig 180gr JFP, and Sig 180gr JHP, with nary a bobble.

Edit: I forgot to mention that the pistol came with a ďglock-likeĒ trigger guard with that aggravating ďprotrusionĒ at the bottom front. I didnít like that, so I reshaped the front of the trigger guard.
