    With my smaller hands, I really like the gen4 Glocks. My carry gun is a g26 gen 4. I want to switch to a .45. I've had a gen 4 g30 on order for a while and they don't know when it might come in. My gun store is aiming me at an XDM 3.8 compact instead. They're about $60 more and all the xd forums say they have to have a drop in trigger kit for another $125. Are their triggers that bad? I've shot Cowboy Action for years and until last year when Wi got concealed carry I didn't have any square guns except for a 1911 for Wild Bunch matches. I went to Glock cause I like the trigger. Sorry for the long post. Any thoughts on either gun?

    Stock triggers on XDMs aren't bad at all. They do have a shorter reach to the trigger, and thus fit some hands better. Try the two and compare dry fire; it would be ideal if you could live fire both side by side on a rental range.

    best,

    No rentals around here, so I think I'll try to wait for a g30 to come in, If I can't wait ,I'll grab the xdm. Thanks for the help.
