XDm Elite .40 Cal 4" or 5"would buy one in a hot second.
I'm not interested in anything .40cal except for it's big brother the 10mm!
I really like the .40. It is accurate and a great personal defense round. I have an early XD four-inch gun that shoots tight groups if I do my part. I also have a 10mm 1911 that I had fitted with a .40 barrel and it is one of my two most accurate guns. My most accurate handgun is a S&W 625 that shoots cloverleaf groups all day long. I love them all!
In the end it's all about what you like and prefer!

They don't make cars all in one color and trim level for the reason being we all have our own unique taste. @RandomHero I hope SA makes this gun you! It probably wouldn't be to much for SA to make a conversion kit in .40cal for an existing XDM to satisfy that market as an option.

Interestingly enough, the .40 caliber has a long history in this country. Winchester chambered the .38-.40 WCF in their lever actions and Colt added the caliber to the Model P. In 1874, a cowboy could carry one caliber of ammunition for his/her sidearm and rifle.
