Test Protocol: Springfield Armory XDM Elite Compact 10 and The Chest Rig by Crossbreed Holsters
When testing a firearm I start off with manual of arms practice and lots of dry firing using the MantisX10 Elite paired with a training laser. In the case of this Springfield Armory XDM Elite Compact 10mm, I dry fired over 2,000 times before I ever chambered a single live fire cartridge. Usually I do 1,000 dry fires, but was waiting on 10mm ammo. You can follow along by joining the “AmbGun” MantisX10 group (you don’t have to have the MantisX10 to register)…
And before I even dry fire, I field strip, clean the firearm of all factory preservatives and apply a coat of Sentry Solutions Tuf-Glide Dry Lube. Doesn’t attract dirt, makes it almost self-cleaning, and really smooths things out. The Sentry spray bottles leak badly, so I use an old school metal pistol pump oiler.
I am using a Crossbreed “The Chest Rig” holster with the XDM. After having been flagged multiple times at the range by the safety oblivious, I wanted to emphasize being muzzle-aware when using a chest holster and capitalizing on a disengaged grip safety when holstering.
I also like to check to see if a firearm returns to battery after doing a chamber check with a round in the chamber and a full magazine. And yes, I know the XDM has a loaded chamber indicator...more on that in the forthcoming review.
One of my favorite drills derives from the US Air Marshalls test...draw, point shoot, transition to other hand, mag change, kneel, double tap. Then, given my ambidextral gunfighter advocacy, some left and right hand shooting from cover exercises. And of course, a mountain bike drive by.
Reviews on the Springfield Armory XDM Elite Compact 10mm and the Crossbreed “The Chest Rig” holster are forthcoming. I love both products. I love the full, perfectly mirrored ambi controls on the XDM and the comfort and saddlery leather smell of “The Chest Rig”. In the future videos I’ll be explaining why you should carry and present left handed once you’re fully ambidextrous. You can get a preview of why at…
