Lasers for an XDm 9 mm

I am looking to get a laser for my XDm 9 mm Full size. This is a home defense handgun.
I see some that are rail mounted and maybe one that fits in the spring tube.
What are the reliable ones?

How much is your budget? You can spend $30 - $1000.

Rough uneducated guess is 250 to 400. Unless a good used one pops up.

My 2 bits on laser aimers AKA; laser sights...

For a HD(defense) type S-A XDm pistol, I'd look into a green dot type unit from Lasermax or maybe a white light/red dot laser system.

Green dots are brighter & more powerful but a red dot type could work.
The Lasermax guide-rod types are okay but the laser dot pulses.
Human eyes are drawn to movement but I prefer the steady bright light.
Check here for more options/prices/equipment;

ps; Get a decent laser aiming unit not some cheap Mall-Ninja crap. CT also offers free DVDs to explain lasers & the tactical/defense use.
