    Sub Compact Bersa 380 CC, small, DA/SA, safety, decocker, thin, light, reliable. I have put hundreds of rounds through mine with out a hiccup. The 380 is not my first choice for SD, but it is my favorite sub compact.
    Don't tread on me or mine.

    From your list, the XD. They are very nice guns.

    Springfield & Beretta's idea of a "sub-compact" differs greatly from mine. Both the XD and PX4 are in that chubby double stack category that is populated by Glock, M&P,XDM ect.. If that is what you're looking for, then there is a lot of good choices. But If you want a real slim and compact handgun that also has an accessory rail, look a the Walther PPS or Kel Tec PF9,

    Ruger SR9C.
    It has a rail, it's slim, and it has a manual safety, which I like for appendix carry.

    I haven't shot the any Berettas but they are definitely on my list of "will own someday". I do really like my XD subcompact, but the rail on it is not a full rail and you are limited by what tactical lights you can put on it. I have only seen the new XDm subcompact in pictures, but from what I can tell with the 3.8" barrel subcompact model is identical to the full size XDm 3.8" model, it will take any full size tactical lights. It might be worth some consideration.

    The XD sc is a nice firearm. My wife loves it. If I had shot it before a Glock, we would both love them.

    What about the Glock 30SF? It has a rail and will accept Glock 21 magazines if you want 13 rounds. Try to find a large range where you could rent the ones you are interested in. See if any of your friends have one they can take to the range with you.

    You have a lot of options, giving a more specific price range and determining any additional features (single-stack, hammer-fired, striker-fired, polymer frame, metal frame, etc) might let us be of more help.

    Between those two choices, the XD. It's the better choice over the PX4.

    Other than those:
    S&W M&P 9c/.40c
    Kel-Tec PF9
    Ruger SR9c
    Walther PPS
    Walther P99c
    Springfield XDM Compact 3.8
    Glock 29/30
    Bersa Thunder Ultra Compact (9mm/.40S&W/.45ACP)

    My vote would be SR9c or Bersa Thunder UC for a double-stack on a budget (even XD might would fit that). It's a toss up between Glock 30, S&W M&Pc, or Springfield XDM 3.8 Compact for a double-stack. Or PF9 for budget single stack, and Walther PPS for the nicer option single stack.
