    XDm would be where I'd be putting my money.

    S&W's M&P's have really caught my eye as well, but haven't gotten hands on time with one. I like the way they feel but I would shoot one first.

    I don't think I explained very well. The measurement you are giving is what I would call the thickness of the grip. I think what I was describing might be called the depth of the grip( from back to front).

    Glock 19 is the best gun.

    XDsc fits my hand better (grip size and angle). It comes down to personal preference on feel. Can't go wrong with either. I personally chose the XD40sc as a good all-purpose weapon and round. Good for SD, CC, HD, auto, etc. With the short mag, it's 9+1 of .40 and the extended is 12+1 of .40. I find the 40 to be a good shooter, accurate, controllable, etc. I already had other 9mms, so I went for the next round up in this platform. Shoot them at a rental range and you'll know for sure.

    Well I have another one to add to the mix now. Found a very lightly used (looks new) G27. Fits my hand better than the G19 and has night sights and one mag. Is 475 a good deal on this gun. It really looks new to me now blemishes that I could find. It is at a local dealer.

    A Sig P226 or P229 would fit the bill perfectly. I can not say enough good things about them.

    I looked at all of those you mentioned and like BigDude, I went with the SA XD40 SC, it's sweet.
