    Another trade

    Ok I started a thread yesterday about a possible trade. The update is the guy didn't show and is still thinking about it. I am thinking about another trade at the moment though. There is a mint condition subcompact XD 9mm at my shop and I might swap my judge for it. I like my judge and all but it is a fun only gun no real purpose for me. I have been itching to get an 9mm carry piece for me and or my old lady. I want to know what everyone thinks about the XD's?? is it worth the extra money to get the XDM? or for the subcompacts does it not really matter? let me know what you all think??

    There isn't an XDm that's a sub compact. The 3.8 XDm still has a full length grip. I'd say go for the XD. I liked mine when I had it, I just like my M&P more. I never once had a malfunction with mine and it performed flawlessly with any ammo I fed it.

    I like the M models much better than the standard. The standards feel poorly balanced and the M models have a Match grade barrel. I would rid that Judge and get you a nice 9mm like the XD you looked at or a Glock or Mand P maybe. That way you get to keep your Glock 20.

    Sorry about the Defender. Concerning the trade; you are talking about trading a Taurus. If the XD is so nice like you say then I should trade the Taurus asap.

    trade complete! I now own an subcompact XD 9mm and not a judge. Still hoping on the guy with the defender doesn't back out but it he does I will keep the glock until something else comes along.

    I have traded up my XD9 Subcompact for the new 3.8 XDM9. The sub was very top heavy. Rapidly firing and trying to keep the barrel down took much effort. With the XDM I found that havin a larger grip to offset the weight of the slide was a needed improvement in my shooting. Each to their own ofcourse.

    Definitely a trade up. I find the Judge to be a pointless novelty.
