    I seriously considered the XDsc. But when it came time buy I went with the Glock 27 instead. The XDsc IMO is not sub-compact. Its nearly as large as my Glock 23. Sorry- I see you were asking about the XDM compact and not the XDsc. My eyes are getting worse as I get older.

    It is only available currently in 9mm. If you want .40 S&W or .45 ACP, you will have to either wait until sometime in the future, or consider getting a standard XD compact instead, like this one below in .45 ACP:

    Two things that I don't like about the pistols compared the regular XD compact:

    1) More agressive texture to the grip. I hate the way that it feels. The grip on the regular XD shown above is more comfortable to me.

    2) Shorter 3.8 inch barrel compared to 4" on the XD compact.

    However, one can argue that the barrel length difference is minor. And if you want to make the grip more comfortable, just slip a Limbsaver Pro Handgun Grip Sleeve over it.

    The standard XD compacts are also available with a manual safety option, while a manual safety is not available for the XDm. For folks who demand to have a manual safety, that can be an issue.
