    Correct...I wanted the XD subcompact and it doesn't come in .45, plus I already had a .45 so it's something different and .40 is also a little cheaper to shoot.

    so your 40 ammo is a bit cheaper than your 45?

    I love my XD. Good choice. I carry an XD-40 Service much of the time. I could only find the sc in 9mm when I was looking more than a year ago, so I went with the 4". I still think about getting the sc.
    I'll keep my freedom, my liberty, and my guns. You can keep the change.

    Thumbs up XD Range Report

    Ok, I had a chance to get to the gravel pit where I do most of my shooting for a little while today and put about 200 rounds through my new XD40sc, and I am very pleased with it. The gun feels and shoots great in my hands and will be even better I think once I get the Pearce pinky extensions for the 9 round mags. The XD has a pretty good punch to it, even when compared to my 1911 .45, but it was very manageable for me and the other guy I was shooting with. The accuracy is also very good for a pistol with a 3" barrel and I was shooting some pretty decent groups right from the start. I think this will be a great carry pistol, and I look forward to my permit arriving in the mail so I can take a trip to Wally World with it and see how I feel with it out in public. On a side note, the guy I was shooting with today brought along his recently purchased G26, and after shooting my XD told me that he wished he had bought an XDsc rather than the 26. I also shot his 26 and I agree with him that the XD feels better to me than the Glock...my apologies to you Glock fans out there.

    Absolutely true, I'm a Glock fan and I prefer my XD9 SC.

    It's the first gun I have considered buying two the same of.
