    Picture of xd9 subcompact and Glock 19

    Does anyone happen to have a picture or pictures of a XD9 subcompact compared with a Glock 19 (or even a Glock 26). Trying to get a feel for the size difference. Thanks!!!

    Quite a few pics floating around of XD SC and Glock 26, do search.

    Suffice it to say, there's not 1/4" diff on any dimension between the two, Glock 26 a little longer, XD SC a little higher, both same thickness.

    Dunno if this might help, but here's pic of my XD SC 9 and XD Service 9. The Service 9 is pretty much same as Glock 19. Of course the grip size is the single biggest factor in CC. I find the Service too big for CC for me, but ONLY because of grip length.

    There's a pretty good comparison of the two on youtube. I don't recall the name, just do a search, but her physically handles and compares both of them, including a side-by-side comparison of the size from all angles.
    Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.

    What is that on the grip of your XD? Some kind of grip tape? It looks like it gives a pretty good hold. Im looking for something but dont want it to look "aftermarket" if you know what im saying. That looks good.

    Yeah, it's 3M Safety Walk #310.
    Which I can't find ANYwhere, except online in large rolls for $100 or more.
    "TractionGrips" on eBay sells it pre cut for Glock/XD.
    Also sells small strips uncut, trace and cut yourself.
    tractiongrips.com
    http://home.comcast.net/~tractiongrips/
    (but his eBay store is a little cheaper)
    I only put it on the outside grip and the inside thumb depression. Have since done same to the Service 9.

    I've tried several things. Lots of folks say to use skateboard tape but it's not only VERY abrasive, but the grit comes off, can scratch gun in holster.

    Here's a link to a "review" on my grip tape adventures I did on TNGunOwners.com, with pics:
