    I just bought one for my girlfriend for Christmas. She is 5'3 a buck fifteen. She loves this little gun. The recoil isn't bad at all and its easy to conceal. It also came with an extra mag that holds a few more rounds and extends the handle so I can shoot it. When she lets me. I think once since Christmas!

    My wife shoots and carries an XD .40 sub compact. She loves it. It fits her hand and she is scary accurate with it.

    If she likes it and it fits her hand, I say go for it. She picked it out, she will carry it!

    yes, my friends wife OWNS one...she loves it..she got it after shooting my Glock 23 and a mutual friends Glock 26. she didnt like the Glocks grips/grip angle she DID like the XD's and M&P's grip angles though and ended up getting a better deal on the XD. I like it also I tried to get her to trade me for the Glock but she would not :( oh well. Her comment on XD VS Glock was...the glock feels like its trying to squirm out of my hand when I shoot it the XD is like a extension of my hand/like a glove.

    The barrel flips upward after you fire the gun.

    My G23 has a lot of muzzle flip. After you pull the trigger, the muzzle goes up and you have to bring your aim down so you can get the next shot off.

    In contrast, my Sig has no muzzle flip. It's smoooooth.

    Thanks Patti. I am learning many new things and terms here.

    My LCP sure does that, the left hand is like a brake. By the time I re-point to the target and get the trigger pulled, a threat could advance another 10 ft!!

    Have her take a look at a Kahr PM9 or Kel-Tec PF-9.
