    had to sell my xd40sc....

    as the title states, the girls car went down, so I sold the gun to pay for repairs. Luckily I got $500 out of it and didnt lose a dime as I bought it for $475 new. Now I am looking for another gun. I liked my xd quite a bit. It was my first pistol. I'd almost like the get another but now that I have an option Im thinking of trying something else. I've accually been looking at the xd9sc for more capacity, and being able to maintain better follow up shots. The 40 was pretty snappy and I wasnt able to have really great follow shots. Im looking to stay within $450-550 for the replacement. I would kind of like to be able to carry the gun not only for cc, but as a service pistol for security work.
    So I guess before we get into other guns altogather
    what do you all think in this situation xd40sc vs xd9sc?
    knockdown vs capacity
    less snappy, better follow shots with the 9 most likely
    cost of ammo for the range.
    what do yall think?

    Glock 19, can't go wrong...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Nothing wrong with the 9mm as a service gun... I'd look at the G19, M&P and maybe the new Ruger SR9c...

    I have an XD9sc and I love it. 9mm ammo is currently cheaper, you'll get more per magazine, and follow up shots are generally quicker. (Depends on the shooter though.) Personally, I don't see the advantage of a .40, but that's just me.

    If there's a range near you, go rent some guns and see if anything else calls your name.

    Shot placement; penetration.

    .380 (w FMJ ammo), .38 Spl, .357 Mag, .357 Sig, 9mm, .40, .45 - they all have very similar penetration.

    If you can get faster follow-up shots with the 9mm than the .40, I would suggest the 9mm. Ammo is cheaper, so you can afford more training. The extra on-board capacity is nice, too.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I'd get an XD40 SC. Not sure if it's "better" than one in 9mm, but I just like the way .40 caliber bullets look.

    If you can't be repeatably accurate with .40, by all means go 9mm. I was never accurate myself with the .40 I had, but could wipe the sweat of a fly's brow with my 9mm.

    Get thee XD9sc. I LOVE that gun! I thought about the 40 but am glad I went w/ the 9. Thinking about getting the XDM9 as probably my next major purchase.

    Take a look at the Sig P-250 compact. With regard to size, it's alot like a Glock 19. Small enough carry comfortably, yet big enough for a duty weapon.

    I've shot and carried both the 9 and 40 XDSC. The edge went to the 9 for two reasons:
    1. Round count 10+1 vs 13+1
    2. I'm slightly better on quick followups with the 9. The difference isn't much, but it's there. The 40 IS a little snappy. Although I DO favor the 40 as a carry caliber, the edge did go to the 9. Both would serve you well.
