    Yes, I have one and carry it in rotation with several other weapons. When i do carry it , using a Mtac IWB works great also will use a OWB , no complaints, if you add the pinkie extensions it makes the grip a little longer i have both mags with and without the extension. great gun never an issue with 2k rounds thru it.

    Compact and XD are sort of oxymoronic.

    I have one of the bi-tone XD45 compacts that I carry tucked in a MTAC holster. I love it!

    I usually carry mine more in the winter months under heavier clothing or if I'm out for shorter periods of time. Since getting my Glock 27, I have carried the XD compact less and less.

    Here is my usual carry assortment...22 RTF2, XD Compact .45, 27, 642 & LCP

    That's why they have the SUB-compact (in 9 and 40 at least).

    I have one and love it. It's pretty much replaced my 1911 as my carry gun. I carry it in both a SOB and a OWB.

    I have the 9mm sub, .45 compact, .40 compact, .357sig service, .40 service, .45 service, XDm40, and a few other XDs I cant remember the caliber or size. I have them stored in my safe and hardly ever shoot.

    Ever since Springfield came out with the XD line, I made it my personal mission in life to acquire all calibers and models. I currently own 46 pistols, 17 rifles, 6 shotguns, 3 bows, 2 crossbows, and a partridge in a pear tree.

    I have one but I now EDC with my 1911 due to its smaller and thinner profile.

    Well, I have the Service size with the thumb safety, but it's not the compact grip. It's the only striker fired pistol I own that I'd carry. Outstanding pistol! Accurate, reliable, high-cap, relatively light recoil, etc. It's a great all around pistol.

    I have a xd45c in my carry rotation, awesome gun... IMO the g30 and the m&p45 compact can't compare. 11 rounds, perfect grip, easy recoil and drop dead reliability.

    I have an XD-45 Compact and carry it every day IWB in an MTAC holster. Conceals very well on me at the 3:00 position. As far as I know, no one's ever spotted it.

    I have the XD45c, and carry it either IWB with a Minotaur Spartan, or OWB with a Comp Tac paddle holster. Mostly OWB, though. I rotate it with a Walther PPS, for when I need deeper concealment.

    I have one as well and waiting on a holster for CC. It is a great balance of size, weight, caliber, capacity and accuracy.
