    New Member in Ohio

    Hi All!

    New member in Ohio. Love to go to the Range and my boyfriend of 5 years is an avid gun lover, and I am finally joining him. I love shooting all types of guns! I am about to be a civil engineer, and we have two little yorkies. I am currently going through my concealed carry and looking for a good subcomapct gun for a small stature women to easily conceal I am really thinking of the xd 40 cal subcompact!

    Thanks!
    Sara

    Welcome from North Carolina!!!! I know the XD40sc is a good gun, but the XDm compact may be better because of the adjustable backstrap. I have a reg. XDm and use the small backstrap-- I have small hands. The XD's grips felt too big and uncormfortable fot me.

    Thanks :) The only thing is the regular compact is to big for my hands. I have smaller hands so I need a really small pistol

    Another new Ohio member

    Sara .. I have a Ruger LCP .380 W/laser sight and find it to suit my needs.

    My wife is small statured and has wrist problems making it difficult for her to operate the slide on the LCP (it's a little stiff.)

    We're looking to buy her a Ruger LCR that's basically the same size, but is a revolver.

    Be sure you buy something that's comfortable to use effectively.

    Good luck.

    Welcome Sara!! My wife really likes my Springfield EMP 9mm and my Kahr PM9. Both are small enough to fit her hands and are easy to control. My XD was too big as you stated earlier. Also use the Ruger LCP .380 but trigger pull is heavy and she does not like it as much. Good luck in the search.
    It's not a problem til they make it one!

    Welcome from another ohioan. Whatever you do, rent several guns if you can. You font want to make the mistake of buying something you hate.
