Do a search for XD Problems, and whatever other one your thinking about - ask your local dealer(s) what they see come back for warranty or rework to help in your decision.
You'll get plenty of recommendations here as this is a great, helpful bunch of folks and very diverse in what they (we) own and like.
My nightstand (and duty weapon) is S&W's full size .40 caliber M&P - which of course I recommend.

Welcome f rom South Carolina.
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.

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
Welcome from Tallassee, AL.
I don't own a handgun yet either. My boyfriend set me up an account on here and now I'm addicted. I check it at least twice a day lol. I had the same question of what am I doing on here. But now i'm SSOO glad I am! Hope you enjoy the forum as much as I have.
"Gun control has not worked in D.C. The only people who have guns are criminals. We have the strictest gun laws in the nation and one of the highest murder rates. It's quicker to pull your Smith & Wesson than to dial 911 if you're being robbed." -Lowell Duckett
Don't buy anything until you try it !!!
I am partial to Glocks, however I know some people hate the grip angle.
My best gun might be the worse for you, so before you shed a few hundreds, go to a range that rents what you are considering, talk to guys there, and try the guns (more than 2-3 rounds).
Finding and buying the pistol is only a small part; now you have to train, not only for proficiency with your sidearm, but also to develop the proper mindset.
If you cannot go to one of the training course, get a little book called"Principles of Self-Defense" by Col. Jeff Cooper. You will not regret it.
The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
The second rule: "Bring enough gun"
