Hey Guys, I am looking for a better carry piece then what I have right now. I have been carrying a tuarus 24/7 pro but it is just to big. I am have been thinking a lot about a bunch of different guns. I have tried the Kaltecs and ruger 380 but I have big hands and those guns even with the grip extensions are just to small. I have a 1911 from Springfield and I am extremely pleased. So I was thinking that if I enjoy the craftsmanship of my 1911 then I would prob like a xd. I am not much for glocks, I hate the trigger pull on them. So what do you think about xd, How do they perform, any problems you can tell me about, I know the subs are not real accurate very far away but thats what you get with a 3 in barrel. SO what do you guys think.

If you like the Taurus, other than size, take a look at the Millennium Pro series. They are made in 9mm, .40S&W and .45ACP.

Any of the XD's will serve you well. My EDC is my 9sc, however I occasionally will carry the .40 service.

BTW, the XD9sc is capable of 4" groups at 25 yards.

Here's a link to a tourture test of the XD:

I personally dont like the balance and overall feel of the XD in any form the SC is worse...really top heavy. Put a Glock or M&P or any similar sub in your hand with the XD, and the difference in overall feel is very apparent. All modern decent brand semi autos shoot acceptably accurate.

If you like craftsmanship, then the is not XD is not the pistol for you. Its a mass produced pistol, not exactly known for its craftsmanship.

Why not a micro or commander sized 1911?

In what way is it big, exactly? Height, width (thickness), length, grip sticks out, grip circumference, combination?
