If you need a .45, the 30 and 36 are good options but 30 is better to carry.

I'm tellin ya, man up and go 29.

No doubt it's big. It's a full size pistol. I've been carrying it for over a year, and they only time it's uncomfortable is when I'm driving. Before that I carried a Glock 23. I don't need a .45, it's just what I have right now. Definitely looking at getting another .40 to replace the G23 I sold. Maybe an M&P 40c or XDM 40c. I like the 10mm too.

I'm not going to get into another ballistic debate, but the bottom line is the .40 has the same stopping power as the .45 which both are superior to a 9mm.

A .40 will allow you to hold more rounds, conceal better due to width if you have a double stacked magazine, double stacked magazines of .40 feed better, have less recoil, etc...

Also by only changing the barrel you can convert your gun to .357 sig which is another great round, just a little more expensive to shoot.

John, you know me. I don't buy anything without diving into the details. A sub compact Glock is uncomfortable to hold and shoot, but if you put a 2+ grip extender on the bottom of your magazines (replaces the plate) it's comfortable and concealable. Everytime you saw me I likely had one or two firearms concealed on me.

I own many clocks including the sub compact 40 an compact 40, they are both great guns. I wanted an XD and will trust one for my safety after personally having some bad experiences with their reliability. If I owned one, it would be for target shooting ONLY.

Anybody here have access to a XD45 sub compact? I can't find one anywhere and it's driving me crazy. I can find all kinds with the full size grip but I'm wanting the shorter grip. Anyone?
