There is a pics thread in the XD section of the forum, take a look & then go hold one at a shop or range.
thats a good point there... he should hold a few different guns to see what fits in his hands the best. luckily for me i have some fairly large hands so i have no problem holding a larger framed gun, but on the other hand small frames are uncomfortable to me. thats why i wont look at anything smaller than a 9mm in a semi
