- purchase cost - there are a lot of choices out there, some are very good values, some are very costly. be sure to establish a budget then research option thoruoughly within that price point.
It will end up as a ccw, so she has decided on the sub compact. She is already familiar with the xd platform as she has fired my xd. 45 many times. Practice ammo shouldn't be a problem, and the price of the weapon it self isn't bad. Thanks for the input.
