Price range? Righty or lefty? XD-9 subcompact holds 17 15+ rounds with large mag inserted and is very concealable. $430 price range I think.

For self defense carry Glock 26 is the best overall. Some other models can be better in one or another particular aspect, such as the profile, the trigger, etc. but overall the Glock is the reference point.

The 1911 design in a subcompact has its advantages, but takes more training and discipline to carry with confidence.

Having owned the XD and the Glock, the XD is the one I miss the most. Both are great guns and reliable.
The XD was like good wine, it got better with time.

With very little to go on, I'm gonna say the S&W M&P9c.

Very similar in size to the Glock 26 yet is more ergonomic in most people's hands and has the advantage of two additional rounds over the 26.

More options for it too. You can get it with the thumb safety, or without. With the magazine disconnect safety, or without.

The trigger was improved for the Shield, and supposedly Smith will be using the new trigger for all their newly manufactured M&Ps, whether its a Shield or not. I don't know if this has started already or not.

Do not overlook the Ruger SR9c. Depending on where you live it will come with 2 10 round mags or a 10 and a 13 round extended mag. Glocks just dont fit my hand well and the Ruger does. My next choice would be the M&P series. Ruger and S&W are American made.

Consider the Bersa thunder 9 ultracompactpro. It holds 13+1 but may be a little wider than you want, not sure hoe compact you really want. It is ambidextrous and not too expensive. Mine has their satin nickel finish.

They all work for many, you need to go out there and lay hands on as many as you can and find what feels right to YOU. Rent first if you can, buy and then practice enough to prove its reliable and that you learn to shoot it well. Remember the smaller it is the more gun control you need and a better class of ammo is needed when at least new. You may also find you shoot less rounds before fatigue sets in with smaller pistols.
