Well, if nobody else will give you the straight answer I will. All 3. I know, I know... The economy isn't great and money doesn't grow on trees, but this is 3 nice pistols we are talking about and life in short. Why limit yourself? Save if you have to and buy them 1 at a time...

Nice little gun, did you get her the .9mm or .40 S&W?

The FNP's are exceptional pistols. It's the only poly frame pistol I ever really enjoyed. I have regretted getting rid if mine since it's been gone.

I couldn't decide between an M&P and the XD. I figured I'd rent them both and my decision would be made. Darn it if I didn't love them both. I went through a couple hundred rounds back and forth between the two. I finally flipped a coin and came home with the XD. I really don't think you could go wrong either way.

They are all good. One thing you might consider, the P250 has an interchangeable barrel feature that allows the same gun/serial number to use 9MM, .357 Sig, .40 S&W, and I think, .45 ACP by swapping out the barrels and some other parts. So if you buy multiple barrels, it is still just one gun, legally.

Great choice on the XD! I loved mine, I also loved my M&P too. Both great options.

The XD provides an additional measure of safety if that was ever a concern, plus they are built like tanks.

I was not a huge fan of the Sig P250. I had the opportunity to purchase one awhile back and I opted not to. I am not nearly as impressed with Sig's polymer line as I am with their standbys like the P220 and P226. Plus I have never been a fan of the idea of a modular gun. I just feel that ultimately you can potentially create a scenario for something to go wrong. Just my opinion of course.

Great choice though, that XD will keep you quite happy!
