I'm not sure on this but I though the XD series don't have manual safeties, so I'm back to where I began. That said I also found them to be exceedingly wide at the grip and uncomfortable. Not sure if they're double stack, maybe this model is different, really not sure. Something to think about though...

The XDM 9mm compact is composite with double stacked stainless steel mags with a grip safety, loaded chamber indicator, and locked firing pin indicator, and has ambidextrous mag release button. I like them but I'd like to know others' opinions.

Talking apples, oranges and grapes. An alternative on the 9mm would be the Ruger SR9c at around $400. A light weight 45 carry would be th XD45s or the Glock 36. I had a modified Keltec p11 that was absolutely reliable but stupidly traded it for a PF9 that was not reliable and not much fun to shoot. I now have an SR9c and a G36. What state are you in?

I live in NC. Laws aren't real tight here. I like it. I think I want to stick with the 9mm.

Ok. So I bought a Glock but went with a 26. Held a sub compact and liked it so I decided that'd be easier to conceal than the 19. Thanks for all the advice guys.

I would suggest changing the sights to some type of combat sight like x's big dots. With short sight radius it will make it much easier to acquire targets that way. And be sure to get some practical training with it. Just going to the range and shooting at paper is only a small part of a real life encounter

Well, I am planning on setting up some targets behind my house to practice with. Got a nice "bowl" area with a dirt mound behind it and no houses for close to a mile behind that.

Make sure you consider width for a concealed carry... the single stack v double stack is about an 1/8 of an inch give or take... makes a difference... I carry the keltec pf9 now... its a good little gun... easy to carry...
