Thank you! I've posted this in three forums and you are the first person to tell me what they thought of the gun rather than the company or argue with others lol. I am leaning very hard towards the XD. The only thing even keeping the 1911 in the picture is how cool I think they are.
Heck yea....1911's are cool and obviously great firearms....I love them also! But for a comfortable carry, ease of maintenance, and price for the quality you cannot do better than that xd sub compact....it was my favorite carry until the xds came along...oh, and congrats on the bird!!
