i carry an xdm 45 compact. i like the shorter barrel since it is less likely to peek out from under my shirt as i carry owb 99% of the time. i use the fullsize 13+1 mags with grip extension most of the time but if i need to go a little smaller to reduce the print i can always pop in the 9 round mag. its just versatile.
accuracy is pretty much the same as my full size xdm 45. im severely tempted by the xdm 9mm solely because of the 19+1 capacity over the smaller capacity of the xd i think its a no brainer
