    Not sure if I should get a XD subcompact or hold out for the XDs?

    Why not a XDM 3.8? Thats what i now carry every day. I had a XD40 Sub Compact and it was a great gun. I like the XDM40 a little more though.

    I have an XD40SC.
    I like it fine.
    AFAIK, there is no direct competitor on the XDm lineup.

    NO.
    What I meant is, that there isn't a subcompact XDm (last I looked). I took this discussion to be about the SA XD & XDm lineup.

    Wait....Kimber? When did they go plastic?

    The 3.8 XDM is very close to the same size as a XD Sub Compact.

    Kind of breaking out the oddities aren't you? Besides its mostly a BUL anyway.
    Certainly not the competitor that most think of for the XD/XDms

    Perhaps it is (was) an oddity but, it IS a Kimber and it is polymer, thus a competitor.

    Layne Simpson did a review of the polymer Kimber and said it would become his primary carry weapon. Of course, he's a gunwriter and is paid to print nice things. Others have stated that they have had a lot of trouble with reliability. I tend to believe those "other's" reports more.
