The wife and I went shopping for a CHL gun for her yesterday and after trying every gun in the case for fit she asked to see the XD 9mm sub-compact and fell in love with it on the spot. We went to the range today to put some rounds down range and I was blown away with the out of the box accuracy the XD has. 2" groups at 3 and 7 yards and about a 4" group at 12 yards. I am sure she will get better at the 12 yard with more practice. The only draw back to the XD I can see is I may have to retire my Glock and get a XD for myself, lol.
