I thought my local range pulled a dirty trick on me last week. I showed up, and they had the XD 9 subcompact. They said that my inquiries had promped them to re-stock.
Well, I had to shoot it. I really have narrowed things down to Walther P99c or Glock subcompact 9 (26?). I shot a box of 9 mm through it. Accuracy was good. The best, so far in my own quirky little screening test I've set up.
The trigger bit me every time on the recoil. It shot just like the XD 9 (full size) that I had tried a couple of weeks earlier.
As good as it shoots, as much as I like the safety set up, I don't think I want a gun that bites me when I shoot it.
I get to go try out a Walther in about two weeks. Then I will decide.
Thanks for all the input.
