    XD 9 sub compact or compact?

    I have pretty much decided that an XD 9mm will be my first gun.

    I have only shot the SC. Is there any real difference between the SC and compact models?

    Sub Compacts are smaller than the Compacts (barrel length and overall size).

    I just this morning purchased an XD Compact in the 40 cal.
    XD's are excellent guns and you can't go wrong with one of them. MADE IN USA.

    Being that the SC is a little smaller, it would be a better carry gun. I don't plan to carry mine all that much but I will get the permit.

    Shooting wise, is there any difference?

    The only "compact" the XD comes in is the .45 which is the 4" barrel with the shortened grip. If you're getting a 9mm then it's the SC with the 3" barrel and short grip, Service with the 4" barrel and full-size grip, or Tactical with 5" barrel and full-size grip.

    Is there a difference in shooting between the SC and the service? Or is it a matter of preference?

    I am ytrying to decide the same thing. The extended mag with the sc is causing me to lean that way I don't plan on carrying but would like the option that the sc gives.

    I own both. The service seems to hold a little tighter groug at 25 yrds. At 15 yrds. i don't see any differance. I like shooting the sc better for some reason though.
