Hey Bisley, let me know how that compact XD .45 shoots for ya.
Im planing on getting one of those myself.
It shoots great, just like the Service Model. I've been carrying it every day for the last 2-3 months, and it conceals easier than the Service Model, without giving up anything in accuracy or reliability. I don't need the 'old one' at all, any more, but it's just too great a shooter to get rid of. I guess I'll just save it for a grandkid.
