      The 5" would make a great range gun and the 4" would make a good packing piece IMHO.

      I agree with Baldy. It really depends on what you're using it for. If it's going to be range only, than the tac might be the way to go. If you're going to CCW the gun, then you may want the service or even the SC. I carry a XD-40 service almost daily and it works well. But there are times I wish I had a compact model.

      Bigger is better for a range and home defense gun.

      I agree... and really the 5" isn't that much different to carry.

      I used to pack a 4" Para 1911 chambered for .40

      It went into the factory for service for a few weeks and I borrowed my cousins 5" Glock and a 5" Kimber .45 for a while. I really didn't notice a diff and I'm not a very big guy.

      The 5" is going to have noticeably less muzzle flip. In a 9mm I don't know if the balance is much different when the clip is loaded, but in a .45 polymer frame the 5" balances better when loaded, IMO.
