    Hi all! I'm new to this board and I wanted to start off by chiming in with my praise for this little hand gun.

    I'd been looking for a 9mm subcompact for several months when I came across the XD9 at my LGS. I was there shipping my Glock 19 back to Smyrna, GA for rehabilitation (she'd slapped daddy in the face one too many times!) when the salesman handed me an XD9 full size. I absolutely loved the feel of that gun and the subcompact was just as sweet!

    I bought the little XD9 subcompact this weekend and after drooling on it for two days, snuck out to the range for little play time at lunch. After 100 rounds I had to force myself to holster the heater and drive back to work. That is one fun gun! I was amazed at the accuracy I had with it. And the recoil on that little gun was so easy I could have shot it all day. All this in a small concealable package that holds 14 rounds of 9mm! Wow!

    Welcome, I had the same gun and found it surprisingly accurate for such a small package. Wound up selling it because it was larger than I wanted for carry, but if the size works for you it's a great choice.

    You didn't do wrong by getting the XD9SC. It's possibly the most ergonomic gun I've held, and I've held a lot. It's scarily accurate, and mine has been 100% for over two years. Get the Pearce +1 mag extension, use the 13 round flush mag, and you have 14+1 firepower in a 9mm compact.

    Just ordered mine today.

    One question, I thought the Pearce grip was just a ramp on the bottom of the mag. Is there also a +1 extension or is this the same thing? Thanks.

    Pearce makes two extensions for the SC models. The standard extension simply gives a rest for the pinky. Their "+1" extension allows one more round to be loaded with only about a 1/2" increase in the mag length. I installed this one on my XD9SC and it worked well. Gave me 14+1 capability with the XD 13 round flush mag. Caution on this. They had an earlier model where the follower interfered with the extra round. If your doesn't work, simply eMail Pearce and they'll send you the correct part.
