I picked up a lightly used XD9sub compact earlier this week and got to the range today to test it out. All I can say is..... HOLY CR@%!!! What a fantastic shooter! The felt recoil was MUCH lighter than I expected, it was very very comfortable in my hand, and I am now in love! I only was able to put 125 rounds through the pistol, using both of the mags, and (as expected) it fed and ejected flawlessly. I used 3 different types of ammo (WW white box, Federal, and Remington UMC) and no issues what-so-ever. (The federal seemed to be a hotter load, but w/out a chronograph that is conjecture). The short mag left my pinky hanging and I think I will grab one of the pierce extensions and see how I like that! Next range session will be to put another 200 rounds through it w/ out cleaning from this session, then I will test it out with my self defense / carry load. Once this happens, it will be my new carry piece! Now, to decide on which holster!
