    Get a Good Holster and some spare mags. Dont just focus on the 12 round mags get some 9 round ones also.

    Primary use is going to be for concealed carry, but when Im not out it will be left for home protection.. Which is where the light question comes into play...

    Trijicon night sights and maybe a light. As well as a good holster and a few spare mags.

    Welcome to the forums!
    The sc is pretty much an awesome pistol as is. Pick up a Pearce pinky extension, GOOD belt, GOOD holster, and rock on :cool:
    Save money for ammo:D

    IMHO

    Good holster, purpose-built gun belt, TFO night sights, and spend everything else on ammo.

    Ammo, ammo, and more ammo. Even if you are an experienced shooter, the best accessory for a new gun is range time.:)

    I am also new to the forum and have the XDm .40 compact 3.8". This is my first pistol purchase, got it on 3/10 and I love it. I will use for C&C and home protection. So, do I go with a light or a Crimson Trace for an accessory or night sights, mix, what? Trying to figure out which setup is best? I plan on getting a good holster, etc but am really torn on the most useful setup. Thoughts?

    You should start your own thread. Hijacking someones thread is not nice.

    Thanks for the "warm" welcome and good advice. I am new to forums/blogs and apparently etiquette etc. and didn't realize I was "hijacking" a thread. I can assure you it was unintentional. My apologies to Geemico!

    I just installed a set of Extreme grips for my XD9sc and it completely changed the way the gun felt in my hands. I love it and it was the best $20 I spent on my guns.

    Crimson Trace laser (on the rail, not the Grip): I am a fan of lasers < -- No this does Not mean you should rely on them.. most of the time I cover mine with a piece of tape while I am practice shooting

    PRP Drop In Trigger: I just put one on my XDSC 40 - of course I debated for weeks whether I should or not... Great decision, wish I would have done it earlier, Easy to install (make sure you watch the XD video not the XDM one)

    Ammo, more ammo

    Holster - You'll get tons of answers here (Crossbreed Super Tuck is famous on here) However, if you do get a Laser on your pistol (depending on which one) most of your regular holsters will not work, but Crossbreed and other companies make holsters to fit the Crimson Trace lasers
