    Hey all - I've been using this forum to research the XD before I..... pulled the trigger (had to say it, sorry!).... and I can say with complete confidence that the folks on here sold me on it 100%. Not to mention my buddy who works at the store I got it from has 2 and his coworkers all have one. I'd like to assume if the guys selling them own multiple variations it has to be a solid firearm. I ended up going with the XD 9 mm subcompact with a 3 inch barrel. I ordered a TLR-6 with a laser. I don't plan on doing much more of anything aside from maybe some grip enhancements. Thank you all for the valuable information ! I look forward to spending more time on here

    Welcome from north Louisiana. I have your exact same set-up with XD-9SC w/TLR-6.

    The TLR-6 fits fine, there's no movement and it hardly changes the weight. And is it's easy to adjust onto target; comes with a little tool.

    It DOES rather dramatically reduce the number of available holster options...

    Crossbreed Lite Defender, I think it's called. Very secure, not that comfy.

    Mine will be mostly bedside so I'm not too worried about comfort but would still like something that, if needed, I could wear somewhat comfortably.

    Thanks for the info, I appreciate it!

    That's where I am--I'm not planning to carry this gun in public any time soon, but I wanted to able to do so when needed without removing the TLR-6.
    Absent the light/laser installation, I'd either get some nice leather holster or, more likely, I'd just get by with the plastic doofer holster that came in the box with the pistol.
