The wife and I have been considering an XD, or any handgun, for HD and range fun for a few years, just haven't had the motivation to spend the cash. Decided with the possibility that handguns may be harder to get soon, it's time. I'm hoping to find a local gun club with a NRA training course and a CMP program so I can get the M1 I've always wanted as well before it's too late. Anyway, I have my local Springfield dealer ordering me a XD 45ACP Service and I hope to compare it to the 45ACP compact he has. I'm getting my CC but don't really plan to carry, just for ease of transport and that possibility of needing to carry eventually. For some reason I don't like the feeling of the Compact short grip and the extended 13+1 extended mag feels cheap and unstable so I'm probably going with the service model. Is the service model with the 4" barrel still ok for CC? Also are all 45ACP service models 13+1? SA website seems a little confusing, leaves the capacity info out on some of the specs on the 45 ACP. Looking forward to being active here. Go easy on me since I'm a newbie.
