Oh good. From your post, it sounded like you traded both to a gun shop for the XD. Heck, you probably have enough left over to go pick up a sub-compact XD now! That money would be burning a hole in my pocket!
I've been thinking about that since I first started with XD45s.
It'd be nice but I doubt that it's going to happen.
There are a couple of pistols on the market that fit the bill.
One is Taurus' PT145, a ten rd subcompact 45. They are just the right size and the go for $300 to $400. What you have to be careful about is that they have quality control issues and it's hard to find one that doesn't misfeed. You would have to insist on trying one on the range before buying.
Another option is Para Ordnance's P10-45, a 1911 style 10 rd subcompact. Made from the mid 90s to about 2003 they are hard to find. The next generation is the Warthog which is still in new production but the last few years have seen quality control issues at Para so you'd have to check them out carefully before buying.
