To buy an XD-9 service. She was anti-gun until her boyfriend convinced her to keep in her home a really small 25acp pistol. After that she became interested in actually getting a concealed carry permit. She was disatisifed with the stopping power of the 25acp as compared to something like a 9mm and so asked me for advice. When I went home at the end of Sept I took my XD 45c with me and let her heft that, as well as a Glock 26 and she liked the feel of the trigger of the XD, the balance in her hand, the comfort and size of the grip and the grip safety was probably the biggest selling point for her. I'll post pictures of her XD when I can get some pictures.
