My girlfriend has fallen in love with my XD-M 9mm and offered to buy me a full size XD and swap with me.

Should I do it?

My use is for CC and Range shooting. I'm 5'8, 190lbs, 33" waist. Will the full-size be too big for me to CC?

Is it more accurate than my XD-M in general (or would I even notice?)

Thanks for any input, guys.

Though I have a dremel I don't think I'm skilled enough to chop the grip. Thanks for your comments. I did try to use the dremel on one of the x-tensions to get it to fit with a 16 round mag and it looked kinda rough, even ugly and it was a real mess with black grit everywhere, lol. I ended up getting the 16 round mag x-tension (which is shorter than the 19 round mag x-tension) for $10 and that was a little loose but works OK.

We had been out picnicking and having a tea party and decided to stop by GanderMountain on the way back to pick up her Ruger LCP which needed to be sent back to Ruger for repair of the hammer mechanism.

My girlfriend was playing 'princess' and was wearing her diamond earrings and a tiara.

While she was picking up her gun I asked to look at the XD and the XD-M compact 9mm 3.8.

She walks over in full 'Queen Elizabeth' getup and picks up the XD-M, racks the slide and ejects the mag and says 'smooth, nicely balanced' or something macho, then does the same to the full-sized HG. The sales guy's eyes bug out and he says 'Are you gonna take that home tonight'.

I put my arm around her and said 'you bet...oh, the XD? we're still pondering the issue. I have one and she liked it and now she wants one'.

He laughed and said 'oh, ok, gee whiz, well come back when you make up your mind'.

It was a hoot and a half.

Thanks for the opinions. I'll let you know how it goes. We have a gun show here in June/July and we'll look for a deal on one then. I'd like to get one with night sights.
