Well, I must say I was very impressed with the performance of the XD-9 Subcompact. I had qualifications for my job recently and ran through a 50 round course. All rounds were fired from ranges of 9 feet to 50 feet. The course mostly consisted of shooting two-hand strong, but it also involved strong hand only, support hand only, kneeling, and time requirements. I had recently purchased the XD-9 Subcompact so I have not had much range time... but, I still managed to score a 100% on the quals. I had scored a 98% with my XD-40 Service last year, but since I have gotten off the streets I began to carry the Subcompact and I couldn't be happier.
