Welcome aboard. The XD 9mm is a fine handgun, you will hear all kinds of opinions here. If you have fired the XD, shoot it decent, and it feels right in your hand, buy it.

If you have not shot it, rent some different models to get a feel for what feels good in your hands, and which model(s) you shoot well with. There are many fine hands guns, and experience, and familiarity are the best adviser.

Welcome aboard!

My GF bought the exact model and likes it compared to a Glock. As you've seen in a previous post, everyone has a different opinion on what they like/dislike in a handgun.

I prefer a Colt 1911 in the .45, but I tried her XD. I was impressed that it was very accurate for a gun just out of the box. This particular model tends to shoot low though, so I'm not sure how you're doing with your sight picture.

We girls are trying to become more of a presence at the Calguns booth, so you may be interested in helping the folks down south. If you're near Costa Mesa, please read their thread in the Community section and give 'em a holler.

Welcome to the site. It's always great to see more women interested in guns. I wish I could get my wife to go shooting with me. One of these days...
