Springfield Armory® XD Sub-Compact Pistol
I purchased this gun several weeks ago. I immediately went and put a couple of hundred rounds through it. I would highly recommend this gun. Just as the other reviewers commented, it has a low recoil, and is highly accurate at both 7 and 15 yards. The low recoil can probably be attributed somewhat to the weight. It's a tad bit on the heavy side for a sub-compact. What other reviewers didn't say is that this gun comes with a nice compliment of options. It comes packaged with three magazines (two extended, and one short), a speed loader (not great, but does the trick), a hard plastic belt holster, and a two-magazine belt holster. For the quality of the gun, the packaged options, and the price,... this gun is really really hard to beat!!! I highly recommend it. There is an XD-S model about to be released. It's a slim version of this XD. I will be standing in line.

I've ran about 600 rds thru mine... Not much recoil, so it's easy to keep shots in a tight pattern. Easy to clean and pull apart. All of my mags have pinky extensions so it fits great in my hand. My only issue would be for a subcompact it is heavy but I guess that is offset by how little recoil there is. I give 5 stars because even though it's a little heavy for CCW, it's just an awesome pistol overall.

I purchased this for concealed carry. I like the fact that mine came with a full size mag with a grip spacer to make a full grip. I usually carry this in a pocket holster in cargo shorts or a concealment shirt. It is on the thick side for In the waste band but I do have a good holster for that as well. It shoots very good and I put the Tritium night sights on it as well. The gun also feels good and I am right on target when I draw.
(If you simulate a draw with a glock and you are naturally high, try one of these)

Love this gun
I love this gun. It shot smooth straight out of the box. I was also pleasantly surprised at how little recoil it had for a gun of its caliber and it breaks down quick. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I had hoped for it to be my CCW, but being female, 5'6" and 135 pounds, this thing is near impossible to conceal on my frame. So, if you're small and looking for a CCW, keep in mind this might be a bit bulky to fit that need.
