  4. 4 inch is the only length I've shot in XD except for a 1911 5 inch, longer is better for control & accuracy shorter for carry.

  7. I shouldn't but I rotate between several pistols for conceal carry, the two thinnest and ones that I forget I am carrying are my 9mm shield or my XDs 45. With the standard grips all my carry guns are approximately the same height, S&W 9mm Shield, XDs 45, Ruger SR9C, CZ 2075 Rami 9mm and Glock 30S. The largest and still easy to carry is my Glock 19. Every once in a while I carry my Ruger SP-101 3 inch 357 revolver.

    I mostly carry them in a Stoner IWB 415 style Holster. My favorite.

    I shoot the SR9C and the little CZ 2075 the best but percentage wise carry the Shield mostly.

    Monjorgan, I have an LC9 that I purchased as an interim CCW while my XDs45 was off for the recall fix. It is a nice small gun, shoots well, BUT! a horrendously looong trigger pull. If you are comfortable with a revolver or other DA trigger, go for it. If you want something with a shorter, crisper trigger, look for either a DA/SA or SA only semi-auto and carry with 'one in the pipe' (cocked and locked). Your choice then becomes what kind and how much safety you personally need/want.
    I carry either of my XDs' (one 9mm one .45) and feel very comfortable with just the grip and trigger safeties. Others feel better with a thumb safety as well, and some guns demand such a safety (i.e.: 1911). More discussion on this topic is found elsewhere in the forums.
    Get thee to a range where you can try out some options before you plunk down $$$. Not only to fire but also to see how the gun 'fits' your hand and build for carry.
    Good luck, sometimes I miss Illinois (not often) and I have memories of learning to shoot there as a wee laddie in the city of Chicago. Several indoor handgun ranges in those days in the basements of some well-respected establishments . I guess that dates me.

    S&W Shield 9. Great hot weather carry gun. Light weight and easy to conceal.

    Could not agree more. What works well for one does not necessarily work well for another. Always try before you buy if that option is available to you. There are some truly outstanding firearms out there that just simply don't work well for some people. That isn't the fault of the firearms or the fault of the person. It's just that some guns don't match some people well. Browse the forums here and see what's popular and recommended, absolutely, but try not to base your purchase decision solely on the advice of others. Always, always, always try to fire a gun before you buy it. If you can't shoot the actual gun, try shooting a comparable one from the same manufacturer. Sometimes those options aren't available to a purchaser. They don't have the option to try before they buy. In those cases they have to trust the advice of others and hope it works out well for them, and fortunately it most often does. But if you have the opportunity to shoot possible gun candidates before buying them, you should never pass that up.
