I ended up copying you Daniel. Got the subcompact XD .40 today. My choices were between it and the Glock 27. The Glock is lighter, but I like the accessories that come with the XD. Maybe the grip safety is beneficial too. I cashed in some Discover card points for Cabela's gift cards ($40 in points for $50 gift card), and Cabela's price matched Academy so I ended up paying like $70 out of pocket. Here she is next to Stefanie's Ruger LCP.
