    I'm thinking about seeing if I can find anyone to trade my XD 45 5" with compact grip for a bi-tone subcompact 45 so I can carry it.

    Apparently they don't make the 45 in 3".

    Is 45 caliber for the weight like 9mm if a guy carries? No gun for home, shooting floor with 45 caliber, but is it for 9mm like 45 caliber when you no gun it to be for men, for 45 caliber instead? or half is 22lr for 9mm?

    I don't like the .45 for subcompacts because of the lack of capacity, and the decrease in velocity.

    place your shot right, and you won't need a .45.

    I have a XD9SC and a good friend has a Glock 30, and while the 30 is a little snappier, it's not ridiculously so. Holds 10 rounds in .45, double stack and is still pretty damn small. I say go for it.

    I guess I'm weird like the TS, because I read the original post and knew exactly what he was saying. :o Maybe it's because I have a XD9SC with the 3" barrel. :o

    But do you have the .22lr for length of .45acp that go to the XD hi-cap? Most of Glock 7 not ability for.40. So what hsmith says is that .45 can an apple but not lunch to the 38spl!! You weight at .45acp pants too much for 9mm.



    Or am I doing it wrong?

    after reading this a few times......

    i think you want to trade for a xd45 service (4" barrel)....not a subcompact

    subcompact = 3" barrel, and they don't make xd45 in 3" model

    Is the 30 a compact or sub-compact?? I was thinking the 29 & 30 were more similar in size to the G19 than to the G26/27 "baby glocks".
     
  25. Glock calls them subcompacts, but they are almost identical in size to the G19.
