I finally got my CCW permit and am torn between these two guns. I have only see the XD online because no one around here carries them, if they do "they are gone in five minutes" so I haven't had the chance to check this one out in person. Although I have seen a ton of reviews on the XD, I can't find much on the Taurus. I really liked the way the Taurus felt, and the XD stats show it is ~1/4 shorter, which may not fit my hand so well. I am not quite sure where the that height difference is. Anyway, do any of you have a Taurus or have any experience with it, if so how is it? I am looking at both in 9mm. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.
