I went over to the Kittery Trading Post today and looked at a XD-40 Subcompact and a full sized tactical in 45 acp and really like the feel of the subcompact. Even with the short mag I could get most of my little finger on it. They didn't have a 45 compact but I can see one of them looming on the horizon. I haven't figured out the caliber as the subcompact in 40 looked like it could be carried pretty easily but I just like a 45 acp so it's between a 40 subcompact and a 45 compact. I have awhile to decide and change my mind as the money just isn't there right now. I still haven't forgotten the 4" Redhawk in 44 mag.
