Springfield Armory XD® 3″ Sub-Compact 9mm
[XD9801HC]
$419.00
by William B Date Added: Saturday 05 January, 2013
I switched to this 3" version for concealed carry from my 4" inch version. Much to my surprise, the difference is night and day. For experienced XD owners, the story is the same. For new owners to the XD models, there is a lot that makes this gun a good concealed carry. The safety is the biggest selling point for those with small children or are scared of accidental discharges from a dropped weapon. A round cannot be chambered taking the slide back unless the backstrap safety is engaged. And a round cannot be fired unless the backstrap safety is engaged. Besides the polymer frame, the XD models are made of all steel parts. In my opinion, this has an advantage over other pistols who might use plastic parts inside the slide.

I ordered this pistol during the hectic holiday season. It took about 3 weeks with the increased ordering. This is the second firearm I have purchased from Bud's.
