Well it isn't actually my first gun...just the first one I've bought new instead of being given to me. It's a 4" Springfield XD compact 45acp...black frame/stainless slide. Bought it today at the range and put 200 rounds through it. I love it.
I was trying to make that decision too. Since I was able to easily conceal both the 4" and the 3", I went with the larger round...I'm glad I did.Great choice.I also have the XD40 and will not part with it.My next one will probably be a 45 like yours.I am still contemplating if I want the sub compact or 4".
