XD 40 Sub-compact

Was thinking about getting one for a carry gun but was wondering how bad the recoil was with the gun being so short. Thanks Josh

There will be some recoil..but it wont be bad. I have a service model and shot PooterWS6's subcompact 9mm and it was close to the same. Im sure the .40 sc will have just a tad more kick.

Do they make that model vented? If so, it will cut down on recoil a lot. My dad has the vented XD9, and it works well.

It's not the "kick" that should be of concern, it's that the muzzle will have a tendency to linft, and you need to compensate for that.

My little (age and size) sister shoots a subcompact Glock in .40 S&W and has no trouble even with the hot shit.

I carry that gun. With a proper grip, you can shoot it fast and accurate.

doubtful... Most sports stores only have service models in stock. They do carry subcompacts but they are all out.
