I'm trying to find a good carry pistol for my wife. She really likes shooting my xdm .40 with 4.5 inch barrel. I also have a ruger lcp that she hates to shoot. It hurts her hand. So I was wanting to know if anybody has shot the xds 9mm and a ruger lcp ad how the recoil compares. What I really want to know is if I should get her the xds or the xdm 3.8. She wants a semi auto not a revolver and she also doesn't like the double action trigger of the lcp. Thanks for any help.

Not necessarily, but I love my xdm and it's is a reliable gun. And she likes the looks of it and had mentioned wanting one, "just smaller" so that's kinda why I was thinking about them. I just haven't shot an xds. And while I know I could handle it, I'm not sure if she could because she shot the lcp twice and won't even pick it up now. I know she'd be ok with an xdm .9mm though.

Ok. Thanks for the advice. And I'll definitely look into those pistols. I don't know of a place around me where I will have access to a lot of guns to rent. I will do some searching on that for sure. We only have one shooting range real close but maybe there's a couple in a bigger city about an hour away. I do most of my shooting behind the house. I have a 300 yard range setup back there!

I am letting her pick it out. He just really likes my full size xdm 40 as far as looks and feel, but wants something a little smaller framed. She has held quite a few guns, but every stupid gun dealer we talk to tells her what she wants and it's always a .38 revolver ( which she doesn't want!). She absolutely doesn't want a revolver. Not sure why but she doesn't. She is completely in on the decision but until posting I hadn't even thought about going to a gun range and renting different ones for her to try. I have a 300 yard shooting range out my back door so that's where I do all my shooting. But now we are going to go rent a few and see what size and caliber she is most comfortable with.
